In our news and media mentions this week, Canadian country radio station CJKC 103 added the single “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” to their playlist this week. Also, Casey finally took the plunge, and purchased a new, black 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 R/T. He is sure to enjoy his new wheels, but there was a small glitch, and Casey informed fans by tweeting “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!” To view all current news and media mentions of Casey, click media mentions.

Thanks to Ana Lucia Perfoncio @anaperfoncio for creating this YouTube video of Casey’s journey through American Idol. All performances were compiled into one, and certainly worth watching. To view, click “Casey James – All your songs on American Idol”.

Bob Kingsley, who hosts the weekly Bob Kingsley Country Top 40, posted this video of Casey on Facebook and Tweeted it.   The video was shot last year, but just posted and uploaded to YouTube today (with the description: “Casey James gives a shout-out to CT40 fans”).  So don’t expect that the “February” date is still accurate.  But it sure was great of Bob Kingsley to share this with his many followers!

It’s back to work for Casey James, and fans are already pumped with excitement. 2012 has begun, and is off to a rapid start as Casey’s schedule fills up with many preparations including travels across the nation to perform and meet with fans. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

    I hope Casey’s touring band includes Billy Nobel – sure would miss him if he wasn’t part of it.

    Please keep us all informed on how and when we can vote to keep Casey in the news and his songs played. I agree with Neet, it’s difficult to find no matter how you search. That you for all your hard work, love the info you give out.
