He has a thing for country music from the eighties, he’s a big fan of Garth Brooks, and he’s from Burleson, Texas. Did you guess who it is yet? Yes? No? It’s Casey Donahew, a Texas country singer that loves great lyricism. On November 9 at Hurricane Harry’s, Casey Donahew and The Casey Donahew Band will be performing some of their hits.
Donahew is special amongst his country music counterparts. Even though he has always been musically inclined, he didn’t grow up as a musician. In actuality, Donahew grew up on a farm, riding and team roping. He began writing original music in high school, but it wasn’t until he was gifted a guitar from his grandfather during his college years at Texas A&M University that he chose to teach himself how to play it. This was the start of establishing his musical dreams.
In 2002, Donahew began playing gigs at local bars and appealing to the younger mass. Social media was becoming prominent at the time, which allowed Donahew and his band to grow out of the local bar scene and begin playing for bigger audiences. He’s built a strong base of followers that support him wherever he goes. On August 15, 2006, the Casey Donahew Band released their first album “Lost Days,” spurring the drive to produce even more music and grow as country artists. Through their music, they explain the good, bad and the in-between in life. This resonates with listeners because they can relate to the lyrics.
Even though Donahew is predicted to grow even larger as an artist, he is happy with the success that he has acquired. He’s never been about the fame or the labels he is signed to. It’s always been about making good music. The Donahew fans appreciate this aspect, keeping them coming back for more. On stage, Casey makes sure his lyrics are authentic and are able to move everyone in the crowd. His songs range from heartfelt, to foot-stomping, hand-clapping, nothing-but-a-good-time country music.
Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the band will take stage at 10 p.m. For more information and ticket prices visit http://harrys.bcsclubs.com/events/.
