Casey Donahew, a country singer-songwriter, will perform at George’s Majestic Lounge Jan. 31 at 9 p.m.
Donahew, 42, is a born and raised Texas native. When he started high school, he began writing his own songs and dabbled in the guitar, but it wasn’t until Donahew attended Texas A&M that he started playing the guitar frequently, according to Donahew’s website.
As his popularity rose among college students and his online fanbase, Donahew reached the country Top 30 chart in the Billboard magazine with his third album “Moving On,” according to Billboard. Since his start, Donahew has released six albums with his band the Casey Donahew Band.
“I like his music because he has a new and different sound from the typical big-name country singers,” freshman Carey Lawrence said. “He gets at the roots of what country used to be.”
Donahew’s music comes from personal experiences and reaches emotions that can only be written through living, loving and losing, according to his website.
Tickets to Donahew’s show are available for purchase at George’s Majestic Lounge website. General admission is $23 and will be $25 the day of the show.
