The Worthington Windsurfing Regatta & Music Festival Board is pleased to announce Casey Donahew as the 2021 festival headliner on Friday, June 11, 2021.
Casey Donahew has charted his last four albums in the Billboard US Country Top 10. The 2016 album "All Night Party" re ached #3 on the US Billboard Country Chart, his highest chart position to date. On July 26, 2019 his album "One Light Town" was released and made its debut at #2 on the Billboard Country Album Sales Chart.
The Burleson, Texas native (with the help of his wife Melinda) has painstakingly carved out an impressive niche for himself on the country music scene over the past 17 years, attracting a solid base of loyal fans who flock to his legendary live shows. Building his career from the ground up one show at a time, he’s managed to perform on countless stages night after night in front of thousands, topped the Texas music charts 18 times, released all of his albums independently to critical acclaim, and forged a path all his own through the music scene without the aid or muscle of a major record label or power-suit management company.
Over the last 17 years, Casey has racked up 18 #1 singles and become a national headliner, playing coast-to-coast and selling out venues. He has released eight independent albums to critical and commercial acclaim. Donahew’s "Standoff," quickly topped the iTunes Country Chart at #1, and his follow-up 2016 album "All Night Party", hit #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, and #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. The collection featured updated recordings of Donahew’s most popular songs from the first part of his career, as well as a recording of Matchbox 20’s 3AM, a song Casey played for years live before finally recording the classic hit.
The Worthington Windsurfing Regatta & Music Festival Board is excited to bring Casey Donahew to the stage as the headliner for Friday night's event. Be sure to mark your calendars for this year's festival, June 11-13. All of the musical performances are free to the public, so be sure to bring a chair, blanket or just have a seat in the grass and get ready for a good time!
A full line-up of all the exciting musical entertainment and events for this year's Worthington Windsurfing Regatta & Music Festival will be released in mid-March. Keep an eye out for the details!
