Casey James in North Canton, songs, new videos...

Casey was obviously feeling good tonight, despite the fact that he hadn't eaten all day!  I know, crazy right??  That guy loves food, how could he not eat?  Well, I guess he was busy, getting there and all.  He said he was on a plane and when he got there, he hadn't eaten all day, so he had drank a Red Bull to give him some energy, and he said he was shaky!  Even telling the audience members the words may not have been correct on the 1st song, but if they weren't, they were to act as if they were!!  HaHa!!  See what I mean???  Ha Ha!!  Yep, that Red Bull had him chattering like a teenage girl!!  HaHa!!  And that was only with the first song!!  He continued to banter and joke and interact with the audience, sometimes saying,  "I love you too" back to a fan, as he sang one song after the other 'all by himself ' he put it!  This was an acoustic show, but he told the audience to 'act' as if there were drums and electric guitar and all that stuff!!  He really was in rare form!!!  Well, he did quite a bit of it at Billy Bobs, but I'm pretty sure he was even more entertaining tonight!  I just love that he's coming out of his shell and really learning, quite well, how to entertain people, besides ripping up his guitar and belting out all those beautiful songs with his pristine vocals!  He is becoming an entertainer!!  And I couldn't be more proud of him!

There was a conference call from the show, thanks to @bethshep for doing this for the fans!!   It was so clear!!  I, unfortunately forgot about the time change and got on it just in time to hear the last song....crap!!!  He did a nice long set and gave the fans 16 songs that jumped genres from time to time, but mostly the set had the 'country' feel to it!  Here is a list of them as they were performed:

Small Town Saturday Night
I Lied
Crazy Tonight (New Casey Original :))
She's Money
So Sweet
Let's Don't Call It A Night
Big Boss Man
Everybody Thinks Your Still Mine
Polk Salad Annie
Promise Me ?? (New Casey Original)
Why I'm Feelin' Blue
Leave Me Alone
Shine Your Shoes
The Good Life (New Casey Original)

Ok....were yall counting??  Yes!!!  That's 3....count 'em THREE new, unheard, original songs from Casey tonight!!  I do believe that is a record!!  I'm just many more of these gifts is he gonna give us??  Love 'em all....he's such a great songwriter and performer!!  

He also told the crowd that he wrote the lyrics and the melody at the same time with "Shine Your Shoes".  That was one of my questions on my list!!  And....that's exactly the way I write songs....not that I've written very many, but every one was written exactly that way!!  He said he writes songs different ways....sometimes Lyrics first, then melody, sometimes melody first, then lyrics.....then sometimes they just come together at the same time!!  :)

As our good luck would have it, somebody has recorded the entire show and here is the audio, and it's so very clear!!  I had to link it to The Casey James Blog, (thanks yall) since it was you have to scroll down somewhat, and it's just below the list of songs.  Enjoy!

  1. What a fantastic show Casey put on in North Canton, OH!!! He's a consummate performer, playful, soulful, haunting and very seductive! I love the new songs - You'll Never Walk Away has the most beautiful ending - so full of emotion. His cover of Old Love was also very moving. I can't say enough about this man and his talent!

    I truly hope the "good life" will come on strong for our Casey James!!
