Keeping Up With Casey: Album Release and Opry News

This week is shaping up to be a very big and busy one for Casey James.  Today we learned that his self-titled album will be released on March 20.  It’s the debut album for the American Idol alum, who took third place in show’s ninth season.  “I’m excited to be releasing my debut album,” Casey shared on his website. “I’m thankful that I had the freedom to make the record that represents me as a musician and singer-songwriter.”

To say that James was an active participant in the creation of his album is an understatement.  Along with the singing, he also played both the electric and acoustic guitar throughout.  And then there’s the songwriting aspect.  He co-wrote nine of the album’s eleven tracks.  One of those tracks, “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night,” is currently at #33 on the Mediabase chart.
