ST. LOUIS, MO
The Casey Donahew Band's album “STANDOFF” debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country chart and #8 on the ITunes overall chart
The Casey Donahew Band’s latest CD release, STANDOFF is another collection of pure Texas country from one of the Lone Star state’s hardest-working artists and the proof is in the impressive sales debut for the independent act, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Country Chart, #8 on the iTunes overall chart, at #7 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #32 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart.
For over a decade Casey and the band have crossed the country and back, burning up every stage in their path with their unique brand of country, selling out over 60 venues in 2012 alone, in markets such as Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, Arizona, Montana, New Mexico, Nebraska, Idaho, Tennessee and more.
Their debut single, “Whiskey Baby,” topped the Texas country charts and his current single “Small Town Love” promises to be another success for Casey and the band.
Just like their predecessors/fellow Texas acts, the Eli Young Band and the Randy Rogers Band, who broke out and garnered mainstream attention, the Casey Donahew Band is a band on the mainstream verge…they’ve captured the hearts of Texans and beyond for years and soon the rest of the world will know what legions of loyal fans have already figured out – The Casey Donahew Band is the real deal. Casey’s “no holds barred” approach to music, and life in general, give him the upper hand when it comes to delivering his brand of honest music with a message to his fans.
“We’re big supporters of the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms and standing up for what you believe in. We thought it was a great concept for the new album, hence the title. It also sums up a lot of how we’ve spent our career in the music business too. We’ve done it on our own as outlaws outside the system. I’m very excited to take this new collection of songs out to the fans. It’s always fun to make new music. I hope they enjoy it as much as I did writing and making it,” says Donahew.
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING:
“Considering buying a ticket for a Casey Donahew Band show? Strap yourself into your boots. For an act that doesn’t have the production that master showman Garth Brooks had, the Texas six-piece manages to whip their audience into a frenzy that parallels any that greeted Garth in his heyday.”—Country Weekly Magazine
“Donahew, like the Texans who've come before him, is not Nashville. He doesn't sing about happy endings glossed over with a heavy hand in the studio. This is music that breathes a crazy madness, sobering and reflective one song, then upended by a raw and rough-hewn energy that breaks the three-minute, country-radio-friendly rules. It's infectious and fresh….” – Arizona Daily Star
