Biography

Accolades, acclaim and success. These are some of constants that make up Daniel O’Donnell’s life. As each year passes, further achievements come his way … more successful concert tours, more chart records, more television appearances. These days it seems that the successes are no longer surprises and the achievements of Ireland’s most popular “easy on the ear” entertainer is taken for granted.

Accolades, acclaim and success. These are some of constants that make up Daniel O’Donnell’s life. As each year passes, further achievements come his way … more successful concert tours, more chart records, more television appearances. These days it seems that the successes are no longer surprises and the achievements of Ireland’s most popular “easy on the ear” entertainer is taken for granted. Yet the superstar remains as excited and enthused as when he first launched his career.

One of Ireland’s most popular exports, the dawning of the new decade has provided a different element to his life and given Daniel genuine acknowledgement of his achievements. Recognized for his “services to the music industry”, he was awarded an Honorary MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honors list. It was an event that he took in his stride, just as modestly as his various achievements of preceding years but one, nevertheless, that he accepted with very obvious pride.

With the MBE added to a staggering list of awards and achievements collected during a career that’s now into its’ amazing fourth decade, Daniel O’Donnell is broadening his horizons even further - the North American audiences appear to be every bit as enthusiastic as his home-grown fans. Already well known to genre audiences through regular appearances in Branson and playing concerts in locations with predominantly Irish audiences, the superstar has been charming mass audiences with U.S. television specials. The most recent of such TV specials is Daniel O’Donnell From the Heartland which airs nationally on PBS starting March 2013.

The American activities only represent part of the international success story. On the other side of the world, “down under” in Australia and New Zealand, he has enjoyed tour and chart success for a number of years and earned himself a loyal following that stretches across the vast continent from isolated farming townships to sprawling cities.

In keeping with his nature, Daniel O’Donnell’s incredible rise to the top began just as quietly and modestly when he signed with Ritz Records in 1986, although the first inkling of success didn’t come until the following year when his second album, I Need You, slipped almost unnoticed into the U.K. Country Album Charts. It set a precedent that has seen every album that followed entering these charts - and most of them debuting right at the top - as well as several of them regularly enjoying Top 20 positions at the same time.

Even more impressive has been Daniel’s performance in the national pop charts. There he made his debut in 1988 with From The Heart which, although it only achieved a placing at No. 56, won the Country Album Of The Year trophy at the following year’s Music Week Awards. It began a pattern of chart entries and higher positions with each subsequent release, culminating in November 2012 when Daniel O’Donnell made UK chart history by becoming the first artist to have an album in the UK charts each year for the last 25 years consecutively, with the release of his album Songs from the Movies and More.

On the U.S. side Daniel began his career through yearly tour stops in Branson, MO but the airing of his first show on PBS in 2003 really launched his career in North America. By the end of 2004 Daniel O’Donnell had achieved chart success again, this time claiming 9 of the 15 spots on Billboard’s Top World Album chart – including the #1 position with his album Welcome to My World, released through DPTV Media.
(Billboard, December 18, 2004)

Such success not only speaks up for this Irishman’s particular brand of music, but also for that vast, generally ignored, audience not keen on listening to the latest pop discoveries. Such audiences have supported his annual concert tours in the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand, where Daniel not only gives his fans almost three hours of stage time at every concert but also the chance to meet and greet their hero when the show is over. Such sessions often last almost as long as the concert itself and, needless to say, the star still relishes these moments with as much enthusiasm as he did when he first started out in the business.
