Polished Edge: 'Casey Donahew Band' Kickin for a Kure in K-Town!
When Casey Donahew
formed his band
and began playing the circuit, he had no idea he would soon be playing some 200 dates a year to packed houses of up to 12,000 people at venues like Grand Prairie’s Lone Star Park and Billy Bob’s Texas, or debuting on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart with his latest CD, “Double Wide Dream.”
The Texas native grew up riding rodeo and began writing songs in high school. To date, he’s released four albums, including the critically acclaimed “Moving On,” his last CD. Texas Music Magazine has described the album as “a vibrant collection matching eternally restless anthems against enraging narratives.”
The band continues to rack up fans all over the Lone Star State and beyond, and in true cowboy form, Donahew humbly defers when asked to explain his growing rock-star appeal. “I think we’re just believable,” Casey explained. “We’re not trying to be somebody we’re not. We’re just normal guys, you can tell. And people see that and respond to it.”
“The Casey Donahew Band” will perform as part of K-Town’s Kickin For A Cure Saturday, July 14, in Kosciusko Hall in Stockdale. Tickets will be $35 at the door.
