Casey James Playing at the WKLB Concert at Ned Devine’s in Boston

Tonight Casey James played a 13-song solo acoustic set at Ned Devine’s Irish Pub in Boston, MA, as part of radio station WKLB, Country 102.5’s New Artist Spotlight.

When he started, Casey mentioned that he’d been in the studio earlier this week and that one of the songs he recorded was the first one he’d be playing tonight, “Drive.” He introduced his new officially “Untitled” song by discussing how after he played it at Camp Pendleton he realized how much that song could mean especially to those who faced having to be separated from their loved ones in the military. After that song he discussed his flight from NY and then wondered aloud what he should play next and someone in the audience called out “So Sweet.”

He played a song that he hasn’t played this year, the Matt Powell cover “$50 and a Flask of Crown,” then he followed it up with TCJB’s favorite cover “Polk Salad Annie.” Then he introduced “Shine Your Shoes” by mentioning that his was one of the rare instances as a songwriter where the music and lyrics came together at the same time. Next was “I’m Over You,” the Keith Whitley cover followed by “So High,” by Tab Benoit, a song he’d done in 2009 at the Ranch in Las Colinas (check it out HERE).

Casey then mentioned that the music video for his first single had just premiered before launching into “Let’s Don’t Call it a Night.” Then Casey segued into a twangy hoedown number before going into “The Good Life.”

Casey then asked the crowd to listen to the words as he launched into a tender, beautiful and very quiet version of “Never Walk Away.” He then switched it back up with the Fleetwood Mac cover “Oh Well.”

Thanks to @aintitbeautiful who called in from the show, we have audio of Casey’s performance.

    Love that jacket! Come to colorado, Casey! I like “when I’m gone” for the untitled song. Thanks as always for the coverage of all things Casey!

  2. Boudica says:

    Very interesting setlist. Does it really have to be called Miss me when I am gone, that title seems a bit long.

  3. Gail V. says:

    Another great show! Thanks for the videos and pic’s they all are wonderful. The title of the missing song above is “Jail House Blues” it is an old bluegrass song. It was written by Jay Don Johnson and recorded by several artists over the years!

  4. I finally found another version of the “twangy hoe-down number” that Casey “segued into.”
    Bluegrass will never be the same for me… Jailhouse Blues!

    OMG Casey did a bluegrass number! I love it. I really hope that Casey can reschedule his gig in NJ so I can see him live.

  6. Katy says:

    Hope “So High” can be on the album. Watched it on video yesterday with the band and loved it!

  7. Laura Patterson says:

    After listening to all these videos and thoroughly enjoying each and every song Casey performed, I REALLY hope Casey does an acoustic album. I find his acoustic performances to be so powerful and personal, like a real connection is being made. I love electric stuff too, being a rocker most of my life, but I find Casey’s opened up my world to country music and I’m so thankful for that. I wonder if Casey ever gets tired of hearing people say they love his work – I hope not!! Casey – I love your guitar playing and your singing so very much – Big Thank You!!! 🙂
