A lot of fans of country music can see the decline. No longer do our favorite singers sing about country living or rodeos. It seems to be more about trucks and snapbacks these days. Long gone are the days when country music was three-chords and the truth. Im here to show you that's not the case at all. This weeks Roadhouse Country Artist Spotlight is Casey Donahew. 

"I still team rope. I've been team roping for decades now and just grew up in a sale barn and been around cowboys and horses my whole life," Says Casey. "We end up playing a lot of rodeos every year. It's just something that I just kept writing songs about and they just kept coming out, so we've kept recording them"  

And the bands new album "All Night Party" is no different from albums of years past, except you can hear a few more rodeo and cowboy tunes. 

"I don't try to get too far away from what got us here, but you know, there's kind of a rodeo them to the new stuff. It seems like we've got several songs about rodeos, cowboys, and country living, and I think it's gonna be a big deal with our fans."

And that hold true for there one of the songs on the album, "What Cowboys Do" is sure to be a hit with the rodeo fans and the cowboys who still believe in real country music.

"People that don't rodeo, don't get it. There's no guaranteed contracts in rodeo. They travel up and down the road on their own dollar. It's kind of similar to what we do as musicians. It's a hard life. Up and down the highway. It's one of those songs I love. The arrangement is really fantastic. I'd love for that to be a single, but they tell me cowboy music is a tough sell in the radio universe these days"

It may be a tough sell for the ones who like to pander to a "Bro" demographic but people who love country music for the sound and the truth is sure to fall in love with Casey's sound and stage performance while he's traveling the road with his band.
