Excerpt from the Next Casey James Interview

My second interview with Casey James was done when he was back home in Texas visiting his family late last month.  The interview was short and will be continued, so I have yet to write it up. But in honor of Thanksgiving, I thought I’d share this small part as it deals with family.

When Casey returned home for a visit after just a few weeks in Nashville, some people were surprised that he would interrupt work on his upcoming record just to see his family, including his ailing grandfather. I asked Casey about that and he commented how strange it was for someone to say to him, “it’s good that you are going back to spend the time.”

As he told me, “I thought, if there comes a time where my family isn’t number one, and isn’t the most important thing, then I’m in a bad place. Then I’ve got troubles.”

Casey is clear about his priorities.  “To me, life in general is about family and friends and making a difference in a positive way in the people’s lives around you and doing what you can to make the world a better place. If you do that then I feel like you’ve lived a successful life, regardless of how much money you made or how many people know your name. It’s not about that, it’s about those things. And that’s a big piece of why I am who I am.”

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and get to spend it with those you love.

    His priorities are why I am one of his biggest fans. Love that he is not a fame & fortune seeker. Thanks for the teaser, Shari… 😉

    I recently told Debra on twitter that — its about so much more than just the music for me, 10 months into being a fan, & a supporter when it comes to this family. This proves my point, and no doubt they’ll prove it again and again. Thank you!

    Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
