The Daybreaks In-Studio Interview [audio]


Casey got the chance to sit down for the first time with the indie-pop band The Daybreaks! The Daybreaks have a lot to celebrate right now. Not only are the holidays coming up, but they are also featured in Season’s Greetings from Nashville with Musician’s Corner! It’s a holiday compilation and is out now, with The Daybreaks covering “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” The album is available at Musician’s Corner and Grimey’s. They will be playing at City Winery on December 4th at 8 pm with other artists on the compilation.

The Daybreaks also recently released a new album, The Idea of You. They performed an acoustic version of one of the tracks off the album, “Here In Between.”

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
