Casey James’ single “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” is currently approaching the Top 20 on all the charts, and now the American Idol alumnus is scheduled to open shows this weekend for iconic country star Alan Jackson.
Tonight (4/13), James will open for Jackson in Benton, TX and tomorrow (4/14), the show will take place in Las Cruces, NM. James is set to play the Country Thunder Festival in Florence, AZ on Sunday (4/15).
“It’s Alan Freakin’ Jackson!” said James. “He is a poetic storyteller, and one of the best artist/writers there is. And as a performer, he has been entertaining and selling out shows year after year. It’s a huge honor to open for him.”
James’ self-titled debut album recently hit No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. Nine of the album’s tracks were co-written by James, and he contributed his own guitar work.
