Rising Country star, Casey James will be the headlining act at the annual Crawdad Days Festival in Harrison, Arkansas. Crawdad Days will be held on May 17th and 18th, with Casey taking the stage on Saturday May 18th.
Mi’chel Jarjoura is with the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce and joined Rob McBee on 1029 the Z Morning Show to make the big announcement:
Casey James finished third on the ninth season of American Idol, winning the respect of the judges and music critics across the nation. In 2010, on the heels of his Idol success, James signed with Sony Music Nashville. But rather than rush an album to stores in order to capitalize on his TV fame, the musician decided to take a breath. He immersed himself in Music Row, teaming with some of Nashville’s most legendary songwriters, from Randy Owen and Tom Douglas to Brett James and Scooter Carusoe. The result of that immersion is the self-titled album, Casey James, released in March of 2012, where it landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. 1029 The Z and the all of the members of the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce are looking forward to seeing everyone at Crawdad Days Music Fest 2013.
