Bad Good Ole Boy - Donnie Wood
I grew up on a farm in southern Frederick County, in a small town called Ijamsville, Maryland. My granddad taught me some old country banjo picking and my grandmother had me in the local church choir at an early age. I took classical piano lessons for 9 years and a year of guitar lessons. I continued singing in school chorus, including solos during concerts. I was selected several times to the All County Chorus, and sang leading roles in several school productions. As time went on and life happened, I was taken in a different direction from music.
For most of my life I played some type of baseball starting out in little league, through high school and ending up in professional baseball. Then I joined the Army where I traveled around the United States playing All Army Softball. After my softball career, I decided to try my hand in drag racing. It was fun, but not fulfilling, which lead me back to my music. In 1992, I married Susan who encouraged me to get back into my music, so I started singing again. This led me to picking up the guitar, banjo and playing the piano again. After recording a demo CD of cover songs in Frederick Maryland, I found my way to Nashville.
A co-worker, introduced me to Paul and Tre' Corley of Oak Tree Productions in Hendersonville, Tennessee. They listened to my demo, and thought I had a good chance, so with their help I recorded my first professional album as an independent recording artist.
The album “Livin’ My Dream”, released in March 2010, contains 10 original songs. Also while in Nashville, I started singing in some of the local honky- tonks and met some very talented people who have also encouraged me to continue on with my music.
Since then I have posted a websitewww.DonnieWoodMusic.com, done a video of my signature song “Cheap Seats” with Bell-Jarboe Films, Nashville (available on YouTube and my website), signed with a record label for a year, and started my official business “F2N Entertainment, llc.”
My current project is titled, “Bad Good Ole Boy” and was recorded at Oak Tree Productions and this is the title video from the CD.
