CASEY DONAHEW BAND PREMIERES
WESTERN–THEMED VIDEO FOR “WHISKEY BABY”
ON MULTIPLE CMT PLATFORMS
NASHVILLE –(May 29, 2013) — The Casey Donahew Band strapped on their six guns and stepped back in time to the Wild, Wild West for their latest video for their brand new single, “Whiskey Baby,” which premieres TODAY across CMT platforms including; CMT Pure, CMT.com and the mobile app CMT Inside. The new clip can also be viewed here.
The video is also the first to feature the new “Lonestar All-Stars” graphics on CMT Pure noting popular Texas country artists. The Texas native and his band mates look right at home fighting tyranny and injustice on the plains in the clip, which was directed by Evan Kaufmann, (who also directed Casey’s hilarious “Double Wide Dream” clip as well.)
The video follows the theme of Casey’s latest CD, STANDOFF, which was inspired in part by spaghetti Westerns of the past and features a vintage Western movie poster cover starring Casey and the band as the “six gun defenders of the doomed plains, outcast into the badlands for crimes they didn’t commit – forever in a standoff with tyranny while serving justice to the guilty.” In the clip, the boys run into trouble against some evil forces and end up rescuing a damsel in distress in a standoff, and if Casey looks right at home brandishing that iron and mounting up to ride off and save the day, it’s because the native Texan grew up roping and riding in his Burleson, TX hometown, the place he still lives and works today on his own spread when he’s not burning up the roads selling out shows across the country.
STANDOFF was released April 16th and quickly landed in the Number One spot on the iTunes Country Chart, and at Number Eight on the Overall Chart iTunes. Casey penned every track but one on the hot new collection, including the new single “Whiskey Baby,” which is climbing the mainstream country and Texas radio charts.
