Hey everybody....hope your day is going great! I got up too early this morning and I'm still tired, but maybe writing some will make me relax so I can take a nap! We got some damage from the storms the other day and the roof has a hole in it and leaking....not fun! So, the guy came out this morning to estimate the damage and the whole roof needs replacing and we have a friend who is a roofer, so hopefully he can do it at a better price for us, and no more leaking! Thank goodness, there's only so much you can do with buckets and towels! :)
Well, sources say Casey is leaving for Nashville today, but rumors have been flying and we weren't exactly sure when he was leaving Ft. Worth. But, from what Debra tweeted this morning, looks like he has business in LA and in Nashville. Here it is in her own words in reply to the question if Casey was in Nashville yet:
"Not yet..business in LA and Nashville first I believe"
So....he's still doing business in both cities! But good news on the health side concerning Casey from her as well:
"Casey's slowly gaining ground on his respiratory problem thank goodness. Thank you all."
I, for one, couldn't be happier to hear that! We've all been so concerned about his health issues for quite a while.....just about this whole year! Bless his heart, I bet he's feeling so much better! I'm so happy to get this news! Thanks Debra for filling us in!!
I'm assuming that most of you have seen the video's shot in Dallas last Friday night and noticed his shorter "doo" he's sporting!! I like it, as long as it don't get cut short, I'm good with how Gino is cutting his hair!! But he was donning another look as well.....the beard.....and it was thick, so I'm assuming he's been growing it since he got off the tour and returned home! I just don't prefer him with the beard.....he looks older to me, but it's a good incognito look......yea right......Casey James we would know you if you had a bucket on your head!!! Ha Ha!!
But.....for those who are not the Casey fanatic, well, he could probably slip through a crowd unnoticed, with that look!
I'm sure by now the pandemonium of the tour has settled a bit, and he should be able to walk around without a disguise, but who knows......after his performances on that tour he picked up thousands of more fans! So maybe he can't do that anymore. But I do know that not everybody watches American Idol or goes to the tour shows and with this years declining ratings......there were even less people tuning in and paying their hard earned bucks for the pricey seats!
One thing I know for sure......life as he knew it in Texas before American Idol is now in his past. And I'm sure he will miss that freedom to come and go as he pleases without being noticed by some people. After his blazing hot sets on the tour over the summer, he has surely put to rest any rumors that he was nothing but a 'pretty face looking for a shortcut to fame!' But all of that talk comes with the business, you have to turn your head away from the negative crap, and if you want a record deal, you need the fans to buy your music and come to your shows.....simple as that! And with Casey's strong attitude and knowing who he is, and how to deal with the negative comments like a pro, there won't be a problem there.
Oh, I'm sure he'll be able to 'steal away' to some winter resort in Colorado for some down time, without being too obvious that he's hiding out. And we need to let him do that, as fans. Besides, there's resorts that alot of the stars go to, to 'get away' from it all and he could do that. But the rest of the time, he will become accustomed to fans clamoring for his attention at every show! He said he enjoyed the fans at the shows, and I'm sure he did, but even famous people have to take a break from all the craziness that is their life, from time to time. I'm sure this summer was a BIG wake up call for him and how his future was going to be, so I'm sure he will just need to take breaks from us, from time to time to just relax and have nothing on his mind and nobody screaming his name. I'm good with that, because I would not want to be in his shoes. The music business seems so glamorous, but it's anything but that! It's very hard work, lot's of traveling, radio station interviews, photo shoots, video shoots, in the studio perfecting his songs, personal appearances, and about a million other things that just wear a person to a frazzle literally! And I am concerned about his future health, having to stay so busy, but hopefully he will get into a groove and roll with it, and learn how to get the rest he needs to stay healthy. I know, I sound like an old mother hen, but I am so concerned about his health issues, and hope that some miracle medicine will come along and cure him completely once and for all, of his ailments! Then we and everybody else can stop worrying so much about him! :)
Well, let me see what I can find to make this page look better! Oh yes.....how about these?!
