Today, as part of his radio tour to promote his first single, Casey stopped by to visit and play at two country music radio stations in his home state of Texas.
This afternoon Casey paid a visit to KSCS 96.3 FM in Arlington, TX and played a private show for contest winners and their guests. Casey was greeted at the station with a surprise visit by his family. Mom Debra, brother BC, and even his young cousins, the famous “Bow Girl” Lyndi and her brother Jaryn and mother Sara, came to the station to see Casey. Below are some tweets from those who were lucky enough to attend. Debra (Bybee D. James, also a recording artist) even accompanied Casey on two songs, “Small Town Saturday Night” and “Why I’m Feeling Blue!”
Here is the complete set list:
The Good Life
Why I’m Feeling Blue
Small Town Saturday Night
Let’s Don’t Call It a Night (the new single)
After he played “The Good Life,” Casey mentioned he had written the song with “Scooter.” That could be Scooter Carusoe, a Nashville-based songwriter who has written for Kenny Chesney among others. Time will tell.
