ALL NIGHT PARTY covers plenty of ground, touching on universal themes like true love, heartbreak, hard work, and partying hard when the work week is through. In a nod to his love of the cowboy life, Casey recorded “That’s Why We Ride” and “What Cowboys Do,” which are sure to become favorites among the rodeo circuit as well as riders everywhere. He taps into the “Pancho And Lefty” vein on “Josie Escalido,” a mariachi-infused tale about star-crossed lovers mixed up with outlaws, angels, and the law. Casey also gives a shout-out to a big portion of his fan base with “College Years,” a fun song co-written by Kip Moore. Of course no Donahew album would ever be complete without a nod to the wacky and fun White Trash set, so in the vein of his smash hits “Double Wide Dream,” and “White Trash Story,” he revisits that world on “White Trash Bay,” a thunderous tune celebrating a driftwood bar full of salty characters.
With thirteen years of touring under his belt playing every kind of venue under the sun, “Country Song,” is a fitting autobiographical nod to Donahew’s high energy shows, his life on the road, and his devotion to the fans who follow him zealously and sing back every word to every song, night after night. The gamut of material ALL NIGHT PARTY is evidence of Casey’s desire to keep changing and growing as an artist, to give his fans the best he has each and every time out.
“I try and do a little bit of everything and cover a lot of ground on every album,” admits Donahew of his approach to making a new record. “One thing that is different about this record is that it has a cheerful feel to it and a more positive vibe to it. I’m in a really good frame of mind and feel like I’m in a good place in my life. I think that really shines through in this record a little for sure this time around. I’m very excited about it and I can’t wait for the fans to hear it!”
