Casey James Releasing Album March 20th

It’s a pretty exciting time for Casey James. He’ll finally be releasing his debut album on March 20th, followed by a performance on the Ellen show on the 21st. His self-titled album is a dream for the singer:

“My heart gets fluttery thinking about it,” admits the Cool, TX native. “All my life, I’ve wanted to get an album in stores. It will be a huge day.”

Casey has been waiting for this moment for years. It’s hard to believe for the former American Idol contestant that he’s really releasing his own album after all this time:

“I’m almost 30 years old and have been working for more than 12 years, at least 4 or 5 hours a night, every night at any place that would let me in the door and play. I actually sang before I talked. My dad sang to me before I was born so it was just something that was always in my blood and my heart.”

Even today, Casey is thankful for his third place finish on American Idol’s ninth season. He won’t forget where he came from, or where his fans have gotten him:

“It’s given me the exposure that I worked 12 years to get in every local bar, restaurant and private party. There’s the saying, ‘a 10 year overnight success,’ and that’s what the show did for me.  It was a great experience all the way around.”

Casey co-wrote 9 of the 11 songs on his self-titled album, including the first single. He worked with some of the top writers in Nashville for his record, including Terry McBride, Chris Lindsey, Bob DiPiero, and Brett James. Casey also co-produced the album with Chris, so fans should expect to hear exactly who Casey is in his first record. On working with some of Nashville’s best, Casey is thankful:

“I’ve learned a lot.  These guys are the titans of the writing world, and just the fact that they would agree to meet with me was amazing.”

Casey James’ self-titled album will be available both digitally and physically March 20th. Each day between March 10th and March 20th, fans can preview a track on different sites and be entered to win a trip to American Idol.
