Now Playing: Always In The Wind
Ronny Cox released his latest recording, "Songs...with Repercussions" and saw his latest film "Imagine That" (with Eddie Murphy) come out all in the same month.
"Repercussions" hit #1 on the Folk Charts and remained there for the month of July, 2009.
The songs on "Repercussions", like Ronny, are eclectic, funny, touching, insightful and compelling. Ronny tours constantly, but still seems to find time to make a few movies.
While Ronny started out as a musician and has emphasized that side of his career for the past few years, he still is one of the most respected and sought-after character actors in Hollywood. Since his debut in John Boorman's film "Deliverance" including playing guitar in the famous "dueling banjos" scene, Ronny has appeared in over 50 films including "Beverly Hills Cop(I & 11)", "Bound for Glory", "RoboCop", "Total Recall" and too many others to mention. He has starred in numerous TV movies and in the TV series of "Apple's Way", "St. Elsewhere", "The Agency" and of course as Senator Kinsey in "Stargate SG1". Last year he was seen opposite Carol Burnett on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives. He has just completed five weeks of shooting as co-star in the new Eddie Murphy film, “NowhereLand”, scheduled for release in the fall of 2008.
In the past few years Ronny has concentrated on his music. The results include his being named a finalist in the South Florida Singer/Songwriter competition, headlining such venues as the prestigious Old Town School of Folk in Chicago and hitting one of his favorites stops along the way, the annual Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, Texas.
