Casey James at Bell County Expo Center, Belton, TX

Casey James opened for country music legend Alan Jackson at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas last night.  Before the show, the Sony/BNA website shared this press release about Casey’s three-day stint as opener for the legendary Jackson:

With his debut single, “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” approaching top 20, Casey James is set to take the stage with country music icon Alan Jackson for shows this weekend. On Friday, the Texas native will open for Alan in Benton, TX and Saturday, the show moves to Las Cruces, NM. Casey will play the Country Thunder Festival in Florence, AZ on Sunday.
On his upcoming shows with Alan Jackson, Casey said, “It’s Alan Freakin’ Jackson! He is a poetic storyteller, and one of the best artist/writers there is. And as a performer, he has been entertaining and selling out shows year after year. It’s a huge honor to open for him.”

Casey, and his all-Texas band, played a seven-song set in front of an enthusiastic and huge crowd of fellow Texans and music fans.

Thanks to our good friend Donna McKool, we have audio of Casey’s set: During his last song of the night, Casey introduced a new member to the Casey’s guitars’ family — a new dobro .

At the show, Casey had some merchandise on sale for fans, some t-shirts and a Koozie, which apparently is used to keep your canned beverage of choice cold:
