Red Oak Tree video from Donna Hughes

from_the_heartDonna Hughes has released a music video from her two new albums. That’s right… two new albums.

Hughes drops a pair of projects today, consisting of her original songs, packaged separately with different titles. From The Heart is produced as a bluegrass album, complete with fiddles and banjos, where Fly is a piano/vocal project with a mix of her songs and selected standards receiving a more intimate treatment.

Red Oak Tree is the only song included on both albums, with a music video being debuted over this past weekend at a CD release event in Donna’s home town of Trinity, NC. The mayor even presented her with a key to the city.

The video was directed by Anthony Ladd, with Hughes handling the coordination of costumes, props and scheduling.


Both records are available now from CD Baby, Donna’s web site, and popular digital resellers.

Oh… and there are actually two new videos. Prior to the release of Red Oak Tree, Donna put together a hilarious video for her song, WalMart Checkout Line.


Clever girl, that Donna Hughes.
