As Ferris Bueller once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Take this week for example. On Monday, there was a new interview, with Country Aircheck Weekly, a new review from Country Music Tattle Tale and the announcement that Casey had been added to the Taste of Country concert line up for September 10th in Henderson, KY.
Tuesday, it was back home, or at least back near home, with a visit to radio station 99.5 The Wolf, Texas Country to play some music. From there he headed to KSCS 96.3 FM in Arlington, TX where Casey was greeted with a surprise visit from his family who joined a select group of contest winners and their guests at a private, intimate concert.
Thursday, Casey was a guest of radio station 103.7-FM KXKT in Omaha, NE, which invited him to play at the Shadow Lake Towne Center Listener Lounge in Omaha, NE for a private lunchtime concert for contest winners. There was also another new interview, this one with Country Music is Love.
Finally, today, Casey was on radio station KHKI 97.3 The Hawk in Des Moines, IA, this morning with Danger and Lindsay. He Tweeted his fans about the appearance, then went on the radio with the DJ before playing a private listeners-only concert. Later, a fan spotted Casey at the airport back in Nashville. While that was going on, Country Music is Pride released an audio interview with Casey, DFW.com wrote about Casey’s single and the schedule for release of his CD, and another new concert was revealed, this one in Chesapeake, VA on 9/30.
Add to that the news of Casey’s auspicious debut on the country music charts, which gave him the distinction of being the 59th American Idol alum to hit the Billboard Charts, debuting at #57. CMT.com mentioned that there were three new songs on the Billboard country charts, Lady A. entering at 40, Casey at 57 and the Zac Brown Band at 59. We also saw more stations add Casey’s single to their playlist. It was quite a busy week.
Maybe the movie Casey’s life is imitating now is more like “If this is Tuesday, it must be Belgium.” Or more accurately for next week, if this is Tuesday, it must be Kentucky.
