Casey James by Casey James
Released: Mar 2012
Label: 19 RECORDINGS / BNA RECORDS
The second runner-up on Season 9 of American Idol, Casey James releases a surprisingly solid debut. He infuses elements of both Southern rock and classic soul into contemporary country, neatly sidestepping the same-old by adding plenty of bluesy guitar riffs throughout. "The Good Life" opens the album off on an upbeat tone, which is amplified with another revved-up highlight, "Drive." The pounding, heartland rock of "Workin' On It" employs the kind of wry sense of humor that has traditionally endeared the "sly wink" country song to the masses.
