    Thank you for your great recaps! It has been a special week for Casey and his fans. I was so moved listening on line to Casey’s Grand Ole Opry performance on Friday night. When I heard his fans cheering in the audience, I knew it was so many of you from this blog who had come to support him and that warmed my heart. You were an important part of the show for me. As a huge Casey fan I say thank you all for showing him so much love.
    I can only imagine how exciting these recaps will be once Casey’s CD is released and he starts to promote it with television appearances. It will be wonderful to see Casey’s talent shared with a wider audience. The new fans that he is sure to make will never match the dedication and enthusiasm of all of you, his original fans. You are so kind and loving, just like Casey.

    Appreciate the recap.
    What an amazing time the Casey fans had at the pre show dinner and afterwards watching Casey perform at the Opry. If I’m honest, and I know this will sound bad, but I had never heard of the Grand ole Opry until I read about it on this blog. I now realise what a very special moment this was for Casey and for the dedicated fans that were able to attend. It’s at times like this I wished I lived in America.lol. Oh also thought his mum Debra looked lovely in that bluey/green dress, loved her earrings too, might have to buy myself a similar pair lol.

    Oh ment to mention Carman (@coolcjfan), thanks for doing a great job on Casey’s Opry debut video, his voice was great and that new guitar produced a real country sound when he was playing Drive, loved it. Thanks to all the fans for their photos too.
