Donna Ulisse on Sirius XM

Singer/songwriter Donna Ulisse is this week the guest of Kyle Cantrell on his Sirius-XM Track by Track show. The first broadcast is tomorrow, Wednesday (11/30) at 11:00am (ET).

On the recorded show Cantrell and Ulisse will be dissecting all the tracks on Donna Ulisse’s album An Easy Climb, the summer release on Hadley Music Group Records, all of the 13 songs for which Ulisse wrote or co-wrote. They will be talking about the inspiration for each song and, as the title of the show implies, Cantrell will play each of the tracks.

This is the third time that Ms. Ulisse has been on Track by Track with Kyle Cantrell and the fourth time she has done a full interview for a new release. (Their hour long discussion about her first release When I Look Back came prior to the show’s change of name to Track by Track.)

I asked Donna about the show and what it means to her ….

“Being in the SiriusXM studios is always a day of excitement for me and being interviewed by Kyle is like being in a luxury car that gives a very comfortable ride…he is such a pro and makes me feel right at home. The time just flies by and to be honest, I can’t even remember what I have said when it is all over so when I hear the interview on the air, it’s all new to me! I seem to remember we talked a little about my trip to Russia this past summer as well as my early musical influences and of course the stories behind the songs I wrote for An Easy Climb.  SiriusXM has such a far reach that the days leading up to the premier air date are filled with anticipation and the comments I start hearing from fans are the icing on the cake.  Then after the fourth and final air date, it’s like a holiday has ended. I am incredibly grateful Bluegrass Junction has embraced my music and brought it to so many bluegrass enthusiasts.”

The show is broadcast four times during this week with the full schedule shown below:

  • Wednesday, November 30, 11:00 a.m. ET
  • Thursday, December 1, 9:00 p.m. ET
  • Saturday, December 3, 8:00 a.m. ET
  • Sunday, December 4, 11:00 a.m. ET

The show airs on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction on Channel 61. For more information on Track by Track and Bluegrass Junction visit them online.

Donna Ulisse has released two Christmas songs, You Cannot Stay Here and You Will Be Delivered, both of which were based on the biblical stories of the events surrounding the first Christmas, which were written and recorded this fall.
