Ira Dean Rides Away From Trick Pony

Ira Dean, one of the founding members of the band Trick Pony, is leaving the group to concentrate on songwriting and a solo career, according to a report in Nashville's daily newspaper, The Tennessean.

Ira's departure leaves Keith Burns as the only remaining member of the band. Original lead vocalist Heidi Newfield left in late 2006, and her replacement, Aubrey Collins, has left as well. Trick Pony scored such hits as "Pour Me" and "On a Night Like This," and was considered one of country music's most entertaining live bands. "It's always difficult when you've been in a group for 12 years," Ira, who founded the band with Keith in 1996, told The Tennessean. "I had more fun with those guys, and we made great music."
