I’d say that poor Casey must be exhausted, what with rehearsals, meeting with radio people, working on his record, and playing at various Country Radio Seminar (CRS) events — but anyone who’s ever seen him play knows that he is in pure bliss on stage. So I will instead say that I’m happy to report that Casey is performing tonight at a Sony party on the General Jackson Showboat in Nashville.
Here’s a video of Casey performing a new song called “Drive” from the Sony Boat Party, courtesy of CatCountry981

One of the attendees, Tony Thomas of KMPS radio in Seattle, Washington, was nice enough to tweet a picture of Casey singing and playing his new song tonight:
Tony later tweeted (in response to my question if he had any other photos): “I think I had a pic of Casey tonight…sorry it wasn’t closer. He both sang & played great, + was friendly & fun afterwards.”
This was also tweeted, on 3/4 by 925XTU: Shelly snapped a photo of Casey James on the Sony Music Nashville river boat cruise last night on the Cumberland…
Thank you JM_Taylor for finding this pic of Casey of SiriusXM The Highway Facebook
CountryAirCheck.com had this to say about Casey’s performance at the party: “Former American Idol finalist Casey James was next, showing off strong guitar licks on an up-tempo number called ‘Drive.'”
On Twitter, The Highway New Country satellite radio DJ Al Skop almost found himself the object of some angry fans responses after he originally tweeted, during Casey’s number:
Wow, Casey James even sounds like Bucky Covington.
But almost immediately, he followed up that tweet with:
Retract last tweet. This guy can PLAY!
And just that quickly, Casey won over another new fan
