It was a fabulous concert.

I have always been a fan of Gene's music; in fact, when I started singing in my first band, I learned his song 'Paper Rosie' (written by Dallas Harms) and included it in my programme.

I was thrilled to hear him sing 'Paper Rosie' (written by Dallas Harms) on Wednesday night.

As long as Gene Watson is able to sing, country music will never die'

About Daniel O'Donnell...

Daniel O'Donnell

Daniel O'Donnell was born Daniel Francis Noel O'Donnell on Tuesday 12 December 1961 in Dungloe, County Donegal, Ireland, to parents Julia (nee McGonagle) and Francis O'Donnell.

Francis and Julia O'Donnell

Francis and Julia O'Donnell

Daniel O'Donnell has four siblings, John, Margaret (Margo), Kathleen and James.

During his school years, Daniel O'Donnell considered pursuing a career in banking.  Despite this, a career in music was also always a possibility.

As a youngster, Daniel O'Donnell performed in the local religious choir.

Margo (Margo O'Donnell)

In 1980, Daniel O'Donnell went to Galway to pursue business studies.  However, he never settled in Galway and, by Christmas, he was a member of his sister Margo's band.  Margo had already forged a successful country music career in Ireland.

On Thursday 28 January 1982, Daniel O'Donnell first stepped on stage with Margo’s band, with an electric guitar, which apprently he couldn’t play.

One of the members of Margo's band tried to teach Daniel how to play guitar, but he was more interested in singing.  Daniel O'Donnell was allowed to sing out-front sometimes.

Daniel O'Donnell learned a lot about the country music business while he was a member of Margo's band.

In 1983, when he was not getting enough opportunities to perform solos with Margo's band, Daniel O'Donnell decided to record his own record.

On Wednesday 9 February 1983, Daniel O'Donnell recorded his first single, 'My Donegal Shore' (written by Johnny McCauley), with £1,200 of his own money, selling all the copies himself; he also recorded 'Stand Beside Me', 'London Leaves' and 'Married By The Bible'.

In July 1983, Daniel O'Donnell formed his first group, which was called Country Fever.

In June 1984, after the group disbanded, Daniel O'Donnell formed a band called The Grassroots.  Daniel also got himself a manager called Nan Moy, who had managed Margo.

The Grassroots did not achieve success in Ireland, but they were popular in England.
