~ DON RICHMOND ~
DON RICHMOND is a Country Music Entertainer whose vast audience appeal and versatility in his music, and whose dedication to his faith and values, is now affecting pop culture internationally. DONNY RICHMOND is the current Country Gospel Music Association ARTIST OF THE DECADE and the International Country Gospel Music Association ENTERTAINER OF THE DECADE. In fact, entertaining has been a way of life for Donny since he was a child. His winning smile, pleasing personality and healthy appearance helped Donny win a contest to pose for a milk advertisement when he was a baby.
Donny was just four years old when he began singing for the neighbors around the kids' swings in the backyard. In the second grade, if it rained and the class couldn't go outdoors for recess, the teacher would call on Donny to sing.
Richmond grew up in the suburbs of Maryland just outside of Washington, D.C. In Junior and Senior High School, he became interested in writing songs and wearing "dude" clothes; and would entertain his classmates. Donny sang at his own Senior Prom, wearing an "outlandish gold outfit, including gold sparkle shoes. After high school and while appearing with bands at night, Donny attended college by day, studying music and acting.
In 1992, while visiting Nashville, Richmond was invited to appear on a special recording project with Stonewall Jackson, featuring many of the all-time top country music artists. Donny found himself in the recording studio alongside Garth Brooks.
...
Richmond moved to Nashville in 1993, and since that time has gone on to make history by charting both on the mainstream Country Music Charts and Christian/Country Gospel Charts simultaneously.
While having many National #1 Country Gospel songs and winning a host of Music Association Awards, Richmond has also clocked up an extremely impressive list of television appearances, including his own "The Don Richmond Show," which had its beginnings in September 1997 for the Christian Television Network in Nashville, Tennessee, and has been viewed by millions in the 9 years since.
In 2001, Donny Richmond's Christmas video, "Heartbreak Holiday," was a smashing hit on American National Country Music Television Networks, including Great American Country (GAC) and VH-1. It has continued to receive airplay each Christmas season, and is now regarded by many as a classic. "Heartbreak Holiday" also led to the Christmas 2005 short feature film of the same name and starring Richmond, which drew rave reviews on American television. Donny has also been featured in Europe on Revelation TV.
It is said that the best way to get to know the genuine warmth and sincerity of Donny Richmond is in his concerts. The wonderful response from European television audiences via Revelation TV has inspired Donny to release more material here, and he is even expressing interest in doing a European tour soon.
As of July 2006, Donny Richmond has three songs simultaneously charting high internationally throughout Europe; "Jesus is My Lifeline," which recently went #1 on both the Euro Christian and Euro Country Gospel Charts, "He Did It Because," currently ranking on the same chart, and "Next Times," which is climbing the European Country Music Charts, currently in Top 20 status.
