OOhhhhh myyyyy Goodness!! It is sooooo good to be back online!! My service was out a whopping 13 days!! I was experiencing some serious withdrawals!! I missed everybody so much....yall just don't even know!! But I'm back and ready to post all the latest news and whatever tidbits I can come across about Casey or anything remotely related to Casey!! :) Although I won't be able to post daily right now, never fear.....it's coming!! Just wait until we start getting the lowdown on Casey from Nashville!! Then I won't have enough time to write about all the reviews and articles and such!! But I certainly will give it my best shot!! If any of you who read Caseymania come across anything that looks or sounds post worthy, just drop me an email with the information or links to firstname.lastname@example.org I would appreciate any and all help! That is going to come in handy especially later on when his Tour Schedule is released and new shows are added to it! Sometimes a person may find a new show that actually won't be on the schedule yet or not posted everywhere yet, but a new one nevertheless! So anything you see or hear about, that I don't already know, just send me an email about it and I'll really appreciate it!!
As soon as I got online today, it was a pleasure to find a fantastic NEW interview from my friend and fellow blogger, Shari Geller! She certainly knows how to keep a reader captivated!! I just couldn't hardly wait to see what was on the next page!! Thanks so much Shari....love your work!! If you haven't had the pleasure of reading her Interview with Casey James, part 1.....then by all means.....get to it.....it's awesome!!
"Exclusive Casey James Interview-Part 1"
Most of you have heard me talk alot about how important air play on the radio is, to a new single and artist, and I stand by that, and there's some really cool radio personalities out there!! And one of my very favorites, is Cody Alan~CMT Cody
He is the ACM (American Country Music) 2010 National on air Personality of the year!! Here's a little bit about him:
Broadcast from CMT Nashville, CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan is all about country music and entertainment! With big star guests from Nashville and Hollywood- plus, live nationwide calls from fans, the daily dirt on entertainment and awesome access to events only CMT can deliver. Hosted by popular broadcast personality Cody Alan, whose dynamic charm and wit shine on air, taking you where no fan has gone before!
I have had the pleasure of speaking with Cody several times on his show! They just don't get any more 'real' than this guy....and how ironic that he used to be one of the DJ's at one of the Dallas Country Stations! I reminded him of that when I spoke to him the first time, with his new job and he had nothing but praise for the Major league Station that provided the first step into his awesome career at the tender age of 23! I remember calling him and requesting songs from him, and always loved his personality! :) He really deserves that honor, because he IS an awesome on air personality!! Cody loves doing interviews with his guests (Casey soon!!) on the show, and I'm here to tell you it probably won't be very long at all until we hear that our Casey will be a guest on his show!! You can 'stream' Cody from just about anywhere, because he is syndicated and goes out to many many radio stations across the country 5 nights a week from 7 till 12 CT. I stream (listen online) because it's easier to me and I don't have a great stereo. Check your local Country Station and see if they carry Cody's Show in their 7 till 12 slot and if they don't, just click the link above, then click 'where to listen', then scroll down and find your state and closest large city and click on it and look for 'listen online', or 'listen live' and click on it and before you know it, you're online listening to his show! If you are out of the states....you should be able to just click on any city you want from the list and access their 'listen online' link. I will be posting Cody's link and phone number to call him on the sidebar very soon! Let's all get to know Cody, cause you'll be surprised how personable he is with you when you call him!! Then we can ask him about our Casey boy!! Yea!! :)
I believe I'll go cook some supper.....but I'll be back later with some more information for the future......and in the meantime.......lets look back at Casey on tour this summer in Houston! Many thanks to Carman Wesson for her beautiful shot!
I was going to post some more things but I decided to save them for tomorrow's post! I'll leave you with this Awe inspiring video of what started this whole Casey thing to begin with......great memories.......
This is where it started for alot of us.....
