Local singer-songwriter Casey Kearney is celebrating the October release of her first full-length original album. The 11-song album is titled by the song “More to the Story” which was written about small town living and gossip.
For those who don’t know, Kearney is a Florida-native country singer/songwriter and the founder and president of the nonprofit, “Bands of 30A.”
She wrote and recorded the project, maintained her regular gig schedule, while raising and homeschooling her three children who are active in the junior rodeo circuit.
“This project is extra close to my heart because it took so long to complete and was such a roller coaster to finally get it here,” said Kearney. “Some of the songs are my personal stories.”
According to Kearney, the song “Make This Work” is one of her favorites as she and her husband celebrate 20 years of marriage this year. Others songs like “Waffle House” and “Bless Your Heart” are stories of her friends and family.
“The lyrics in “Little Words” are actual quotes from my Nana who passed away a few years ago, said Kearney. “Along with other lines I have heard my whole life that I want to pass to my children.”
In celebration of the release of “More to the Story,” Kearney is playing a special weekend tour in three locations across Northwest Florida.
The Martin McDaniel Band will be coming from Nashville, Tennessee to join Kearney and perform at Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin on September 10. They will then perform at 3rd Planet Brewery in Niceville, Florida, on September 11, and finally Papa Joe’s in Panama City Beach, Florida, on September 12.
Presale for the physical copies of “More to the Story” is open now and the album will be available digitally on all streaming outlets October 2, 2020.
