The unofficial start to the summer season kicks off this Memorial holiday weekend. Why not make it a party in Mt. Pleasant, Texas?  Mardi Gras Seafood hosts the Casey Donahew Band in the backyard at 8PM.

Casey started out as a fan favorite in all the Texas bars and honky-tonks and through the years his legion of fans continued to grow. From Burleson,Texas Donahew cut his teeth on musical influences like Garth Brooks and the Rolling Stones, so when he hits the stage he comes out swinging. He started playing guitar when he was attending Texas A&M University then eventually decided to transfer to UT Arlington where he went on to earn a graduate degree in finance.

Donahew broke into the Texas country music scene about the time Pat Green, Robert Earl Keen, Randy Rogers were a household name. In fall of 2011 the band released their fourth-studio album Double Wide Dream. The single, "One Star Flag" went to number one on the the Texas Music Chart.

The next album Standoff was released in 2013 and it reached No. 7 on Top Country Albums. The album All Night Party was released late summer of 2016 and debuted at No. 3, making it the highest charting album of his career on Top Country Albums.

Things are just starting to heat up for the summer with the Casey Donahew Band.

Here's the video to his latest single, "Country Song."
