Every new artist has those amazing “firsts” — a first big hit, a first album release, and so on — and Casey James enjoyed one of those kinds of experiences recently in concert. He was performing his debut single, “Let’s Don’t Call It a Night,” when the audience began singing along, and as Casey says, the feeling was almost overwhelming.
“My heart almost stopped! I mean, I really think that when I saw the people singin’ along with me, it was…it was just one of those moments where I just…I almost forgot to breathe, it was so intense. And there’s no words really to describe it for me, you know, and I’m sure that a lot of people — the big-time people, you know — get that sensation all the time, and I wonder to myself, ‘Do you ever get used to it?’ Because I don’t think I will. I mean… that moment where you’re lookin’ out and people are singin’ a song that came from your heart and your soul, and it means somethin’ to them, too. I can’t ask for more.”
Casey continues talking about hearing his fans sing his song back to him. “I was somewhere just the other day, and I started the single, and everybody started singin’ along, and it was just unbelievable, you know? Thanks to the radio stations for playin’ the song because people are starting to know it and sing along with me, and it was one of those moments — one of the best moments of my life, really.”
“Let’s Don’t Call It a Night” is the first single from Casey’s upcoming debut album, and you can pick up the song right now at your favorite digital music store, including HERE on iTunes.
