First Casey Christmas Card Exchange is a hit.....and a few seasonal videos!

Well.....hello everybody!!!  Are we getting lots and lots of awesome Christmas Cards from all over the U.S. and abroad??  I've been getting tons of them, not any international ones yet, but I'm sure they're coming!  People are telling me every day "thank you" for putting this together!!  And I thank all of YOU for joining in to make this happen!!  I know, being the first time there were some flaws.....but hey, at least those same mistakes won't happen next year, I hope!!  I'm going to create a new email address next year that will be recognizable to everyone and easy for me to send out group emails.  I'm having a hard time doing that with Gmail for some reason!   But I'm going with aol next year, and it should be much easier, for everybody!!

I want to Thank everybody who is sending out the cards, it's so awesome to go to the mailbox and see all these unique cards from all these great people!!  I will take the time to Thank everyone I can on Facebook, personally by a message, and for those not on FB, well, Thank You right now!!!   I love this!!

My blues are long gone and I'm having fun getting and sending out the cards!!  Thank you to all of you, who took the time to talk me through some rough days, I don't know what I'd do without you!!  At the end of the day I'm a real human with real emotions and have only talked openly about my feelings here once before.    I thank all of you for urging me on and staying connected to Caseymania even in the slowest time we'll ever see here!  I promise you it will not be this slow again, once that single hits the radio stations!  And I am so looking forward to a busy blog that knows no end to the Casey news!!

 Well, my creative side has reared it's head again, and having a subject cool as Casey to work with, the options are endless as what to come up with!  So I played around with a popular picture that probably everybody has seen and came up with this little doozy!!

Merry Christmas Everybody!!

This picture almost looks like he's holding the package in his hands!!  :)  Just pretend he's giving each one of you this lovely gift.......from him!

Ok....back to reality!  I think it's high time for some Christmas Music, and since Casey don't have any Christmas Music out yet, I'm gonna give yall some from my other Idol boy, Bucky Covington!  I particularly love his version of this Christmas Classic, and the spin he puts on it.....literally......you'll see what I mean when you watch the video!!  This is my personal video from a show just before Christmas I was at in Greenville, Mississippi last year.  Yall enjoy!!

And this is another of my favorites, and Lady A delivers it so playfully!  I just LOVE their version of this great song!!  :)

And of course.....who could get through Christmas without Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From the Family"   This has to be the funniest Redneck Texas Country Christmas Song ever recorded!  Remember yall, this video is all in fun, so I hope no one is offended.  Many of you, not being familiar with Country music for very long, may not have ever heard it!!  And I hope there's some of my readers who hasn't, because I guarantee you a belly laugh!!  Enjoy!!  Yall leave me some comments and let me know what you think of my choice of Christmas songs!!

Oh, what the heck, that last one got me to laughing so much, I thought, "I can't close this post without some Bill Engvall......'here's your sign' humor"!!   So here's some Christmas time song humor from one of my favorite comedians!!  For some reason the embedded link was diabled so I had to just post the link, so click on it and get ready to roar with laughter!! 

"Bill Engvall's 'Here's Your Sign' Christmas Song"

A great big Thank You to all these fine folks for their awesome videos! danburst12~barrettdalton31~warnerbrosrecords

Before I go, I wanted to Thank everybody for all the thoughts and prayers and well wishes during my sick spell!  All of you are just incredible, loving and caring people and I wished I could thank each of you in person one day!!
Thanks for being a Casey fan and Thanks for reading Caseymania.....

Until next time......yall stay warm and stay well!!
