Casey Donahew

Over the last 18 years, Casey Donahew has risen from a favorite on the local Texas music scene, racking up 21 #1 singles, to a nationally hot touring act who consistently sells out venues all across the country. For Casey it has always been about the song, whether he was singing about colorful, hilarious characters that might live down the street from you or come to Thanksgiving dinner every year, or the painful devastation of something as serious as addiction. Fans flock to his shows to revel in the zany, wacky tales of pot-selling grannies and shotgun-toting girls whose bras don’t fit, along with the more somber stories of heartbreak, failure and redemption that Donahew weaves so well. Drawing from real life and its roller coaster highs and lows has provided him with plenty of rich material over the last decade and a half, and resulted in eight wildly successful albums and 19 chart-topping singles. For Donahew, who was largely inspired by Garth Brooks and his mammoth live show and ability to whip a crowd into a frenzy onstage, the songs were always the main thing – and still are to this day. Maybe that’s why they have continued to be fan favorites for a decade and a half and counting.

Josh Meloy

Josh Meloy

Friday, August 5 - 7:30 pm

Oklahoma native, Josh Meloy recently released his new record “Oklahoma” in May of 2020. The record consists of a collection of songs written over the past 5 years. Meloy considers this his “best and most honest work to date”. Meloy recorded and produced the album at home giving it an undeniably authentic sound. Meloy didn’t plan on playing music in the beginning. In a family with strong ties to music, he chose sports. It wasn’t until attending Oklahoma State University at the age of 19 that he first picked up a guitar. Meloy, now 26, has since matured as a musician and songwriter while earning a strong fan base touring the Oklahoma/Texas region.

Amanda Stewart

Amanda Stewart

Saturday, August 6 - 5:30 pm

Bozeman-based singer-songwriter Amanda Stewart has already been sharing her songs in bars, coffee shops, theaters, and auditoriums for the past 15+ years, but her roots run even deeper than that. Being born to the free-spirited seaports of the Olympic Peninsula, but raised by the rugged individualism of ranch life in Northwestern Montana, she discovered the power of music as a universal language at an early age. From vivid memories of County Fair karaoke contests with mom and belting out classic 70s ballads while riding shotgun in dad’s Silverado, to sharing the stage and studio with some of today’s top artists, her debut album represents the culmination of a passion spanning over 30 years.
