Donny Lee will be hitting the stage with his two-hour Nashville style concert titled "The Best Of Country Music with Donny Lee" in Fort Macleod at the Empress Theatre April 27 at 7:30 p.m.


Lee will be performing the most requested country hit songs from his very popular Nashville show featuring favourites from Haggard and Cash through to Garth Brooks and George Strait with lots of chart topping hits plus a few of his own off of his latest album. Lee will be telling stories of his interesting experiences playing music for country fans from all over the world in the famous honkytonks in Music City, Nashville, Tennessee and how he has become one of the most popular acts on the Honkytonk Strip there.
Lee, originally from Ontario has made Alberta his home for the past 25 years. Lee has been performing live country music since his early adult years and it is coming around full circle for him with writing and recording his own music in both Nashville and in Alberta. He has been working hard at perfecting his stage show for the five years at the famous honkytonks such as Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge.
His show is now known as a ‘must-see’ by reviewers.
Lee has also been establishing himself as a professional Canadian Country Music artist. He was chosen as an official Contender round for Nominee in the Male Artist Of the Year and Fans Choice Awards for 2017 with the Alberta Country Music Association and Donny Lee strives to work hard at representing Alberta Country Music by performing more shows here at home in 2018 to play for his fellow Albertans. He loves performing real country music with a full band featuring fiddle and steel guitar and tries to incorporate those sounds in every song.
He discovered early on his gift for connecting with people coupled with his musical talents of singing and entertaining crowds with his magnetic personality.
His Dad taught him how to play guitar on a vintage 1965 Gibson Hummingbird when he was young and he won many singing competitions as a child with his natural talents while learning the art of entertaining and playing on stage in his parent's country music band.
He now plays what he affectionately calls Dad's Guitar on stage and you will hear his song titled Song For Dad at his show, as a tribute to his late Father.
He introduced his first release to Canadian Country radio in March 2017 with Country Way Of Life off of his self titled album Who I Am, made up of seven original songs. That song is about a simpler pace of life lived by those who work hard and enjoy the simple things. He followed that single up with That Would Be Me, released in September 2017, a song he wrote about himself and his personal priorites of putting family first in life.
His third release to come in 2018 is called Another Round Of You written by Blake Shelton's writing team.
Donny Lee has become a very popular act in the Nashville Honkytonk live music scene and is looking forward to sharing his show and what has made him a popular act in Nashville with his home audience in Alberta.
