As Casey James’ fans know, Casey has been busy working with a number of very talented and very experience songwriters over the past few months, putting together dozens of songs for possible inclusion on his debut album for BNA Records. Fans have heard the names of some writing collaborators, but thus far have only been able to speculate which collaborations have led to which of Casey’s new songs. But some of the specifics are starting to come out.
The Casey James Blog learned last month that one of his new songs, the rockin’/bluesy “Done Made up My Mind” with which Casey has been closing out his recent sets, was co-written by Casey James and hit makers Tony Martin and Mark Nesler. Martin and Nesler are two-thirds of the writing talent behind Keith Urban’s latest no. 1, “You Look Good in My Shirt” and the title song for the movie “Country Strong.” Martin and Nesler also co-penned Tim McGraw’s “Just to See You Smile,” ranked by Billboard as the Number One country single of 1998.
Fans may already be aware that the rockabilly-influenced song “Bulletproof” was co-written with Delbert McClinton.
MJsBigBlog reported today (via contributor Windmills) that “Til My Guitar” was cowritten with Gary T. Nicholson, and John Randall. The two also cowrote Reba McIntyre’s single, “When Love Gets A Hold Of You” and Randall has written for Kenny Chesney and Little Big Town, among others. Read the entire article here.
