Trick Pony Rides Again

It’s been 7 years since Heidi Newfield, Ira Dean and Keith Burns went their seperate ways. Country Weekly is reporting today the trio has reunited and will record new music and tour this year.

“You can’t go forward unless you’ve visited your past a little bit and go, ‘Let’s not do a repeat performance of that,’” says Heidi. “We’ve done that, and we’re all in a really healthy mind space.”

Ira adds it’s not like they took the years off. He spent the years producing bands and writing songs for Montgomery Gentry and Rascal Flatts. Heidi has a run as a solo act. And, Keith teamed up with Michelle Poe to become Burns & Poe, which earned MusicRow’s 2010 Independent Artist of the Year title.

Along with today’s news, they have relaunched their website,, to keep up with the band as they get back to work.
