Here's a couple of shots of the sound check!  Thanks girls!

In other news....there's a new interview! And I love this DJ, she is pretty hilarious, and obviously a huge fan, herself!!  She's Susan Brown of my 92.5 radio station!

"I TRIED to get an in-person interview with Casey but that pesky restraining order keeps getting in the way!  Shucks!  So, instead we got him on the PHONE to talk about his show at the California State Fair this Sunday, July 24th, his upcoming album, and whether he remembers sneaking me into the party last year…?"

See what I mean??  Click HERE to hear that very cute and quite funny phone interview!!

As of now, we still don't have anything from the La Jolla, Ca. show.  It was a show he opened for Sugarland, so his set probably only contained 5 or 6 songs, since he doesn't have as much time, when he opens for them!  But if something at all comes through, I will put it in a new post!

Ok, thats all I have for right now..... I will update with new material when it comes in!!

Here's a nice picture of Casey, from a few shows back. 
Thanks to Jenn Johnston and Cyndee for this awesome edited shot!!  That could be an album
Ok, it's official!!!!  Casey just announced at his show at the California State Fair, that the new single is......

"Let's Don't Call It A Night!!"

He said we could start requesting it next week, that it would be out in about 2 to 3 weeks time!!!  This is so exciting I can hardly contain myself!!!!  Finally, we get to help him have his first hit single!!!!  We are going to have to be doing a few things every day to assure that he gets his rightful place in the Billboard countdowns!!  Very soon too, we will get a new video for the song, in which we will need to vote for daily to get him in the Top 20 Countdown every week, at CMT and GAC.
This is so very exciting!!!!!  More coming soon....

As the show started tonight, some of our girls were there to get pictures, videos, and do a conference call.  I listened in until my phone died.... :(  Then toward the end, someone on twitter asked if I was listening, that I needed to listen, they've gone to get somebody....ok, I'm curious now, so I called back in after a little charge time, and within seconds I heard this one man saying some things, (found out later it was Billy, the Keyboard guy) and then I heard Casey saying Hello?  I was suppose to say Hi to somebody!  Thats what I thought I heard, but maybe not.  Somebody said he said...."hope yall enjoyed the show tonight" and thanked us....then he was gone.  I tried to say Hi, but I don't know if he heard me or not.  Anyway, thanks to Diane, who made that happen for us!!!  It was awesome!!!!  :)  this night was just filled with surprises!!!
And here is the finished recording of the whole concert, for those who were not able to listen in, and it's pretty clear!!  Thanks Shari, Marie and Diane!!  Just click below!
