New Show added, and Casey James visits hometown radio stations and more....

Casey was in his hometown today visiting the radio stations that will soon be playing his music!   KSCS 96.3 New Country  had a private party for him today at 4:00 at the studio.  Some of his family were there to welcome him home, as well as some fans.  He has a million $$$ smile when he's in Texas!!  I always notice that about him!  At this time, I don't have but one picture that I can show you, I haven't received permission at the time of this post, for others.  But when I do, I'll get them on here for you.  I listened to the station all day on my computer, (no radio in the house) but they never played Casey's song....  :(   I thought for sure they would, but they didn't.  Hopefully, now that he's been there they will add him to their playlist!  

The other DFW radio station, KPLX 99.5 The Wolf  did post one picture!!  It's one of Casey and the Program Director, Mark Phillips.  Here's what Mark put as the caption to the photo:
Casey James stopped by to play some new music and laugh at my hair....

New Video from the Private show at KSCS yesterday.

Thanks to thecaseyjamesblog for this awesome video!!

A new show has been added to Casey's schedule!  He will be replacing Steve Azar at "Taste of Country" sponsored by 99.5 KWDQ radio in Henderson, Ky. on Saturday, September 10th at 7:30pm.  Here's what the radio station's Eric Cornish had to say....

When we found out that Steve Azar wouldn’t be able to play at our Taste of Country Concert, September 10th, we looked for a replacement that would rock the house, and we have found just that person.  Casey James, who made it all the way to the final three of American Idol, season nine will bring his bluesey-country sound to the stage at Ellis Park. He will join Josh Turner, Josh Thompson, Glen Templeton, and local favorites Straight Laced in what promises to be an awesome show.  Casey wowed the AI audience with his unique sound and he also wowed former judge Kara Dioguardi by taking off his shirt at the auditions.  I can’t promise the shirt will come off at Taste of Country, but you will see an awesome show.  Take a look at one of his awesome performances on American Idol, then take a listen to his very first country single that was just released, “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night.”

Buy your Taste of Country Tickets for just $25!

Haven’t got your tickets yet for Taste of Country?
Taste of Country : Saturday, September 10, 7:30PM at Ellis Park Race Course, 3300 US Highway 41 North, Henderson, KY. Ticket Prices are $25 (General Admission) plus applicable taxes and fees and $100 (Best Seats in the House) ; tickets can be purchased at and at the WKDQ studio located here or WBKR studio located here.

A new review was spotted on Lunch Network.  There were a couple of sentences I could have lived without, but all in all it's a good review.  The writer said .....the song is soulful, catchy and smooth.  The Texas native's first single is a welcome blend of sensual vocals, similar to a mix of Josh Turner's "Your Man", or Chris Young's "Little Black Dress".  To read the whole story, click HERE
And please, if you can, leave a comment in support of Casey so the writer knows he still has fans from when he was on American Idol that have supported him since then and still do! :)

There was a new article, which I've been waiting to find, in Country Aircheck!  They keep up with all the music debuting and where it lands on the charts and stuff.  I used to read them all the time, and I'm going to get back into it.  But anyway, they posted this yesterday, it's a very cool interview with a nice, and different set of questions!!  Check it out!!

Off the Record: Casey James

19/BNA’s Casey James puts an industry
spin on the artist interview:

What station did you grow up listening
I grew up listening to about seven
stations. A few were Dallas-Ft. Worth stations
KTFW, KZPS, KEGL and KDGE. I listen to
everything and switch it up all the time.

Has a part of the country blown you
I’ve wanted to see the country all
my life and never really had the chance to
travel as much as I have in the last couple years. The Northeast
was so beautiful, and I was never expecting that. I thought it
would be extremely packed with people and crowded, but even
those places are cool. The California coast is breathtaking.

How do you adjust to all the travel on the road?
I don’t mind  the travel at all. The only thing that bothers me is being away
from my Basset Hounds Buster Douglas James and Daisy Mae
James. The ladies who take care of them are really good about
sending me pictures and updates.

What is your go-to food stop?
Depends on the part of the country. I’m a big fan of Chik-Fil-A and Panera. I try to eat
relatively healthy.

What nasty truck stop food tempts you?
99% of the time, none of it. But the other day, Chester’s fried chicken looked really good,
and it really wasn’t. Maybe it had been under the heat lamps for
a minute.

Which of your reps is the worst driver?
Chris Waters is hectic. I try to zone out, but if they want to drive 100 mph, we’ll just get
there much sooner.

Which is the best driver?
They all have good personalities and
good iPods.

If you had to get stuck in any city other than home, which would
it be and why?
Depends on what home is. If home is Ft. Worth,
then I’d rather be stuck in Nashville than anywhere else. If home is
Nashville, I’d rather get stuck in Ft. Worth. One of those two.

Are you a prankster?
Not generally, but if somebody starts stuff,
I’ll find a way to teach them a lesson.

Who have you seen live lately who you’ve tried to emulate?
I take everything I can from every show I see. It’s always good to
keep your mind open to anything you can learn and anything
you like, my mind's a sponge.

Well, thats all I have, for tonight.  Maybe tomorrow some pictures or videos will come through of Casey's visit to the DFW radio stations!!

Until next time......
