Johnny’s Outback kicks off its Lone Star Music Series with Casey Donahew in concert on March 26.
In just over 10 years, Casey Donahew has risen from a favorite on the local Texas music scene to a nationally popular touring act that consistently sells out venues across the country.
Donahew and his band burn up stages of all sizes, serving up their own sizzling brand of alt country to its devoted band of eager fans. He has topped the Texas charts time and again with each single, racking up twelve No. 1 singles in the course of his impressive career.
With the help of his wife, Melinda, he has painstakingly carved out a niche for himself on the country scene and built his career from the ground up, one show at a time.
His efforts have pushed him to heights he never could have imagined when he first plugged in on stage at the Thirsty Armadillo bar back in Fort Worth’s Stockyards in the Fall of 2002, and began constructing his own field of musical dreams.
The Lone Star favorite now routinely packs venues across the country. Powering those shows are successful albums, which consistently land at the top of the iTunes sales charts as well as songs on the Texas radio charts.
Donahew has released four independent albums to critical and commercial acclaim. His 2011 release, Double Wide Dream, debuted at No. 2 on the ITunes Country Chart and No. 10 on the Billboard Country Chart and spawned three No. 1 singles: “Double Wide Dream,” “Let’s Not Say Goodbye Again,” and “One Star Flag.”
His latest CD, Standoff, quickly topped the iTunes Country Chart at No. 1 upon its release and also hit the Overall iTunes Chart in the No. 8 position. That album has also yielded five No. 1 radio singles “Whiskey Baby,” “Small Town Love,” “Lovin’ Out of Control,” which is Donahew’s fastest rising single to date, “Not Ready To Say Goodnight” and the most recent No. 1, “Loser.”
Donahew is currently working on his next studio album, All Night Party, with acclaimed producer Josh Leo. All Night Party is scheduled for release in the fall with a sneak peek EP Pre-Party set to drop on April 8.
The Lone Star Music Series begins with Casey Donahew Band on March 26, followed by Earl Thomas Conley on April 9, Aaron Watson on April 23 and Cody Canada and the Departed May 14. Advance general admission tickets are $15.
Tickets for The Lone Star Music Series are available at Johnny’s Steaks and Bar-be-Que or at johnnysoutback.com.
