Part 1 of 3 day Texas Casey Adventure!!

Hello everyone!  Wow, I've been on a whirlwind roadtrip across Texas, going to 3 back to back Casey shows!  It was the last 3 of the "Taste of Country Christmas Tour" starring Casey James (of course)....and opening for Casey was J.B. and the Moonshine Band.  From the songs they performed it was pretty clear somebody in that band had been to jail....and was broke.  Ok, so that pretty much describes a lot of people!  They were pretty good, but my only complaint was that their music was way too loud!!  VERY LOUD!!!  I was always glad when it was time for Casey because my ears could take a break!  And, of course, Casey was the only reason I was there in the first place.  LoL! 
I started out in Ft. Worth, Texas where I met my wonderful friends from England, John and Anthea, at the airport, and we headed off for our first show in Lubbock.  We got there and rested up before the show the next night at the Wild West.  After 3 shows back to back, some of the details tend to run together, especially if you can't remember anything anyway!!  So yall bear with me as I try to convey the details from my worn our old memory..... :)
Since getting back I haven't been able to upload any videos from Lubbock yet, although I'm working on it.  For some reason, I feel like I'm the only person in the world who constantly has internet problems.  Hmmmm, I wonder if I should change providers?!  That might be my next move.  Anyway, I have a couple pictures.  Can you believe that face below??  I don't know what he was doing, but it certainly is a cute face he's making.  Thanks to Blake FM radio for these two nice pictures!

And he looks lost in thought in this photo..... I do wonder..... what's going through his mind at that moment.  Probably what is the next line of this song and what is the chord that goes with it!!  Haha!  Actually, I don't think he even has to think about it anymore!  I think it just comes natural.....except maybe an occasional inversion of the fingers.....which does not make for the correct chord!  He actually did that on "She's Money" and the band was all laughing and Casey was laughing, and I was laughing, because I heard it immediately, and saw everybody cracking up.  I think it's very good when a person can laugh at themselves when they make little boo boo's like that!!   And the majority of the people, I guarantee, never heard it!!  :D  Sometimes we think Casey is so perfect, and in some ways, maybe he is, but he knows he's not perfect, even in music.  But it's so close.....who cares!!  :)

The next pictures are mine....

Casey picked up quite a few new fans over the last 3 shows!  Me and Anthea were handing out Caseymania Cards to anyone who would take one.  I figure if I can get them to just get here, there are enough links that they can learn what they want about this talented young man, who is coming up fast in the Country Music world.  "Crying on a Suitcase" is holding it's own on the billboard charts, coming in at #22 with a bullet this week!!  So it's still doing good!  Keep those requests going to the radio stations fans!!  Good Job!!
Casey and the Band were on FIRE that first night!!  And Casey did something he's never done!!  Ever!!  So come back here tomorrow and I'll tell yall what it was he did!!  I wish I had more pictures, or video, from this show, but I can't seem to get them off my phone and on to my laptop.  It wants to load everything that is on the phone!!!  Ha!

Anyway, the Lubbock show was very good, and totally enjoyed by everyone there, that I could tell!!  :)  Can't wait to get yall some videos up!!
Oh, I remembered something.....at one point...(not sure what town this happned in but....) as he was playing his guitar, the front of the strap came off of the guitar and he was trying desperately to get it back on, kept playing and singing all at the same time!!  I believe the man can multi-task like a woman!!  :)  I felt so helpless standing there seeing this happen, and couldn't help him at all!!  Bless his heart....he finally got it back on and finished the song, never missing a lick!!  :)

Ok, I'm out for the night....bed time in Texas....

Adios yall.....more to come tomorrow!  :)
