Casey James took the stage at 6:30 PM local time at the Alexandria Fairgrounds in Alexandria, Kentucky, for the fair’s first annual kick-off celebration. Casey and his band opened with the rousing You Need Some Texas then moved onto the equally energetic Bulletproof. Next was the frothy She’s Money followed by the touching I Lied. Then Casey introduced his new single, Let’s Don’t Call it a Night. Casey took it a little slower with the beautiful, romantic So Sweet. Then he brought out his blues guitar licks for a killer version of Drowning on Dry Land. He ramped it way up with an explosive take on Drive. Last was the rocking Done Made up My Mind. A knockout, powerful 40 minute set for the lucky folks in Kentucky!

Apparently, Casey doesn’t stress too much before going on stage, as one of the fans tweeted before the show: @kathwilliams2: Just got our picture taken with Casey James who was playing Frisbee before the concert tonight.
@spinnyjb: Show was great! @CaseyEJames was gracious as ever. The family enjoyed seeing Casey rock it out. 🙂
