    Donna needs to get back on “Music City Roots” soon. She has been one of their more entertaining interview subjects, insomnia and all. I’d love for Donna to record another traditional country album like “Trouble At The Door”, but that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon as she’s too busy walking that mountain down…

    I always thoughtr it was a shame that her first album TROUBLE AT THE DOOR was not a success. I would have preferred that her comeback be based on traditional country rather than bluegrass, but she is a fine singer and I guess her success should be appreciated in whatever form it takes, although I still hope for another country album someday

    Paul has a point there, in that she was already a good and affecting country singer in the first place, major label once, and her vocal timber, etc. are more typical of country. But a) variations in sounds of bluegrass singers should be appreciated and encouraged and b) bluegrass–as with Bradley Walker, who obvioulsy sounds like a hinky tonker, says yes and emraaces her, so there she goes. Exit the steel guitars!
