- Donella has been going through some big changes since early
2004 after another successful Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Still being managed by Bev Marsh of Straight Forward Management,
Donella and her team have been planning the next big steps in the
career path of "Donella".
Firstly, Donella will be taking a break from her live performances
until the Mildura Country Music Festival 2004.
Since 1992 Donella has been working full time consistently around
the clock in the country music arena. With the changes that have
taken place this year, Donella has decided to take a break. During
this time she will be focussing on her songwriting, and preparing
for the NEW Donella.
Donella would like to say a big THANK YOU to all her friends in
Country Music, and especially to Chad for all his hard work and
dedication to Donella Plane.
Stay Tuned ---- THE best is YET to come...

Donella’s ability to sound like and act like Dolly Parton, not only with her
singing, but also in spoken voice is the closest impersonation I have seen yet
— and I know Dolly Personally…”
