New Single and Video for Casey James!

Hey yall!  Wow, it has been a long time since I was last here, but I'm back and we are gonna try this again.  I've been going through some personal issues, but I'm in a better place now, and things are happening in Casey's world again.  His 1st single off the sophmore album has been released a month or so ago and they just now finished working on the video last night.  It'll still be a couple weeks to a month before it's released to CMT and GAC.  I hope we get a 'behind the scenes' look at how it all happened.  I just love those videos, there's usually quite a bit of funny favorite!

So, I finally got to go to a Casey show after a year!!  He was only 2 hours from me and I had to make it to this one.  But, when I learned it was for the military and their family and friends, I was excited for them, but my heart sank... and I just knew I couldn't go.  Then I remembered, my neice, Shannon lives right in Killeen, just a couple miles from Fort Hood, where the show was happening, and her hubby is in the military!!  I couldn't wait to ask her to please go & let me go with her!!  Much to my surprise, their family was already going!!  So me and my buddy Suzette, jumped right in with them and headed to the Stadium where the show was happening.  Casey was opening for Trace Atkins!  So we get there pretty early and the gates were opening at 5.  We saw a line of people and I thought.....omg....we will never get to the front of that stage....that HUGE far away!!  So we were looking around and somebody found a shorter line going in on the side, so we all took off and I had already told the young ones, "Run, just as fast as you can and save the old lady, me, a spot!"  So they did and so were other people and I trotted along behind them, being careful not to step in any potholes and land on my face!  Finally I get up there and low and behold, them kids had made it to the front center of the stage!!  I couldn't believe our luck!  So the rest of the family was busy laying down blankets a few feet behind us and in just a little bit we saw some man come to the stage and welcome us, and he introduced some people and then it was time to introduce Casey!!
So I had texted Debra to see if she was there, and within 2 minutes she was right up there hugging and meeting new fans & cheering her baby boy on with all of us!! :)

Nice crowd in Fort Hood!  Casey is just so entertaining!  He is so not the same artist we all came to love from American Idol!  He is SO much better now!  So where is Ellen now??  I bet she can't say "I want to see you entertain more"... because he is such a great entertainer now!!  I told Debra at the show that it's his 

"Casey-isms" that makes him so good!!  He is so unique in a fabulous way! :)

First 3 songs and some Casey banter!

Wow!  I love  it when I can get a 3 song video to upload without waiting 8 hours!  Thank you wi-fi!!

Heres Debra and I just before the show started.  Never mind my big mouth open, I have no idea what I was doing... lol.  But Debra looks lovely as always!  It was great to get to hang out with her, she is always fun!

As a lot of you already know, Casey went to the studio to join the very talented classic group, The Doobie Brothers!  They have composed an album of their biggest hits and a handful of country artists came on board to help them recreate those hits.  Casey got to be one of the artists they chose.  He recorded a song with them that most everyone has heard at one time or another.  He was hoping it would be this song and it was!!  Check out Casey singing "Jesus is just alright" on the newly released album, "Southbound"  Click HERE to get yours!

Here is a picture of them in the studio.Photo: #CaseyJames working in studio with  #TheDoobieBrothers  on the track #JesusIsJustAlright for there album #SouthBound !!

Here is one of the promo shots for the new single, "Fall Apart"

So make sure when you get a chance, get yourself over to iTunes or Amazon and get your copy!!  If you can afford to do so, buy extra copies and give them as gifts to friends and family.  That is a great way to support Casey!
Ok yall, I'm still trying to remember how to do everything around here on this blog, so I'll be back soon.  There was a show in MN last night, so maybe I'll get some pics of that and post a little about a whole group of Casey fans!

Until then...

New single coming soon!!

Hey ya''s everyone doing?  I know, it's been a while since I announced we were coming back, and I apologize for the long wait, but there just hasn't been a whole lot to write about.  With Casey working diligently on Album #2 in Nashville, and no tour schedule....well, it's been a bit of a Casey James dry spell.  But I think there are a lot of fans more than ready to rock out to some Casey live shows!!  Am I right??  We recently got word, he's still working on the album and about 1/2 done.  He and Sony Nashville are gearing up to release a *NEW SINGLE* in about 6 weeks!!!  That is so exciting to hear!!  We've all had a long, very looong winter and are ready for some much needed spring fun!!  So get your phones charged up and ready to call your local country radio station and request that new single when it drops in a few weeks!!
We don't know yet which song it will be, (because we don't know what songs will make the cut for the album) but I'm sure many of us are hoping for "A Womans Touch" to be the 1st one!!  If you are a new fan to Casey James, here is a video of this beautifully written, sultry & sexy song!!  Every woman will fall in love with this gem!! If you don't get chills, you're not feeling it!  :-)  Check it out here....

Thanks to CYN DALE for this awesome video shot in Colorado September 2013!!

Some of the fans are showing their excitement in some cute and creative ways!!  Suzette Rollin is pretty excited to hear the news about the new single coming!!  :-)

Ha Ha Ha!!  Thanks Suzette, I needed a good laugh!!  And that is a cute way to show your enthusiasm!!

Casey has a show coming up next weekend in Las Cruses, N.M. at the Las Cruses Country Music Fest.
He will be taking the stage Saturday, April 26th.  For more information click the link above!  I hope many Casey Fans get to show up for him, since this is the only show we know about right now!

A couple weeks ago, Casey's mom released a very beautiful song, in time for Easter, from her upcoming album, featuring none other than her famous son, Casey James!

Today was a good day!  We got notice that 4 new videos were put on #CountryNowTV on #YouTube!  Before each song, Casey talked a little about how the song came about and then sang it, just him and his guitar.  Great big thanks to @CountryNowTV on twitter for posting these awesome videos for us!  We are so hungry for any Casey news, this was perfect!

"She's Money"


"Never Walk Away"

"Light Years" (NEW)

Ahhhhh.....  I'm here to tell you right now.....nobody sings a love song like Casey James!!  Nobody!!  He has this uncanny ability to bring you right into the music and lyrics with him...and make you think he's singing just for you.  That is an artist my artist with God given talent.  He was born to do this.... and I for one am so glad God chose him.

Ok, back to earth....  Now, I have shared this on the Facebook page for  **CASEYMANIA**
but not here on the blog.  There is a new show coming up February 27th in Albuquerque, N.M. at the Isleta Casino.  You can purchase tickets at the  Isleta Casino Boxoffice!!  (At the time of this post, the show is not listed yet, so check back.)  He will be opening for the amazing Joe Nichols!!  The number to call about tickets is 1-877-475-3827

Well, I can't get the picture to post here so I'll just leave it alone.  Anyway, I'm going to the Albuquerque show with a friend.  It's been since October since I've seen him, so it'll be good to catch his 'live' show again and get me one of those awesome hugs!  If anyone else is going to that show, would you let me know??  You can post a comment or tell me on FB Caseymania, or even on my personal FB page.

Well, it's late, so I gotta run, take care yall!!  :)

We'll be coming back soon!!

Hello everyone...I just wanted to tell all of you I'm sorry...I should've came back and told you all something, anything about why I couldn't post any more at that time, but I didn't.  And I apologize if I was negligent.  But things in my life turned upside down and I just couldn't write, then I lost my Internet which put a halt to everything.
So with a brighter outlook on things and my need to write returning,  **Caseymania** will be coming back sometime in the near future!  I have missed you all so much!  And I'm still only able to write right now, I can't post videos or anything.  So be looking for @caseymaniablog on twitter and FB for new information about the comeback!

With much love & hugs
