jeans and a pearl-snap shirt with tail out and no hat, Donahew didn't fit the Nashville
look, and for a good reason: He's a rising star on the renegade Texas music scene,
building a loyal grass-roots following playing more than 200 shows a year instead

songs as the tender love ballad “Fallen.” And not to mention “White
Trash Story,” which he says celebrates talking about the good times and drinking
down the bad."
