Casey has had a busy 2 weeks, what with all the interviews during CMA week, followed by 5 shows in 5 cities in 5 days, and yet he’s been tweeting up a storm. I know I’m not the only one loving this. And isn’t it great to see his number of Twitter followers growing and growing, and all the new Twitter names popping up tweeting him? I haven’t been so happy since “pancakes to eat, bunnies to look at”. There were some great questions asked. So, just what did we learn about Casey this past week? Well…
He’s open to pitching his songs to other artists.
Billy Cole’s birthday is November 16th.
Sometimes his fingers and forearms actually cramp up while he’s playing!
There will be songs on the CD that we haven’t heard.
His favorite Amos Lee song is “Colors” and he thinks
there’s a good chance they will write together.
If you’re a new blues fan and you’re not sure what to listen to,
he suggests you start with Freddy King.
Thinks you’ll love it and that you’ll hear some familiar licks.
He has a few favorite singers, but he’s not spillin’ it. He’s keeping it to himself.
He loves Etta James.
The doggies are awesome.
The Akron show will definitely be rescheduled.
He would love to play the Phillipines.
When he has a headache (and I’m guessing sleep deprived, and possibly hungry) he just may get off a plane that he’s supposed to stay on and then walk around looking for the gate he just walked out of.
He doesn’t have a shirt for each day of the year (ha! yeah, we knew this).
He doesn’t like beets.
He needs some ChiTown.
The CD will come out in February 2012 but he’s still working on an Album Title. (This fan’s choice is “The Other Casey James”… I kid, I kid.)
He likes Sushi, edamame, miso soup and veggie gyoza. And he loves wasabi.
Amos Lee – Colors
Freddie King – Have You Every Loved A Woman
Etta James – I’d Rather Go Blind
