Don Henry, says Entertainment Weekly, “comes across as a first cousin to Randy Newman, writing hot-wired songs about born-again whores, interfaith marriages, and the homeless taking over the White House. This is funny and thought provoking stuff, all of it good.” The L.A. Reader calls Don “a piercingly insightful songwriter who uses irony like a scalpel.” Don’s songs have been recorded by legends like Ray Charles, Patti Page, and Conway Twitty, as well as by Blake Shelton, Lonestar, and Jimmy Wayne. He won a Grammy for Kathy Mattea’s version of “Where’ve You Been” as well as Song of the Year honors from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, and the Nashville Songwriters Association International. He’s shared the stage with a vast array of artists from Keith Urban to Joey Ramone. His songs tend to be both funny and thought-provoking, and he sings them with great tenderness and humor.
