Casey James Talks about His Upcoming Grand Ole Opry Debut

Casey James will step foot on the stage of the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on January 27, 2012, for his Grand Ole Opry debut.  This news has captivated Casey’s fans who have made plans to come from all around the country just to be there for this special occasion.

The Casey James Blog had a chance to ask Casey a few questions about his upcoming Opry debut and find out if he knew just how important an event this was for his fans, over 50 of whom are expected to be there cheering him on.

TCJB: How did you feel when you heard you’d be making your debut – before your first record even came out?

Casey:  I was excited! I am very happy and proud to have been asked. At the same time I have to say that I am a little sad that my Paw Paw isn’t around to be there.

TCJB: Did you know that dozens and dozens of fans are making a special pilgrimage just to be there for your debut? What does it mean to have such loyal, dedicated fans who want to be there to share in all your big moments?

Casey: Actually, yes I do know about it. I like to stop by Twitter and catch up with what people are talking about and I love that so many of my fans are making the trip. It’s very touching to me to know they are as excited about this as I am. Their support is the only reason that I have gotten to this point, they deserve to be there as much as I do.

TCJB: You’ve been playing live for a dozen years, so you probably don’t get nervous. But do you think you’ll have any butterflies before you step out onto the circle?

Casey: As of right now I have been back and forth about it. I never do have nerves, but then again this is the Opry.

  13. When ever I hear anything concerning the Opry or the Ryman, I automatically think of John and June, two people who will live in my heart forever. And now, Casey James, another who will live in my heart forever will also be at the Ryman, wow, how blessed am I!!! The Ryman=Casey, John and June ❤ ( and I know a lot of awesome folks have been there, too many to mention, and I love them all, but these three are so special to me for many reasons)

  14. Karen says:

    This has got to be such a thrill for him to be playing at the Opry! I’m sure that his Paw Paw will be with Casey in spirit and very proud of him! 🙂
