Roughstock.com has a featured article today on Casey James. Their “New Artist Spotlight” delves into everything from Casey’s initial decision to go on American Idol (despite having never seen the show) to his current efforts to promote his new music on 19R/BNA Records.
Of Casey’s first single, “Let’s Don’t Call it a Night,” writer Chuck Dauphin says, “To say the song has a soulful undertone is something of an understatement.” Casey is quoted as telling the writer, “I’ve always really enjoyed the blues and hopefully that comes across in the music.”
The article discusses the debut single’s “impressive writers’ pedigree, with James co-authoring the tune with Terry McBride and Brice Long.” Casey said of this collaboration, “Terry’s amazing. We and Brice got together in a room. They’re great at what they do, and they’re a riot to be around. We just had a blast. You just know that things are going to be good when you get around those guys. I love the song we wrote, and I feel like it came out like we were hoping for.”
Casey also discusses touring with Sugarland, getting support from others in country music, his upcoming album, and being grateful. To read, and comment on, the entire article, click here.
