Numerous other artists have recorded her original tunes including, but not limited to:
Alison Krauss & Union Station recorded My Poor Old Heart that appears on AKUS Lonely Runs Both Ways. The album won a Grammy for Country Album of the Year (Alison’s 20th Grammy – the most ever won by any female.) Alison Krauss & Union Station, featuring Jerry Douglas performed this song at the CMA Awards in 2005. The song is also included on Ron Block’s instructional DVD.
The Seldom Scene – “Sad Old Train” on the album “SYNCHRONIZED“ nominated for Best Bluegrass Album Grammy in 2007.
Nu-Blu - “Nights” – Title track from the band’s 2010 album.
“The Donna Hughes song is suffused with the longing and profound ache Hughes delivers as well as any writer, and Nu-Blu makes it work by trimming down its instrumental attack, leaving only Luck’s mournful fiddling and Daniel’s stark acoustic guitar picking to craft a stark, abject soundscape for Carolyn to offer a stirring, restrained reading that packs a punch by being so controlled. The song is a keeper, and so is the entire album. Figure on Nu-Blu hanging around for awhile.” The Bluegrass Special.com review of “NIGHTS” by Nu-Blu
Kati Penn – “Never Gonna Change” on the album, “MY TURN TO CRY“ released in 2008.
Darren Beachley – “Scattered to the Wind“ from his album ‘I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK” released in 2009.
The Snyder Family Band - “Little Bluebird” on the album “COMIN’ ON STRONG“ released in 2010.
