The mood is totally escalated in Jacksonville, Florida today as many Casey fans are getting together for his opening slot tonight at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena! We're predicting some great things coming from this show!! I will be sitting and fidgeting until the first pictures and videos come rolling through!! I'm still in awe at this wonderful opportunity Casey has earned to actually be opening for the hottest duo in the country!!! Only somebody of his undeniable talent could fill that spot!! Before we know it, he will be Headlining these huge venues, and we can all rest on our laurels, knowing we saw it long before others did, and he is exactly where we all knew he'd be....at the TOP!!
I wanted to share with all of you, something I completely forgot to post, what, with all the 'Casey Mania' (pun intended :) ) going on and such!! My friend Kathy, who shared pictures and wonderful videos with us from that very first 'Casey show' in Little Rock, also did a most detailed recap of the whole experience from her eyes!! And in all the excitement, I completely forgot all about it and didn't post it!! I do apologize to you Kathy, for my oversight!! Please read every word she has to say, because she will take you back to Little Rock on the ride of your life, for just a little while, a great distraction many of us need, in these busy days we have!! So....without further adu.....here is her story:
"Kathy's detailed recap of Casey's Little Rock debut"
Along with her wonderful description of the show, I also found a few more of her beautiful pictures, that seem to catch Casey in his 'moments' as I like to call them! See for yourself.....
This is Casey, just before going onstage at LR....looks as though he may be mentally preparing....
As you can see in this one....he's totally 'into' his music.....I love it when he goes there!
And this one....I'll just quote Casey......"No Words.....Only Love....."
Looks like Casey took the time to do an all important phone interview from Little Rock, before his debut opening act!! This is from Mlive.com an online version of the Grand Rapids Press, in advance, of their show coming up next week!!
In it, he talks candidly about when he started playing, and other things...
"I didn’t think of it as practicing my guitar, I just always had it in my hands; I literally never dropped it.”
"They are amazingly talented,” James said of the Grammy-winning group, Sugarland. “It’s unbelievable — I finally get to do what it is I can do. I get to play music I wrote, music that comes from my heart. It’s been a long time in coming.”
Casey also touches on his faith...."I don’t need to be going out and doing crazy things. I’m doing exactly what I’ve always wanted, and having this chance just strengthens my faith,” he said. “I’m really happy to be in a position to promote what I believe in. It’s about representing (Christianity) well. I want people to say "There’s something different about that guy."
Well, believe me Casey....there IS something different about you!! EVERYTHING!!! For the full story click "HERE"
I'm gonna scoot out of here for just a little while....I'll be back later to update from the Jacksonville, show!!
See yall in a bit!!
