Donica Knight Bio
 

Inspired by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Patsy Cline and Shania Twain, Donica strives to bring her own unique sound that is undoubtedly Donica Knight.

  While studying Special Education at Auburn University, Knight was the lead-singer of the acclaimed cover band “Lucky Town” and garnered experience on the college, wedding, and debutante ball circuit. As she played more and more gigs reaching thousands of welcoming fans, it became evident that she was bound for a life on the stage rather than in the classroom. Entertaining was clearly the vehicle by which Donica would have the opportunity to make a difference and change lives.

  Knight has shared the stage with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Chris Young, 3 Doors Down, Kenny Rogers, Kellie Pickler, Jerrod Neimann, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Justin Moore, The Swon Brothers, Thompson Square, Darryl Worley, and Skid Row, among many others. Her talent even captured the attention of country music superstar Ronnie Milsap who recorded two songs with Donica – one of which she co-wrote.
