DONNIE YOUNG

Texas Two Step

 

You Stole My Heart Again – There Goes My Heart Again – Your Name Crossed My Mind – Take My Broken Heart
 
Donnie Young is a long-time country singer, player,
promoter.  Four of his own compositions were recorded at the McAtee
Studio in Raymore, Missouri, and I have to say, good job well done.  The
steel is especially good, in the hands of Russ Weaver.  Donnie wrote
all of these songs, and you’ll see the words ‘heart again’ appear in the
first two songs, so he’s talking about a love that is about to happen. 
Both of them are very well done.  Donnie was with us at the 38th annual
National Traditional Country Music Festival in LeMars, Iowa, last
year.  For a couple of reasons, he likes the atmosphere at LeMars, and
he also wanted to be with Barbara Fairchild who he works for in
Branson.  He went into our Hall of Fame in 2007, very deservedly.  He
calls himself “The Singing Cherokee” and when he sings ‘Amazing Grace’
in Cherokee, it’s a spine chilling adventure to be sure.  So is this
wonderful 4-song CD that presents four really good songs by Donnie.  I
liked number three best “Your Name Crossed My Mind” which is that really
traditional classic country sound.  Elijah Chastain produced this
session, as well as playing lead/rhythm guitar, bass and piano.  Roy
Stevens joins in on harmonica.  I had a little difficulty telling the
difference in the melody lines in song three and four, but they’re both
good, so what the heck.  You have a good lead line, you have a good lead
line. The backing musicians did a good job for Donnie, so I hope he
comes and sees us again, he’s a great performer.
