Praise for MacDonald’s latest release Rants and Romance:
“Yes, yes, yes! I just listened to the CD. Magnificent. Your best work yet. I don’t know which track I like best. I just want to listen to it again and again. Lyrically rich, musically intriguing, ” Craig Harris/WAMU-FM/Bluegrass Country Radio“Fresh, full of energy, emotion and surprising cover tunes.

It’s like hearing him for the first time.” Marilyn Rae Beyer, WFMT’s Midnight Special“I absolutely love your new CD and featured it Tuesday….Thanks for staying true to what you do best.” Craig Huegel, WMNF“Rants and Romance..it is fabulous.
