Casey James is growing accustomed to boarding a plane and “flying the friendly skies.” This week was no exception. Traveling 3 states, and performing twice as many shows, Casey is reaching more and more fans.
During these several performances, Casey managed to squeak out some information concerning his highly anticipated CD scheduled to be released in February. He has disclosed that the following have made the final cut: “Drive”, “Miss Me When I’m Gone”, and “The Good Life”. Casey explained that there will be four brand NEW tunes. In addition, Casey has also revealed that the album will be composed of all original songs, and no covers. The album is expected to contain 10 songs total. Assuming his first single “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” is included, two mystery songs will keep fans guessing.
First thing Monday, as anticipated, a “Behind The Scenes” making of the “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” music video had everyone buzzing. Casey talks from the make-up chair, and explains his feelings towards the production of his first music video. A must see! Watch!
Monday and Tuesday were spent in North Carolina participating in the Kat Country and Kiss Country sponsored events benefiting St. Jude and Mission Children’s hospital. The shows were performed in an interesting round table type setting where the artists took turns playing one tune each. Casey explained his favorite part of visiting St. Jude hospital was walking away with the “sense of hope” that he gained from spending time with the children.

The remainder of the week, Casey performed gig after gig after gig. Wednesday in Chattanooga, Casey created a crowd screamer during his performance at the High Noon Saloon in Chattanooga, TN.

The following day, Casey flew to Tampa, FL and performed a brief acoustic set at 103.5. To view photos/videos/recorded live stream, click here.
Just a couple of hours away, Casey performed Thursday night at the Dixie Roadhouse in Cape Coral, FL.
