Country-rocker Casey Thrasher is creating quite a buzz within the country music scene in Nashville and beyond. First discovered by Keith Urban, Thrasher was a finalist on seasons 13 and 14 of “American Idol” on FOX, when Taste of Country magazine reported that Keith Urban had “Found a younger version of himself in Salt Lake City”. After independently accruing over 1 million digital streams to date (mostly credited to his inspirational song, “Survivor”), the Tuscaloosa, AL native was named an artist member of the Country Music Association in 2019.
While serving in the United States Army, he was initially trained as a Signal Support Systems Specialist. Not satisfied, Thrasher auditioned for the Army School of Music in Norfolk, VA, where he was accepted and graduated at the top of his class, having been awarded credentials on 3 instruments. He was awarded an Army Bandsperson position in the Alabama Governor’s 151st Army Band, where he served as a piano player, guitarist, singer, and played trumpet during government and military ceremonies and parades. He received an honorable discharge.
You may have heard his song “Throwdown” on College Gameday pregame, halftime, and postgame shows where it has become a signature stamp of Saturdays in the southeastern United States. Thrasher is a fan of his hometown alma mater, the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Due to losing his father to suicide, he is a partner and advocate for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, where he performs at the “Out of the Darkness” community walks nationwide.
Casey Thrasher has opened for Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Maren Morris, Brett Eldredge, Riley Green, Kip Moore, Tyler Farr, High Valley, Randy Owen, Craig Campbell, Corey Smith and many more. His name will soon be a household name in Country Music.
