"February 21, 2015 is an important day in the history of country music. An old friend reappeared! After years of silence the Old Dominion Barn Dance is back, and in a mighty way. Me and the Fabulous Superlatives considered it an honor to be a part of the grand re-opening of this treasured country music institution.
My love and congratulations to Donna and all of the Old Dominion staff on an absolutely marvelous day. Long live the Old Dominion Barn Dance' –
“I have to applaud Donna Meade for keeping traditional country music alive in the great state of Virginia. She’s an old friend and fellow artist form Nashville and when I heard she was turning the lights back on the Old Dominion Barn Dance, I just had to raise my hand to come and play. And boy am I glad she was so kind to host the John Anderson Band in Richmond. I know Jimmy’s proud and rightly so, because Donna understands what were all trying to do out here and I hope everyone supports her.”
“ I was blown away by the reception that Donna Meade [Donna Meade Dean-Stevens] gave me at the Old Dominion Barn Dance. The band and I had a blast and enjoyed both audiences being part of the action. The Henrico Theatre was wonderful and the whole presentation of the show was first class all the way. I know Donna cares about the Barn Dance and country music and hope she’ll have The Ronnie McDowell Show back again real soon. Thank you old friend.”
