We had some fun with Casey James, Season 9 American Idol finalist and one of country music’s hottest new stars, earlier today. We played a little bit of trivia with our Twitter followers in order to announce that he will perform an acoustic set at our 3rd Annual CountryMusicIsLove Concert Benefiting City of Hope.
We Tweeted out the following hints to see if our followers could guess which artist we were announcing…
Hint #1: Our first performer is from the great state of TEXAS….
Hint #2: He’s in Texas RIGHT NOW….
Meanwhile Casey Tweeted: “The air conditioner isn’t working in my ride. I don’t think I’ve ever been sweating this much in January. Gotta love Texas weather!”
Hint #3: The artist’s debut single is in the top 60 at country radio…
Hint #4: This artist is extremely good acoustic…
Hint #5: We bet he’s wearing a blue shirt right now…hmmmm someone has a vacation beard… #NoShaveJanuary?! Meanwhile Casey Tweeted: No shave January 🙂 (with the photo shown below)
Later they exchanged these tweets about the event:
Casey is the first artist announced for this year’s show. You do not want to miss this! Not only will you have an incredible experience at the concert, but you’ll also know that the money you paid will be going to a very good cause.
100% of the proceeds will benefit City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading research, treatment and education centers for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. To date, CountryMusicIsLove has raised more than $10,000 for City of Hope.
