Casey James Plays the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville to Support “Musicians On Call”

Shortly after 8 tonight, Casey took the stage at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville as part of the Musicians On Call 4th Anniversary Concert, sponsored by 97.9 WSIX Nashville.  Musicians on Call (MOC) is a program in which musicians volunteer to perform for hospital patients to soothe them in their time of need.  Before he began his set, Casey lauded the MOC program, saying that being able to move people with music is what he got into music for.

Casey announced that all of the songs on his album have been recorded except one.  Debra, Casey’s mom, was in the audience and Casey joked that he was wearing his favorite shirt, but his mom doesn’t like it because it’s all torn up.  The first three songs Casey sung were:  “The Good Life,” his single, “Let’s Don’t Call It a Night,” and the Matt Powell cover “Everybody Thinks That You’re Still Mine.”  Then, Casey made some news when he announced that his as-yet-untitled song (which he said was called either “Love the Way You Miss Me” or “Miss Me When I’m Gone”) would be on his album!  “Shine Your Shoes” was next.  Casey then followed with “Undone”, the Hal Ketchum cover “Small Town Saturday Night” & ended with fingers flying on “Drive.”

      Well said, Renee!!! After a busy CMA awards week of interviews and parties, seeing Casey playing acoustic guitar with his mom in the audience, just brings it home. So happy for them both!

    Very nice write-up about last night’s concert—and great photos! So happy Casey and his mom were able to spend some time together!! Must be difficult for such a close family to be apart so much…. Just want them to know that we fans recognize that and are so appreciative of having Casey and his music be a part of our lives!
