Sony Officially Announces Casey James’ Debut CD’s Title/Release Date

After much speculation and some internet leaks, earlier this morning Sony sent out its official press release confirming the date and additional details concerning the launch of Casey James’ debut CD.  The self-titled album will be released on March 20, 2012.  It was co-produced by Casey, who also wrote nine of the album’s eleven tracks.

Here is the complete Sony Music Nashville press release regarding Casey’s much anticipated debut:

CASEY JAMES TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM MARCH 20

NASHVILLE, TN – 19 Recordings / BNA Records’ Casey James will release his self-titled debut album March 20. “I’m excited to be releasing my debut album,” shares Casey. “I’m thankful that I had the freedom to make the record that represents me as a musician and singer-songwriter.”

Casey continues, “I played eleven years of hard gigs in every bar and restaurant in North Texas and not many people even knew my name. That being said, I’m very thankful to American Idol for the opportunities the show gave me. I could’ve released a record right when the season was over, but I wanted to make an album deserving of all the fans that put me in this position. I feel like I’ve done that. And it feels good.”

To say that Casey had a hand in creating his debut album would be an understatement. The Cool, TX native co-wrote nine of the eleven songs on the album, played both the electric and acoustic guitar throughout, and co-produced the entire album with Chris Lindsey. The last track on the CD, “Miss Your Fire,” was written and co-produced by Casey, Chris and Aimee Mayo.
