Donny Richmond loves the U.K. and Ireland and plans to tour here again in 2015. His concerts are considered a “must see” by country music fans. He has appeared on The Grand Ole Opry, and with such notables as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton (right), Garth Brooks (below), and Willie Nelson.
In 2015, Donny releases what's been described as a history making recording. Many of Elvis Presley's studio musicians accompany Donny on "The World Keeps Loving Elvis". This one-of-a-kind recording saw more of Elvis's original studio musicians than ever before back an artist - except for when they worked with Elvis of course.
A beautiful and melodious love song, the lyrics are ingeniously constructed around subtle references to 25 of Elvis' songs. For the making of the video, Donny was also given access to Elvis' coat, his jewelry and one of his Cadillac cars.
