Casey James took the stage at the ACM Concert Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas tonight at 7:00 PM local time.  Casey opened with the rockabilly-inspired Bulletproof, then sang the tender Till My Guitar, followed by the sultry Let’s Don’t Call it a Night.  He then went full throttle for the last two  numbers, the propulsive Drive and the rockin’ Done Made Up My Mind.

REVIEW: CMT.com reviewed all the performances from the Fremont Street Experience and here is what they had to say about Casey:

Naturally, the fans were feeling like they hit the jackpot in Las Vegas, too, following nearly six hours of live country music from the likes of Lee Brice, Chris Young and newcomers Brett Eldredge, Casey James and Sarah Darling, all presented by the Academy of Country Music.

…James and Darling launched the night with smaller crowds, shorter sets and distinct potential.

James, a former American Idol contestant, stayed away from boring covers, instead delivering a surprisingly soulful set of fresh material, enhanced by a little growl in his voice.

    That AP picture of Casey is amazing. I think no matter how many shots he has taken of him during his sure to be long career, that pic will stand as a classic. He sounded great too from the clips I’ve heard. You can hear the band and him coming together more and more each performance.
