Casey’s Upcoming Album Mentioned in Billboard

The Billboard Country Update this week took a look ahead at some of the anticipated albums of 2012 and highlighted Casey James as one of the acts ready to break out this year.

The article discussed the long, arduous process of going from signed to dropping an album, a process all to familiar to Casey James’ fans from American Idol who have watched and listened as Casey worked on creating and honing the material that would encompass his debut.

In addition to find and/or writing—the material, there are recording dates, photo shoots, radio promotion tours, hopefully a video shoot and maybe media training. The volume of decisions required just to get prepared are astronomical.  Then there’s always that matter of timing—a new artist can count on a chart climb of 30-40 weeks for a first hit, and labels try to release the albums right when an initial hit is peaking.

The timing seems to be early March, and Casey’s fans cannot wait for the day they can buy that first Casey James album.

Billboard noted that music fans’ options even within the country genre are varied, and included among the choices the “blues-flecked singer/song writer-guitar ist Casey James.”

Then Billboard spotlighted some of the albums due out this year, saying of Casey:

A singer/songwriter with a bluesy vocal edge, James frequently displayed guitar chops to match during a 2010 run on “American Idol.” His first single—“Let’s Don’t Call It a Night,” blending blue-eyed soul and atmospheric steel shadings—demonstrated he could fit in country better than one might have expected from the Fox show.

    Great to read about Casey James in such a beautiful compilation of highly ranked country artists news in a Billboard Newsletter!
    What a great way to highlight an artist like Casey James!! I always trusted my instincts about believing in this singer from the first time he auditioned on American Idol. My mom and I watched his audition and we’d phone each other to remark on how this singer belonged in a class of his own and that he was so overqualified to be judged, because it was obvious that he was the one that stood out so high above the rest of the participants, almost like this was a joke that he needed the approval of the judges. huh!
