On November 25 , we posted a poll asking Casey’s fans to select their top five favorites of the original songs Casey has performed this year. Here are the results.
Coming in at number 1, is a song that, yesterday at his concert in Springfield, MO, Casey finally definitively announced the title to— “Miss Me When I’m Gone”. Introducing the piece, Casey said he wrote the ballad from the perspective of someone who is away touring a lot, and his intent was to express appreciation for how someone “can make it easier on you by the way they treat you when you’re (away).” The tune garnered 13% of the votes!
“So Sweet” was no slacker, though. It finished second with 11% of the tally. One of Casey’s favorites, “Drive,” took the third position (9%). And tying for fourth with 8% of fans’ selections were “Done Made Up My Mind” and “The Good Life.” Finally, the beautiful “Why I’m Feeling Blue” earned a fifth place ranking, chosen just under 8% of the time.
This is the third time in a row that “So Sweet” and “Done Made Up My Mind” have made it into the top five, and the second time “Why I’m Feeling Blue” has made it into this category. It will be interesting to see if they’ll make it on the album. Casey has announced that “Miss Me When I’m Gone,” “Drive” and “The Good Life” will be on the album. Also, yesterday at the Springfield venue, Casey told the audience that he had mastered his CD on Wednesday and that it is completely done. Woohoo!
