The undeniable Southern sound of Donnie Lee Strickland was born in North Carolina. Donnie was influenced by the music of George Strait, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Randy Travis, The Judds, and Reba McEntire, which inspired him to sing in church and perform in school plays and local festivals. Donnie has entertained crowds all over the United States with his rich baritone vocals, performing as a special guest on the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree in Nashville, TN, along with Grand Ole Opry stars Jan Howard and Jean Shepard. Donnie was a nominee for the Fan Choice award at the 2018 ICMA Awards, and was awarded the 2017 WOBA Song of the Year for "She's My Kind of Woman", the 2017 Josie Music Award for Modern Country Male Artist of the Year, and the 2018 Josie Music Award for Modern Country Male Entertainer of the Year and 2019 JMA Modern Country Male Vocalist of the Year. Donnie has new music coming soon!

I started out as a street performer, writing songs and driving around the country to play them for people. Slowly, this led to playing more proper shows, but the goal has always been the same. to make people care — about others, themselves, and things that sometimes hurt to care about. I've toured across North America/Europe and been called "an artist to watch" by No Depression.
