Casey's Story
Casey Beathard graduated in 1984 from Oakton High School, Vienna, Virginia, where he was a football star. He moved to Nashville to become a recording artist. After all, even though he played football at Elon (NC) University, music had always been his passion. 
“Since I was 8 or 9 years old, I’ve loved music,” he said, “and it wouldn’t go away. My mom was very influential in my music. She played the piano and sang at Christmas and around the house, her side of the family would get together and we’d sing.”

After college he took a job as a landscaper, but hoped there was more out there for him. At night he would play his songs at different clubs, but didn’t realize “I could make a living at that.” He was soon told he needed to move to Nashville to pursue a career in country music. “When my lease was up, I loaded everything up and came here, I had never been here before.” His first two jobs when he arrived set the course for his future success. While working at the Country Music Hall of Fame Casey says that “One of
them tuned me onto a job at the Bluebird. I was around the history and great songwriters every day.” 

He worked in the kitchen and as a bar-back at the Bluebird, but was allowed to sing one night when there was an opening. 
“I learned a lot that helped me with my skills as a writer and singer,” Casey said. 

Singing at the Bluebird led to singing around town and doing $40 demos for recordings. He was allowed to use these demos to pitch himself and eventually was signed to Capitol Records.

Casey is the son of respected football executive Bobby Beathard, and the father of four children.  Beathard's son, C. J. Beathard, was the starting quarterback at the University of Iowa. Another son, Tucker Beathard, is signed to Dot Records as a recording artist.



Casey's Songs
Casey is one the hottest songwriters in country music right now with hit after hit with some of the most
successful artists in the business.

After starting to concentrate more on his songwriting, he had the title cut onKenny Chesney’s album, “I Will Stand” and then a cut called “Right Where I Need To Be” on Gary Allan’s album, a big hit for Allan in 1999. “I decided since I had a wife and family, I’d be a better husband and dad if I stayed off the road,” he explained. Some of his favorite cuts are Trace Adkins’ “Just Fishing” and
Travis Tritt’s “I See Me”. Casey says he writes about his family and that means a lot to him.

Huge hits since then have been “Like Jesus Does” & “Homeboy” by Eric ChurchGeorge Strait’s “The Breath You Take”, Aaron Tippin’s “Where the Stars & Stripes & Eagles Fly”, Kenny Chesney’s “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem”, and a string of #1’s that include “Come Back Song”, “Find Out Who Your Friends Are”, “Don’t Blink”, “Cleaning This Gun”, “Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo” and “The Boys of Fall”.

Casey is a two-time winner of Broadcast Music Inc’s Songwriter of the Year for 2004 and 2008.
