Casey James Takes Part in the Pajama Jam Benefit Concert in Roanoke, Virginia

Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Tonight, just before 8:45 , Casey James took the stage for a solo acoustic set at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, Virginia as part of this year’s 94.9 Star Country Pajama Jam Concert, a breast cancer benefit. In keeping with tradition, Casey donned sleepwear, decked out in pajama bottoms, a long sleeved hooded shirt and a robe. He walked out on stage, sat down and went on to play a dynamic eleven-song set.  During his set, he got even more comfortable and took off his ubiquitous boots.  And when he mentioned that he had nothing pink in his closet, some ladies in the audience offered him some pink accoutrements to add to his ensemble.

    oh, please…I hope someone got video of “You’ll Never Walk Away”. 🙂

  2. Boudica says:

    I am guessing I am over you is a cover, who does the original?

    Love the Way You Miss Me is a bit long for a title.

  3. Inconnu says:

    What a touching and moving photo! … and how beautiful everyone is!
    It must have been so special to be there and to be part of this.

  4. Malu says:

    Thank you so much for the videos! and cute photo! 🙂
    I’m glad he looks healthier 😀

  5. CrazyCEJFan- Tracy says:

    Boudica-If you like country music, check Keith Whitley out of You tube-you won’t be sorry you took the time! He passed away years ago. Be sure to listen to “Don’t Close Your Eyes” and “When You Say Nothing at All”. I would love to hear Casey cover both of these-beautiful songs!

    • karen says:

      i think i know that song… “when you say nothing at all” Allison Krauss sung it too. im gonna check it out on youtube.. thanks

  6. lisa says:

    Tracy you are so right Casey could do these songs so beautifully.I always liked Keith Whitleys
    music.glad to see Casey looking so healthy……….

  7. Beth W says:

    Last night was a very special night in Roanoke. I was so proud to be a Casey fan! He spoke very openly about how cancer has affected his family. It was evident that he had chosen songs to perform that were meaningful for the event-The Good Life for survivors, Hold On for those who are still battling……..Casey’s sweet personality and kind heart really showed in his performance. He was the perfect person for this event……..and he really looked cute in his pajamas!

    • Jeanette says:

      Beth, you have said it so well. Casey is the best.

    • Carman (coolcjfan) says:

      This is such a treat to read, thanks for sharing with us!

      • daydreaminmeme says:

        I’m tryin to upload my pics to PB right now & will have a recap posted somewhere tomorrow, but I gotta tell y’all…it was a MAGICAL evening! When Casey played his single, the ENTIRE room erupted in hoots & hollahs & applause…there weren’t many dry eyes durin “Hold On” & by the time he finished “Poke Salad Annie”, they were ALL on their feet cheerin for him!!! (i really hope someone got video of the very last thing Casey did before leaving the stage!)

  8. Vet says:

    So dang awesome! And to think, God loves him way more than we can even imagine! May He continue to bless you our blue eyed wonder, love you dearly!

  9. norlela says:

    casey is the cure!

    • Daydreaminmeme says:

      Y’know, this is the truth!!! I haven’t had ANY arm pain (from the mastectomy) since casey gave me that big bear hug!!! I do believe he cured me!!! ❤

  10. Joan Carey says:

    Sounds like everyone had a great time. Barbara, I am dying to hear what he did before left the stage.

  11. Laura Patterson says:

    Holy Moly!!! Thank you so much @gailey for your AMAZING videos, esp. Never Walk Away!!!! Could Casey sound or look any better – I don’t think so!!! Seeing him in a robe and pj’s has just about sent me over the edge! 🙂 Casey’s exit was hysterical and ever so adorable – what a great way to start the day!!! 🙂

  12. Gail V. says:

    Another great show! Casey is very entertaining with just the guitar. The little “bootie shake” there at the end was awesome! He is showing his sense of humor again! 🙂 Love it!

  13. Karen says:

    That was so cute what Casey did at the end of the show! 😀 He sounded great and it looks like the whole crowd loved him – but what else could they do?!

  15. Joanie says:

    Thank you Darlene for the photos and videos. I was waiting inline with you for Casey’s pic and autograph at the end of the show. It was such a great night. I still haven’t calmed down, although when I finally got to meet Casey, I could say a word. Speachless! My friends could believe because I talk about how good he is all the time. He is so sweet!!

  16. Drew J says:

    Thank you thank you thank you to the gals who got the videos and photos up. You made a lot of us happy… or ecstatic. Who says Casey’s stiff as a rod? That lil wiggle tells me he ain’t half a bad dancer 😀 And that meet-up with Barb is sweet.
