CATOOSA – Texas red dirt sensation Casey Donahew is packing up and heading to Oklahoma to take the stage on Feb. 29 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. 

Tickets start at $19.50 and go on sale Dec. 12. 

Over the past 17 years, Donahew has risen from a favorite on the local Texas music scene to a nationally hot touring act that consistently sells out venues all across the country. Donahew has more than 125 million digital music streams through Spotify and Apple.

Donahew received his first guitar from his grandfather when he was growing up, but it wasn’t until college at Texas A&M that he first began to teach himself to play and really focused on writing songs. A big fan of ‘80s and ‘90s country, he admired the storytelling in the songs of that period, and when a wild-eyed Oklahoma boy named Garth Brooks began employing all sorts of rock show antics during his concerts, Donahew was immediately hooked.

In his career, Donahew has racked up 19 No. 1 singles and released eight independent albums to critical and commercial acclaim. His album “Standoff” quickly topped the iTunes Country Chart at No. 1, and his follow-up 2016 album, “All Night Party,” hit No. 3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and No. 13 on the Top Album Sales Chart and Top Current Album Sales Charts. In 2017, a 15th anniversary record titled “15 Years, The Wild Ride” was released. His latest album, “One Light Town,” was released in 2019 and features 15 new songs and writers like Tim Nichols, David Lee Murphy, Brad Tursi, Matt Ramey and Trevor Rosen, among others.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. Ticket prices and information on upcoming shows are available online in The Joint section of www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com or by calling 918- 384-ROCK.
