Hey everybody! Hope everyone is doing great today! I know alot of us are probably suffering from withdrawals and not sure what to do with ourselves....that's completely natural. We don't have that daily, new Casey info we all look forward to every day! But that's ok, it's natural to be feeling that way! So....we're going to look back on Casey's journey on Idol and just see where it takes us! I am so proud, as I'm sure thousands of you are as well, that I was there from the very beginning! I saw that now famous shirtless audition in Denver and he was my pick to win it from that moment on. I never questioned my decision, it felt right, is all I can make of it! I saw in his eyes that day, the pure longing to be heard, the 'want to' in his eyes! He wanted this more than anything in his life, and I, along with the rest of you, saw that, and was determined to give 100% of my time and effort to help him obtain it!! As my friend, Mickey proudly displays on her facebook page, 'Casey James Cougar Club', "His looks may have gotten him noticed, but his talent kept us tuned in and voting!" That just about sums it up for me! Thats exactly how many of us feel to this day! We saw something that some others did not see.....yet! And he gained many many fans through the process of the show, as he came back week after week, desperately ill most of the time, and never let us down! We all came to love his beautiful personality, his deep soul,his great mind, his awesome guitar skills and last but definitely not least.....his soulful, gritty, raw and sometimes tender vocals!! No one sounds like him, he is unique on so many levels, although some people have likened him to Eddie Vedder, of Pearl Jam, and there is some similarity there, especially with the 'quiver in their purrs'.......as someone said the other day!! :) Casey is his own man, and I have faith that he will go very far in his new career, and I'm proud to say, I will be there, every step of his journey, proudly supporting him with his rise to fame!! Oh, he is famous now.....but people.......as we say in Texas.....'you ain't seen nothing yet'!! :)
Casey's Journey on Idol....
I'll be back in a little while with more........
Here's what Elliot had to say about our boy Casey at the Cincinnati show! I grabbed just his review of Casey from MJs blog.
Casey James came on and though we both liked him, we weren’t flailing like we were with some of the other contestants. However, this dude can really shred a guitar and I have to admit that he’s the only one who could pull off switching guitars mid-song without it seeming douchey. I definitely see now why he got signed. His duet with Mike was more enjoyable than it was on the show, and they both sounded well on it. I give the edge to Casey, though.
This review was from a Lee fan, so considering that, I guess his take on Casey's set was pretty good!
