Casey Donahew Band / Press

““Casey is a man on a mission,” says Kevin McCoy, program director at Fort Worth’s taste-making radio station KFWR-FM (The Ranch). “One Friday night, I escorted a few of the suits to Billy Bob’s to see for themselves. There was a sight to behold: a packed house singing every word to every song and a line to buy his merchandise that stretched around the building. Seeing my guests hold up their cell phones so their superiors back in Nashville and Los Angeles could hear for themselves was a moment I won’t soon forget.” ”

“The scene: Wearing 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 of relying on mainstream radio. Those fans were evident in cheers that greeted such 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.”
