Format: Audio CD
I once interviewed many of the best known bluegrass writers in the 1980s and concluded that almost anyone can write songs, but very few can write hit songs. You must have a certain degree of creativity, inspiration and motivation within yourself to be successful. Donna Hughes, from central North Carolina, gives us a crisp mix of 21 originals on this 68-minute release. Some of her songs have the potential to become contemporary bluegrass or folk genre hits. Although classically trained on piano, Hughes has a deep fondness for bluegrass music and has performed with regional bands, Wildwood and Different Directions. Hughes capitalizes on her bluegrass foundation to adorn her presentation with modern perception and awareness. This project's breezy singing, with first-rate accompaniment, will reinforce her position as an enchanting artist with a great deal of charm.
Hughes writes and sings her introspective songs with a relaxed, refreshing, contemporary flair in a style not dissimilar to that of Alison Krauss, Jeanette Williams, Valerie Smith, Dale Ann Bradley and Nickel Creek. Familiar themes of relationships, rambling around, perils of drink, heading home, and motherly love are covered. Sometimes her melodies and messages seem a tad alike and trite, especially with her many references to hearts and dreams. The album's opener "Where Are You Darlin'?" is a tale of anguish in which she sings, "Along with all my dreams/I can't go on, I can't go back." "Almost Home" states "I'll be waiting for the day and I'll be dreaming of your face."
Happiness and love only appearing in dreams is the subject of "A Dream." Her song, "Memories and Dreams," is a tribute to the favorite things she's taken away from home.

Same Old Me - even though it is a 2003 CD is excellent music. The music is current and the production are really good. If you are enjoying Donna's 2007 release - Gaining Wisdom - I recommend this CD as an excellent companion. "Same Old Me" has different studio musicians, but they do a great job. I bought the real CD of Same Old Me - hoping for liner notes but there are none. Buy the online version for less money than the real CD.

This is one of my all-time favorite albums since I've come over
to the bluegrass side of things in the last year.
Her vocals and writing abilities are amazing and just seem
to flow naturally. I am very much hoping we will have a new record
from Donna in the very near future.
