I had the opportunity to speak with Casey James a little over a week ago, as he was relaxing back in Ft. Worth. Having chronicled much of his career in this blog and elsewhere, it was a conversation I had looked forward to. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish the interview. As you might imagine, this is a very busy time for Casey as he begins this new chapter in his life. It was nice to catch him in relative repose, with his dogs around him, just talking about music.
So, here's the link to part one. There's more from that hour-and-a-half conversation for a part two, which I'll get out shortly. I also hope I'll be getting another chance to talk with Casey after he settles into his new home away from home. In the meantime, here is Casey before he headed off to Nashville.
And here's the picture his mom tweeted with the line up of guitars that are making the trip with him.
