American Singer and Songwriter. Dunn wrote and recorded a string of top 10 country hits such as "Daddy's Hands", "Love Someone Like Me" and "You Really Had Me Going" in the late 1980s and early '90s. She began performing in high school and following college at Abilene Christian University, she moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music, singing demo recordings and joining her songwriter-producer brother Chris Waters as a staff writer for CBS Records. After Dunn switched publishing companies to MTM, Louise Mandrell had a top 10 hit with Dunn's song "I'm Not Through Loving You Yet". Dunn released her first single in 1985, with her self-titled debut album the following year, which featured "Daddy's Hands". She would go on to release several more albums, including 'Cornerstone', 'Across the Rio Grande', 'The Blue Rose of Texas', 'Milestones', 'Getting it Dunn', 'Life and Love and All the Stages' and 'Leave One Bridge Standing'. She also co-hosted a morning show on a country station in Detroit and appeared on camera as a host of The Nashville Network's 'Opry Backstage' in 2001 and 2002. In 2003, she officially retired from music, focusing on her paintings which were inspired by her surroundings in the Southwest. Dunn died after a battle with ovarian cancer.
