Casey James was the third place finalist on the ninth season of the reality singing competition, "American Idol." He is signed to the label, Columbia Nashville.
His single "Let's Don't Call It A Night" reached the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts and his follow-up single "Crying on a Suitcase" was a Top 15 hit on country radio. He was also nominated for an American Country Award (ACA) in the "New Artist" category for his music video for "Let's Don't Call It A Night."" "I was shocked that the first single did a well as it did, and I was reallu excited that 'Crying on a Suitcase' made it to No. 14. I feel that this is a good start and the next record is going to be a lot stronger and hopefully it will do even better," he said.
Along with rising country singer Sarah Darling, and musical acts Striking Matches and Mark Wilkinson, Casey will perform on the opening night of the 2013 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) at their National In-Service Conference. It will be held on October 27 at the hallowed Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee. "I am excited to be a part of it since I feel that it is extremely important to have people doing what they are doing and for me to be able to say 'thank you.' It makes you feel good and I am excited to go out there and play for everybody. It is such a great cause," he said. "The Grand Ole Opry is a great and special place. I have played there quite a few times now and it's always special to be there. There is no better place to hold this Conference."
The NAfME is one of the world's largest arts education organizations and it advocated at the local, state and national levels, thus providing resources for teachers, parents and administrators, as well as diverse opportunities for students and teachers.
On sharing the stage with Sarah Darling, he remarked, "Sarah is a sweetheart and an amazing singer, so I am excited to play with her."
Regarding his future plans, Casey shared, "We are staying strong on the road and a lot of things are going to change over the next six months. The new record is going to be more mature and I am excited to get out on the road next year. I enjoy playing live music. In the end, it all comes down to putting on a good show."
