I’ve had a chance over the past four months to become somewhat of an encyclopedia of all things Casey James. Like most of you, I first discovered Casey on American Idol, followed his progress on the show and, as time went on, learned about the path he had taken that lead him to try out in the first place. Casey is not an overnight success, thrust into stardom prematurely thanks to a reality TV show. He is a professional musician who has toiled relentlessly to improve his craft for most of his life. He has had major obstacles set in his way and he has fought through them. I truly believe his is a story worth telling, regardless of how successful he is in the future. Because his is the story of grit and determination, of unflinching faith in yourself and a single-minded focus on achieving one’s dream.
The link below will take you to a brief, unofficial biography of Casey James. It is culled from my conversations with his friends and family as well as the interviews he has given over the past year. It is not the whole story, but will help put in perspective what he has gone through to get to this point in his life and may show where he is likely to go from here.
