"TURN TO STONE" VIDEO REVIEW
This lady rocks! Lynne Taylor Donovan has got a good classic feel to this music and a whole set of talent surrounding her in this video for the single “Turn To Stone.”
It has elements of rock & country with sharp dynamics and melodic harmonies in the music that support Lynne Taylor Donovan’s rock-raspy sweet vocals.
She puts in an outstanding performance here on an all-around great song that really showcases some of the real heart that can be found in the world of rock-country music.
