CMT’s “Next Big Thing”, Casey James, Heads to the Opry [VIDEO]
Back on season nine of American Idol, singer Casey James came in third. Not winning it all hasn't stopped the Cool, Texas native from continuing with his music career and in a big way. He toured with Sugarland in 2011 and in October CMT named James as the "Next Big Thing". This has inspired him to continue writing and performing, and he's getting some pretty good gigs. Friday night he'll be making his Grand Ole Opry debut, performing at the Ryman Auditorium. His self-titled debut album will be released March 20. His first single, "Let's Don't Call It a Night", co-written with Terry McBride and Brice Long, sports a great video.
