I think my internet is back on....I certainly hope so, because I'm blogging anyway!!! Wow!!! Where do I begin?? The last couple weeks has been a very very busy time for Casey and the boys!! I'm talking 8 shows in 9 days, & in too many states to count!! I would have fell out 4 shows ago.....but Casey seems to thrive on it!! Oh yea, he gets tired like everybody else, but I think he may have a little super human ability there somewhere, cuz he can keep going and going!! :-D
Anyway, if you'd like to look back on everything that happened since I've been gone, go see my friend Jenn at Casey James Weekly Highlights because so much happened, there is no way I could catch up. So pay her a visit, she does a fantastic job of keeping up with everything Casey James!
Anyway, while I was gone, Casey and the guys were running around in Florida, Indiana, North Carolina on a Yacht, no less....Georgia & stopped off at the Opry, cuz they were in the area (lol) ...... oh..... and the new video for Crying on a Suitcase was officially released on 8/27!!! And you can buy yours on iTunes right now!!! And I'll post it below in a minute. I finally heard the song on the radio for the 1st time, on my Waco, Tx. station TODAY!!! It was played at about 6:36pm.!!! I was so thrilled!!! I immediately called them up and thanked them for playing it!! And told them that I would love to hear BOTH of Casey's songs on the radio, and they said they would be playing both!! That is the best news.....finally.... a country station in my area, is getting behind our Tx boy!!
And now....I give to you..... Casey James in ....

And one more kinda big thing happened.....he debuted for the first time LIVE, another song from his album, "Tough Love"!!! And from what I could tell, the crowd was really digging it!!! Listen for yourself and see....this is a great song, and he sounded beautiful with the rock edge going on!!!
Tough Love (thanks to luvscaseyjames)
Casey sent us all one of the sweetest 'yellow notes' I've ever seen. See for yourself....
I wonder how many other artists connect with their fans in this way?! I'm guessing not many.... he really is a sweetie, with a big 'ole heart full o' love.... makes me just wanna just squeeze him right now.... :-)
And.... couple days ago I was up late and on twitter, and Casey tweeted this.... mmm so sweet.
Casey James Blessed for the things in his career....
