Casey was interviewed by two country radio stations today in advance of tonight’s concert in Grand Rapids, MI. In a videotaped interview with “Party Paul” of Thunder 94.5, Casey was asked about getting to play his own music instead of just covers, like he did on American Idol, and the interviewer mentioned, speaking of the show, that Casey had been their favorite last year. He also told Casey that his boss had seen Casey jamming at the Country Radio Seminar recently with a number of great musician and he asked Casey to mention some of the people he’s had the chance to play with and Casey said “Sarah Evans, Tim (McGraw) and Faith (Hill) and Alabama.” Makes you wonder if a year ago he would have expected to say that!
When asked the $64,000 question — when will his CD come out — Casey again avoided stating a specific release date for his album, but he said there are some teasers of what might appear on the CD on the www.caseyejames.com website as well as what he has been playing on stage during the tour. He also offered that everyone on the tour is so nice and kind and awesome. Oh, and he mentioned the catering. It’s a great interview, enjoy!

Casey was also interviewed by B93.7 FM over the air and you can listen to the podcast of that interview here. There were no big reveals in this audio interview, but it is a fun one nevertheless. In it, Casey says that he doesn’t know when his single will drop and he thought it was funny that the top tweet for him today was comparing him to Will Farrell in a recent SNL skit.
