Casey Cochran picked up a guitar five years ago and hasn’t put it down. He was finished with football, the game he loved, the game that loved and hurt him in return. He needed to do something with his time.
“More than that,” Cochran said. “I needed something holistic, something good for my mind. Something to bring me back from where I was, which wasn’t a good place. I was going through a lot of depression.”
Five years later, “Take It Slow,” his first album released last week, is the fruit of that long process. A former mullet-wearing quarterback, a shipwright on the Mayflower II, fighting back from hard times to find happiness. Of course, it’s a country-bent album. And yes, Casey Cochran is really good.
