Conversations with Missy: Casey Derhak

by Missy Wolf / 3071 days ago / Comments

Imagine being great at baseball and music and having to choose just one. Could you choose between two things you are passionate about? That is exactly what Casey Derhak had to do. His choice was music.

Derhak has an interesting beginning. Being born at an airforce base intrigued me. I wanted to know more. Was he a military brat? Did he have to move a lot? The answer he gave me is not one I expected and frankly was very cool. Listen to our conversation to hear him explain it all.

Coming from a family of talent, it seemed a fitting choice that Derhak pursued music. Listen as he explains his families' influence on him and the reasons he chose music over baseball. Derhak claims he only wanted to do two things in life, play baseball and make music. Watching his friends in the minor leagues, Derhak was able to see that he would not be in complete control of his career if he chose baseball. We spoke about his reasons, but after watching his videos I am convinced music, hands down had to be his choice.

Derhak's debut EP Deep South Sweet Sound captures his unique sound and will leave a lasting impression on you that will have you wanting more. Lucky for fans he is only gaining momentum. His latest single "Back Beat" is already causing a buzz in the music world. 

Go check him out now. Follow him on social media. Send him a shout out and download his latest tunes. If you truly appreciate music, you will love what he brings to the table. ~Missy

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
