This week brought some great news. Casey shooting his first video, for his debut Let’s Don’t Call it a Night, Casey finally quieting the east coast fans who’ve waiting to see him again, and news that his single was about to break into the top 40. So let’s recap this busy week.
On Monday radio station KKGO 105.1 FM announced that Casey and fellow BNA artist and American Idol alum Kellie Pickler will be taking part in a special unplugged performance at Camp Pendleton. Billed as “A Concert that Cares,” this special show is co-sponsored by radio station Go Country 105 and Operation Gratitude. Later that night Casey walked the red carpet at thte ACM Honors and was interviewed by country media. In one of those interviews, Casey announced that he was shooting his first solo music video this week.
On Tuesday the Blues Historian blog wrote about Casey, sharing a recent video of Casey performing Too Sweet for Me. Tuesdays are the days the the record charts come out and the news was great for Casey whose single had five new adds and was in the Top 50 on the mediabase Country charts and #49 with a bullet on Billboard.
Thursday was a great day for music. Casey played two different shows in Minneapolis showcase his versatility and range. First, he played a seven-song solo acoustic set at radio station KEEY’s Roadhouse lounge before a group of lucky contest winners. Then later than night, he played a fourteen-song electric, full band concert at Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar & Grill.”
On Friday came news that Casey would be heading out East, making his first appearance to that area for what seemed like an eternity to his east coast fans. Casey will be playing at The Downtown in New Jersey on October 13 at a concert presented by radio station WKMK 106.3 FM, Thunder 106.
Music Row gave us a look into the future with their announcement that LDCIAN was “On Deck – Soon to be Charting” meaning its upwards trajectory is continuing. In fact, the single has crossed its first milestone, having passed 1 million audience impressions. Great news for all, especially those who live in radio markets where Casey’s single hasn’t been played yet.
And late Friday, Casey tweeted some new information: that his music video has been shot and that it could be shown very soon and that Natalie Hemby (who among other credits is the co-writer of Miranda Lambert’s “White Liar”) was the co-writer of the song “Never Walk Away.” In a recent interview, Hemby said of her recent success, “I think a lot of people think this all happened for me overnight, but I’ve been doing this for 13 years.” Sounds reminiscent of Casey’s own story.
