I'm so far behind on news it's not even funny....so, I will get what I can from the Tulsa and Houston shows and post it today, and will work on Phoenix tomorrow. That's the plan anyway, lets see if I can stick to it! First of all, the Idols are in Phoenix tonight at the US Airways Center! I will try to find that video that Big Mike sent out where one of the buses....(the band) was broke down about 3 hours out of Phoenix and they were joking that it may be an acoustic show! Well, that would not be a problem for Casey, now would it?? He sounds good, no matter what he's playing!
Here we go....found the LNS and this one is funny....love it!!
"Late Night Sandwich in the middle of the desert in the day edition"
Ya know....I really want to thank Big Mike for starting this LNS series, because it gives all of us a glimpse of their life on the buses and on the tour as it progresses through the U.S. I really like all the Idols, they seem to be good kids, but I'm especially thankful Mike lets us see so much Casey in his little episodes! I got to see Mike briefly the other night in Dallas, but I didn't think to tell him Thank you! Gosh....I always forget the important stuff to say when I'm looking at 'em in the face....but I'm not star-struck....uh uh.....not me....well, ok, maybe just a little!! :D
Here's the first video I found from Houston....and they captured some screen shots that are great!
"I Got Mine" Houston 8-7-10
Thanks to hmissgator1 for sharing this video!
Breaking News!!! Casey has signed a record deal with Sony Nashville!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is the original tweet where he broke the news to many many fans as they waited for that 1000th tweet that Casey had earlier said would contain a 'Special Message'.....
I will be working with Sony Nashville!!! Not sure the exact specifics, but there will be an official press release soon. Unreal. :)
OMG!!! I am so excited to get this news, I'm nearly crying!! Memories are flooding back of the night I saw Casey and I watched him on that TV for the first time, and his dire need to be recognized for the artist he was.....standing there with his shirt off on National TV, practically begging Randy to put him through to Hollywood so he could show the world what he could do!!! I am so very proud that I can say I chose to support him in that audition in Denver that day!! And believe it or not, even though his looks got him noticed by me, I saw something in him that day, I saw in his eyes the need to do what he does, his voice was so pleasant, and I couldn't wait to see what he was talking about!!!!!!!
I never really saw another contestant, Casey was my choice to vote for and support from that moment on! And as I got to 'know' Casey through those videos and interviews and to see him talking about his backstory and the motorcycle accident that nearly caused this day to never happen.....I knew he was going to be loved by many many people!!!! And he was the first Idol in all the years of keeping up with it, that I picked in audition to make it to the finale!! Never have I ever voted like I did for Casey, actually buying a Go Phone so I could group text hundreds of times on vote night for him!! When I wasn't at a Watch Party for Casey, I was home, voting on 3 phones! My hubby would help sometimes with the home phone, so I could work the other 2 phones!! I saw something in him that day in Denver that spoke to my heart and said...."You have to do everything in your power to help this kid"!!! And I did!!!! And I have made so many wonderful friends across the US and the world because of him!! So, for that and for bringing us your beautiful music and voice.....THANK YOU CASEY JAMES!!!!!!!!! I really hope you can read this, so you know how devoted I am, as well as thousands of others from around the world!!!!! This is only the beginning for Casey.....he has a beautiful journey in front of him, and I, among others, will be there every step of the way, supporting him and his beautiful family as well!!!! Ok, I'm so happy right now, the tears are streaming down my face!!! I have to go now, but I'll be back soon with more from Tulsa and Houston, if I can find it!!! This is a glorious day!!!!!
Ok, I'm back, but with very little to post....it's real slim pickin's as far as Tulsa and Houston goes, but I'll check a couple other things! I did come across an article from tulsatoday.com check it out>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>"American Idols Live-Brought Stars To Tulsa"
Time for some pretty on the page....and boy do I have some pretty!! I hope Casey don't mind that we call him that.....Big Mike does.....so maybe I can get away with it too....lol...
And now.....ba ba da baaaaammm.....Introducing...."Mr. Pretty"!!
Can all of you see the absolute raw emotion in his face as he sings from his soul??
He looks so desperate to show us who he is through his song!! I can feel it through this picture....so much going on right there!!!
All he knows, is he is pouring out his heart to us right there on that stage!!! Just breathtaking!!
Thanks so very much to bleudreams for these superb shots!!
