From AP via Yahoo! News: Singer Casey James performs at the Academy of Country Music Concerts at Fremont Street Experience, Friday, April 1, 2011, in downtown Las Vegas:
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.
