Donna Hughes is excited to announce not one, but TWO new album releases this year and she’s inviting her loyal fans to be a part of it. The charismatic and extremely talented Singer-Songwriter put together a video introduction for these two new albums and is inviting fans to check out various levels of participation at Indiegogo.com.

Earlier this month, Donna recorded these two new albums at what might be called marathon recording sessions at Hilltop Studio in Nashville with Engineer Steve Chandler. They recorded 29 songs - 24 brand new originals and some just days old!
Joining her in the studio and appearing on the new Bluegrass album entitled, FROM THE HEART, are: Tim Stafford (Lead Guitar), Scott Vestal (Banjo), Rob Ickes (Dobro), Jenee Fleenor (Fiddle), Cory Piatt (Mandolin), Zak McLamb (Bass), Lucas White (Rhythm Guitar), and special guest Andy Kearns as Auctioneer on her original song “Gone.” Jenee also lends her violin talents along with John Catchings (Cello), Mark Fain (Bass Violin) and Donna Hughes on Lead Vocals and Piano on Donna’s new piano album, entitled FLY.

Donna certainly showcases her tremendous songwriting talents on both projects with 16 original songs plus 1 cover song on the Bluegrass album, FROM THE HEART with 8 originals plus 4 covers on the piano album, FLY.

In 2001, Donna released her first album entitled SOMEWHERE IN TIME, where she wrote 9 of the 15 songs. In 2003, she released SAME OLD ME, where she contributed all 21 songs, which opened many doors. Her next two albums were released on Rounder Records. GAINING WISDOM, produced by Tony Rice, was released in 2007 where she wrote 12 of the 14 songs. Her 2010 HELLOS, GOODBYES, AND BUTTERFLIES album was produced by J.D. Crowe and included 15 original songs. Donna has 133 original songs for sale on i’Tunes.

Donna has received impressive radio success throughout the years. She previously reached #1 on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction’s Most Played Albums with HELLOS, GOODBYES, AND BUTTERFLIES along with many other bluegrass singles charting in various genres of music. She has written many noteworthy songs for many other artists as well, such as: “Sad Old Train” by the Seldom Scene; “My Poor Old Heart” by Alison Krauss & Union Station - who also performed the song at the 2005 CMA Awards; “Never Gonna Change” by Kati Penn; “Scattered to the Wind” by Darren Beachley; “Little Bluebird” by The Snyder Family, and many more.

Donna will perform today at the Senior Center Volunteer's Dinner in Asheboro, NC; June 29 at the Tabernacle Baptist Church Service in Troy, NC; July 16 at Center Park in Greensboro, NC with many more dates soon to be announced.
