Casey James has a Twitter Party Sponsored by CMILove

What a treat to get the opportunity to ask Casey some questions. And, boy, were there some good ones! If you missed it or couldn’t keep up, here you go!

@everydayisa10 What did you find most challenging co-producing your album. Any desire to do more producing of other’s albums?
The toughest part was trying to keep perspective, but not compromise the original ideas.

@inta31 🙂 Hello from Latvia! Thanks Casey 4 the coolest music ever! I have 3 definite questions & hope you will reply.
k. go. 😉

@thelostsheep heard clips from the album- beautiful and brilliant 🙂 How do u choose which guitar 2 use on a song?
Well every guitar has a voice. I just try to match the ”voice” of the guitar to the soul of the song.

@desthemess just saying hi 🙂
Hi back at ya. 😉

@michelleLtanner What’s your favorite song to play live? 🙂
Changes every night

@jerribee In recent vids of full band I like how pedal steel sounds like slide. Will steel player be playing rhythm or other guitar parts?
Yes he definitely will be.

@salleecarvalho Where do Buster and Daisy Mae stay when you’re gone?
At the casa.

@inta31 #TillMyGuitarGetsTiredOfPlayingTheBlues” the most beautiful song by #CaseyJamesIsLove/ When will be able it to hear again?
Maybe soon…..;)

@deesquared777 I love the rock versions of yr songs.When recording, how do u decide how much rock/country 2 make them sound?
I just try to be honesst with the song. I usually have an idea of what I want it to be. Then it just goes from there.

@cjfan_jen My 10 year old started guitar lessons. She has learned 3 chords & Loves it. Any tips, advice, ideas for her?
Well I would just tell her to keep it up!

@coolcjfan Do you realize how much your fans sincerely love and care about you? It’s like you’re part of the family. 🙂
I do realize. And it is a huge blessing to have such amazing and dedicated fans. 😉 yall rock

@emersonb25 When will you announce the 2nd single?
As soon as I know what it is!! haha

@rainelyne Are you saving up for that Tundra or you want another truck now?
I DO love those trucks. But I really wanted a single cab, and I cant seem to find what I want. Im all set now though. 🙂

@rockendog Any chance u wud do an acoustic CD at some point? I love ur acoustic work
Without a doubt. I would love to. I actually have a list of songs Ive written that I want on it already. Lets hope…:)

@amity dawn i’m excited to see you back in Charlotte! Do you think you’ll do meet & greets then?
No doubt. I always do. 😉

@paulamxx Well my phone is going mental for the first time in a long time. I assume that
CaseyEJames is doing something
Yep. Hi!!

@kuk_z I’m listening to Bulletproof right now and I really think you should do more songs like that, blues-y
Come to a live show. 😉 You will get more of that.

@clblaylock Have you ever played the resonator guitar as a dobro? My 9 year old is learning the dobro now
Sure do. I played a Dobro on the studio version of Drive. Love that sound. Im actually looking for a specific one now..

@CejTxgal I just wonder…..do you swim? And if so, do you prefer a pool, lake,river or ocean? I know, sorry it’s not a music Q
I do. All of the above, depending on the situation. 😉

@KUAngel Would u tweet me a Smiley.. 🙂 Make my day please…
🙂

@KUAngel What did u think of the Jersey Shows? Saturday was awesome, thanks for a great time
They were a blast! Great crowds!!

@pjwood67 Mattie is an awesome looking puppy! How did you decide on a Mini Aussie as Momma James b-day present?
We had a full size Aussie growing up. I knew a small dog would be better for momma, so it was just about finding ‘the one’.

@anaperfoncio Where does your inspiration to compose your songs?
Just life. It can be a thought or an experience, or even a dream. Songs come from everywhere. 🙂

@anaperfoncio Do you have plans to perform international tours?
I would love that. We will see…

@LDG_lildrumgirl Are you nervous or mostly excited about your CD release date quickly approaching??
EXCITED.

@cjfanmke Do you prefer performing acoustically or with a full band more
Depends on my mood really. Both. haha

@MichelleLTanner What was your favorite part about making your album?
All of it. But the actual recording was prolly my favorite.

@TexasT_ Have any of your guitars ever been damaged during your traveling or gigging? Which one/ones? 🙂
My Blue One got dropped while i was recovering from my wreck. Guitars get used. As long as they can still make music…;)

I dont know, but I hope so. That was a blast!

@TexasT_ How difficult, or how easy, was it to select the songs that were going on the album? 🙂
Super difficult. Cutting songs you love from the album. uggh. But it came out right. Its all about the album as a whole.

@rottenrobynn Do you really open all the gifts we get you?
Yes I do. And I try to write back as much as possible. Its tough with my schedule though.

But there are sooo many like that. Thats just one I was thinking about on the plane ride in.

@anaperfoncio You watch your videos that fans post on YouTube?
Yes. They help me get better. But its hard for me to do. I hear EVERY mistake. ouch

You are welcome. I was glad to do it. 😉

    Thank you! I only caught a portion of what was tweeted. So glad to hear about an acoustic CD possibility. Also I learned a couple of new things, like them having an Aussie and Casey wanting to do a survival type trek. Wouldn’t he want to take his guitar with him? It was also neat to see how EXCITED he is about the release. Well, Casey, we are EXCITED too!
