19 Recordings/BNA Records artist Casey James first emerged on the national scene with his third-place run on Season 9 of American Idol, but Casey had already been making music for more than a decade when he took his mom's advice to try out for the hit series. A native of Cool, TX, James grew up surrounded by music; both his parents played guitar and sang, as did other family members, and Casey was playing guitar and performing throughout his young adulthood. His wide-ranging influences include such artists as Merle Haggard, Vince Gill, ZZ Top, and Bonnie Raitt, with a mix of '70s rock, blues, and outlaw country all helping to shape his style. Following his success on Idol, Casey set his sights on Nashville, and released his self-titled debut album earlier this year. It's first single "Let's Don't Call It a Night" reached top 20 status on the Billboard country chart. His latest hit "Crying on a Suitcase" is currently top 25 and climbing. Keep up with Casey on his official website, www.CaseyJamesOfficial.com, on Twitter @CaseyJames, and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CaseyJamesOfficial.
Corey Crowder hails from the small town of Covington, GA where their only claim to fame is serving as the original filming spot for "The Dukes Of Hazzard". Learning to play guitar at age 12 led Corey to exploring a music career by the time he arrived at college in the Fall of 2001. After a few years at college, Corey followed his high school sweetheart (now his wife) to Greenville, SC. It was there he set about producing his two homemade collections of songs that turned out to have a remarkably broad appeal. Corey first reached national attention when his song, "Here's Looking at You Kid," was spotted on his MySpace page by producers of the MTV reality series The Real World. More of Crowder's early tunes appeared on such TV shows as The Biggest Loser, Bad Girls, and One Ocean View.
In early 2007, Corey decided to switch gears a bit and head towards more of a mainstream country sound. With a band now behind him, Corey released "Gold & The Sand" with Seattle based indie label Tooth & Nail Records. After Corey's song "Leaving You" was featured on CW's One Tree Hill his popularity grew to an all-time high and his MySpace listens and visits skyrocketed into the millions.
In late 2009, Corey self-released another record titled "Lost & Found". It was the first record Corey was featured playing nearly every instrument, including drums. After the release, Corey began to gain the attention of record executives in Nashville, TN. So, in late 2010 Corey and his wife made the move to Nashville where he is now a staff artist/writer at Universal Music Publishing Nashville. He is currently writing and recording for a release that is TBA and touring with national acts such as Willie Nelson, Joe Nichols, Billy Currington, and many others.
