Public News (Houston) - - MUSIC NEWS & NOTES -

Nashville, TN – Lone Star son and Texas na­tive, Casey Don­a­hew, is us­ing his live show as a means to help as­sist in re­lief to vic­tims of Hur­ri­cane Har­vey. La­beled as one of our na­tion’s worst dis­as­ters and the most sig­nif­i­cant storm to ever hit the U.S .coast, Hur­ri­cane Har­vey has left a wake of de­struc­tion in its his­tor­i­cally large path. Don­a­hew and his wife Melinda sprang into ac­tion this week upon see­ing the first video and hear­ing news re­ports of the dam­age caused by the storm know­ing that they had to do some­thing to help. Hear Casey’s own words here. “Tex­ans are proud peo­ple, and we help our own, but we are not too proud to ask oth­ers for help when we need it. That’s why I’m ask­ing my fans and anyone else who wants to donate to please do so. We have a large cargo trailer that we are pulling to our shows this week and we are ask­ing peo­ple to help us fill it up with items like; di­a­pers, baby wipes, baby for­mula, body soaps, de­odor­ant, and hy­giene packs. These are sug­ges­tions, we are not going to turn away any­thing non­per­ish­able that anyone wants to donate,” says Don­a­hew. Casey will be col­lect­ing at his shows this week in the fol­low­ing mar­kets: Au­gust 30 – Dal­las, TX – The Rus­tic (The Rus­tic is also giv­ing a $10 ticket dis­count for anyone who do­nates at least 2 items) Au­gust 31 – Clin­ton, AR – Na­tional Cham­pi­onship Chuck Wagon Races Septem­ber 1 – Lub­bock, TX – Charley B’s Septem­ber 2 – Bel­ton, TX – Cen­tral Texas State Fair
