Bio

Hi Everyone,
My name is Donnie. I'm a small town guy from Fayetteville, Al. Growing up on the horse & cattle farms. I loved listening to the Country music played at our farm on weekends. So I started learning all the music I could, waiting to hit the stage. I knew then, It was my calling. Once I finally got my chance to sing in front of my first crowd. I was hooked.. So I started begging anyone who would let me sing..Once I had it in my blood, I couldn't get it out my system.

I started my career back in the 80's. playing with local bands through out Alabama. Working with my Dad's band, and many others. I decided to take my music my own way, and find my own path. Getting in with local songwriters, and branching out on my songwriting.. Working with songwriters like Lonnie Carmack, & Don Ricks. They taught me a lot.

In June on 2000, I met a woman named Wanda Baird, Who gave me a shot on stage in Nashville, Tn. at the Earnest Tubb Theater.. I can never thank her enough, for believing in me, and helping me all she could..She was my blessing in the business. I later went back to Nashville in 2004, recording my first album called Haunted Memories. A mixture of cover songs mixed with songs of my own. Doing real well with my first album. I decided to cut my second album in 2007. With a mixture of the songs I'd written, and others from great writers from Nashville.. August 22, 2008, we released my album titled Truck Driving Honky Tonk Cowboy.. This album is doing great as well..

Since my career started, I've had a chance to Open for many of the Legends in the business, Like David Allen Coe, George Jones, Charlie Louvin, Jack Greene, Mel McDaniel, Merle Haggard, and many others. I've played venues from 35 people in bars to 35,000 fans at bigger venues..I love the Texas scene better than any other place to play. Places like Billy Bobs, in Ft. Worth, Tx. The rodeo scene is where I hope to land someday. Right now, I'm working on new material for my third alum we're planing on releasing in 2010..Watch for Donnie, He'll be coming to your town soon..God Bless You All!!!!
