Donna Ulissee & The Poor Mtn Boys

After moving to Nashville in the 1980s, Donna Ulisse quickly became an in-demand demo singer and background vocalist, lending her voice to recordings by legends such as Jerry Reed. A production deal with Dale Morris, manager of the supergroup Alabama, led to her signing a recording deal with Atlantic Records, which in 1991 released her well-received traditional country album, Trouble At The Door, and two singles that cracked the Billboard country charts. Despite critical acclaim, however, the album failed to generate widespread attention, though it remains a worldwide favorite today among discerning fans of fine traditional country music.

Since then, she has released six more well-received albums for Hadley Music Group, each incorporating traditional and contemporary bluegrass, gospel and country: Walk This Mountain Down (2009), Holy Waters (2010), An Easy Climb (2011), All The Way To Bethlehem (2012), the gospel compilation I Am A Child of God (2013) and Showin’ My Roots(2013). Her 2012 release, a stunningly original song cycle relating the story of Christ’s birth, drew rave reviews, including: “may be the best Christmas story-related country album of 2012” (Country Standard Time) … “a work of art” (The Bluegrass Special) … “a masterpiece” (Bluegrass Unlimited) … “a grand adventure told in song” (
