"Donna is a great writer and singer, an original bluegrass voice crying in the wilderness for the 21st century. We need a hundred more like her."
"That's a great song, and you're a great writer!"
“Hughes is the newest female sensation in bluegrass. She’s not only an expressive vocalist, but an extraordinary songwriter as well.”
“Find Me Out on a Mountain Top, Donna Hughes: Sumptuously doleful tune that sounds like — but isn’t — a century-old Appalachian lament.”
"This is a very impressive cast that infuses her music with a great deal of enchantment. Hughes writes and sings moving and sensitive personal songs with a relaxed, refreshing, contemporary flair."
“Hughes' version of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," would stop any listener: it's solid and rich - better than the original, and Hughes' original "Not Anymore" with her on piano has to be the heartbreaker - flawless.”
"It might be the best bluegrass CD of the year. In a pop world of cookie cutter top forty music, this disc is pure creative genius. This is a must have for bluegrass lovers."
"This lady is one of the best new singer-songwriters in the world of bluegrass. I’m a big fan!"
“Making nary a misstep, Donna Hughes makes a helluva first impression.”
