Casey James will take the stage tomorrow night at the Verizon Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas, at approximately 7:30 CT. For some, this is a concert they’ve been waiting a year for, since they first became fans of then-American Idol contestant Casey James. For others, this will be their first look at the tall Texan with the large array of guitars.

He will be joined onstage by three other seasoned studio and touring musicians, David LaBruyere on bass, Nir Z on drums, and Billy Nobel on keyboards, the first two of whom have played with John Mayer in the past. They will play approximately five songs, as he did during the Sony After-party on Tuesday, most, if not all, will be new songs. There will be someone killing it on the guitar.
