Casey signed onto Twitter tonight just before midnight Pacific time and asked “Anybody up?” He then tweeted, “I’m good. Just been reading some of yalls tweets. Thought I would drop by and talk for a bit. So what’s new?” With that the first Casey James Twitter Party of 2011 was underway. It ran for over an hour, with dozens of questions and answers from how his dogs were doing to the fact that “Hold On” was written in part for the people of Japan.
Casey marveled in how far he has come from a near- Luddite to the tech savvy, electronics-wielding guy he now is, “Btw!How high-tech am I!? Skyping and tweeting and whatnot.Two years ago I didn’t have Internet or a fancy phone. My how times have changed:)”
He answered a few questions about the status of his upcoming CD. “I’ve written about 60 new songs in the last few months.Trying to whittle it down now.Some are better than others….:)” He added, to another fan who told him how “awesome” he was on American Idol and how great it was to finally hear from him, “hey thanks! Yeah I been out of touch lately. Just slamming myself trying to make an awesome cd for y’all.It’s gonna be gooood. :)”
Answering a fan’s question about when the much-anticipated CD will finally be released, Casey gave a great, and true, answer: “asap. It doesn’t take long at all to make a bad cd….;)”
