received national recognition with his single, 'Drive That
Rig To Glory' (GrAMM / IRDA) that made it to Billboard's
Hot Country 100 singles chart. The single spent several
weeks on the charts of radio stations across America, including
nationally-known CBS Chicago WMAQ Radio 670 - topping out
at number 30. Craig has made four studio albums to date:
'You'll Never Get Away With It' (1981), 'Hang In The Balance'
(2008), 'Keep The Change' (2016), and 'Say It Out Loud'
(2017) - working with some of the industry's best.
Among his studio credits, Donaldson was an executive producer of multi-platinum recording artist Tim Weisberg's 'Naked Eyes' CD, and his writing and arranging can be found extensively on 'New Horizons', the debut album from the Australian band, Wickety Wak (EMI Australia) that went gold in 1983 in Australia - as did the album's hit single 'Moonlight Marvel' - and made its way to audiences in Belgium, Russia and other international markets. The song is one of several that Donaldson co-wrote with his long-time songwriting partner, Tim Schumacher, with whom Donaldson continues to write.
As a solo recording artist, Donaldson's 2008 CD 'Hang In The Balance' garnered him Radio Indy's prestigious Grindie Award, and the single from that CD, 'My Heart's In The Right Place', was the 7th most added song on Adult Contemporary Radio's Friday Morning Quarterback Report - placing him ahead of Brad Paisley and Britney Spears and giving him an overall ranking in the Top 100 (95) ahead of Taylor Swift and Chris Isaak.
