Daniel O’Donnell The Hank Williams Songbook CD

Daniel O’Donnell’s career has now spanned more than 30 years and during this time he continues to delight fans around the world by his prolific recording and touring activities. Having taken a year off from recording and touring, Daniel is back with The Hank Williams Songbook, which features songs that will be very familiar to his legions of fans. These songs include “Jambalaya (On The Bayou)” which among others has been covered by Elvis Presley and The Carpenters, “Your Cheatin Heart” covered by LeAnn Rimes, Patsy Cline, Van Morrison and James Brown, “Take These Chains From My Heart” covered by Ray Charles, Rosanne Cash, Ann Murray and “Hey Good Lookin” Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and The Mavericks, with it also appearing in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas!

All of these great songs have stood the test of time and have been interpreted in many different ways, which is why Daniel has gone back to their roots to record them in their original style. Country Music has played an integral part throughout Daniel’s career and with the success of 2004’s Welcome To My World (a tribute to Jim Reeves) and 2008’s Country Boy, The Hank Williams Songbook will put Daniel firmly back into the top-end of the Charts.

Daniel has now amassed nineteen Top 30 albums – thirteen of them Top 10 – since January 2000, a feat not achieved by any other recording artist in the UK Album Chart. Daniel O’Donnell is the only artist to have charted at least one new album every year for 27 consecutive years. He has had thirteen Top 10 albums in 14 years, reached the UK Albums chart with more than 30 albums and has spent more than 300 weeks in the UK Albums chart.
