Las Vegas loves Casey!! And a new show!!

NEW UPDATES!! Scroll Down...

Tonight in Vegas in the Ovation room at the Green Valley Ranch, Radio station KCYE 102.7 had their annual Fan Jam!  There were 4 performers who took the stage one at a time and sang a few songs.  And because Casey was a bit more known to the public, he was #3.  He sounded great from the Conference Call.  Blaine was with him, and he too sounded awesome!!  They took the stage about 8:00 pm to a room full of screaming fans....it sounded very loud on the other end of this phone!!!  Total excitement was sweeping through the room as people who had waited patiently for him to take the stage, were overcome with total excitement as he strolled out to take his place at the mic!!  There were a lot of people there to see him.....I'd bet money on that!!!  :)
Anyway, he started things off with one of my total favorites...."The Good Life"!!  Then he played the intro to the newest of the songs that were unknown to the fans...."Working On It"!!  I really like this one....it just has that very cool country, rock sound!
Then he went into his current chart climbing single...."Let's Don't Call It a Night" before rolling into another cool intro.....

"She's Money" is quickly becoming a fan favorite....especially with all this new intro stuff going on!!  Wooo Hooo....he can play that guitar!!!  Gotta love it!!!  After this one, he said he had eaten half of his hair!! LoL!!!  Then he said something about American Idol....couldn't quite catch what he said. 
Then he goes into the familiar old cover "Polk Salad Annie".....and the crowd is going W*I*L*D*!!!!  Haha!!!  I love it!!!  They cheered all the way through this one....nearly....but I would've been too....my gaaaaa  he just wears that guitar out on this song!!!!  And the crowd could not get enough!!!
He asked if he could slow it down a little.....and someone actually yelled 'NO'!!!  LoL!!!!!
He told us that the next song did not make the album.....but if we'd buy this 1st one, maybe it could be on the 2nd one!!  Or at least.....thats what I think he said!!   Then he went into the tear-jerking, but very beautifully melodic tune....."That's Why I'm Feeling Blue".....And the crowd stayed quiet and then erupted in a nice round of applause and whops and hollers and whistles!!
Just before he started the slower "Undone", another of my favorites....he said he was just doing random songs!!  Thats alright with me.....I love everything he does anyway.....so it don't matter to me.....just as long as his mouth is moving and there's something coming out of it.....I'm a happy gal!! LoL!!  And I know I am in very good company.....with that last statement.....hahaha!!  :D
Then he went into his crowd pleasing guitar beating "Drive"!!!  We all know when we hear that one....the show is almost over..... wa...wa...wa... :(   But all good things have to come to an end.....and now.....all I have to do is wait for pictures and videos to come in, and I'll get 'em posted for ya!!
Here's the Set list in order as he sang them:

"The Good Life"
"Working On It"
"Let's Don't Call it a Night"

"She's $Money$"
"Polk Salad Annie"
"Why I'm Feeling Blue"
