Johnny Cash once said “You’ve got a song you’re singing from your gut, you want that audience to feel it in their gut; and you’ve got to make them think that you’re one of them sitting out there with them too. They’ve got to be able to relate to what you’re doing.” Well that’s exactly how the Texas music artist Casey Daniels writes and performs his songs straight from his heart and from his gut.
The Denison native, has been writing and singing songs about his life and personal experiences all over Texas since 2009; and has carved out a great path in the Texas music scene so far, and is only growing more and more every day. Gaining a lot of loyal fans with his first single “Country Wild” off of his debut album “Wild Saturday” gave him and his band some success on the Texas charts. The album talks about Casey’s life growing up in a small town in Texas, and it brings new meaning to what a Texas Country artist is all about. He was named the Texas Select artist of the month for October 2013, and has shared the stage with fellow artists such as Stoney Larue, John David Kent, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Casey picked up a guitar and started writing his own songs when he was 18 years old. “I didn’t know much, but I knew that I loved the country greats like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, and Hank Williams, and I just wanted to write and sing songs just like them.” He said “I just want to tell my story through my songs, that’s where I let my guard down, and get personal.” He started out just playing songs for his friends down by the lake and has since turned into playing concerts all across Texas for large crowds he would of never dreamed of playing in front of.
In July 2014, he releases his new single “Bust out the Moonshine” that will be sure to be another success on the charts.
