Donal Hinely's fifth CD release, Blue State Boy, takes the listener on a musical journey that they soon won't forget. Born and raised in Texas and now calling Nashville home, Hinely writes and sings fresh tales about political concerns, country kitchens, tractor pulls, lost souls, the current state of the American Dream and of course not forgetting a love song or two. Few artists could cover such a broad range so well... placing Hinely in a group as talented as Steve Earle, John Prine or Hinely's musical hero Nick Lowe. Hinely's past CDs have been praised by Paste Magazine, Pop Matters Magazine, Americana Roots & Folk Review. Blue State Boy is destined to be another highly regarded release in this singer/songwriter's rich career.
