Casey James is gearing up for the release of his self titled debut album on March 20th by debuting a video for an acoustic version of his song “Drive” on VEVO. He’s also still on the road performing for radio stations, and recently debuted a new song that will appear on his album. Check out lots of video, after the jump.

Casey debuted a video for his song “Drive” today on VEVO, and it’s more than just an acoustic performance of the song. Let’s just say they chose their setting and props appropriately!

Casey James recently performed a showcase of new music for Indianapolis radio station HANK 97.1 FM. Check out HQ videos of those performances here, including a new song called “Working On It”, one of only 2 songs on his debut album that he didn’t cowrite. “Workin On It” is cowritten by Bob DiPiero, Brandon Kinney, and Daniel Tashian.

“Workin On It”

“Never Walk Away” (which will not appear on Casey’s debut album)

“Let’s Don’t Call It A Night”

“The Good Life”

“Miss Me When I’m Gone”

“She’s Money”

Check out the tracklist and songwriting credits for Casey James’s debut album here.

    I like the new song & watched the Drive video early this morning when it came out.  I agree, really nice setting for the song & I think it’s pretty smart of Sony to put this new video out.  I have a good feeling about how things are shaping up for Casey.

    It is a great surprise to find an acoustic music video for Drive this morning! It is really well done, and it fits Casey nicely. 

    Is this more for an indication that Drive will be the next single? I hope so.

    oh nicely done!! I like the song –first time i like one of his.
    Great guitar playing and he’s so gooood looking – that won’t hurt haha

    I am loving Working on it, Casey did say that the song fit him so well, and he is right. Never Walk Away isn’t really my type of thing, but it sounds really good here, it has such a different vibe then Casey’s other songs. 

  • sagi

    OMG! Never walk Away is so beautiful, it is too bad it won’t be on the album :( It is going to be on my Ipod, though! brb going to go convert this to mp3!

  • epic_win77

    Drive… ah I miss these types of raw MVs. No gimmicks, no overproduction.

    Can’t wait to hear how Working On It translated to CD. Either this or Drive is perfect for next single. If only Sony agrees with it.

    I only listened to 30 seconds of this blues bar drivel before turning it off. How could someone with so little talent make it to the Top 3 on Idol, much less land a major record deal? There is literally no power or resonance in his voice. He makes Scotty McCreery sound like a good singer.

  • sagi

    This is only the second AI artist that I can not wait to get the CD. Casey is sooo talented, his guitar skills alone would make many wanting! And his whiskey voice goes down like honey! And did I mention he is easy on the eyes? :)

    BrianC? Rings a bell.

    BrianC? Rings a bell.

    Long time no see.

    I am wondering if they would play something like this on CTM or GAC. Perhaps because it is only a guitar the instrumentation might be to bare. But it is still great that they have done something like this. 
    I hope they will one day also perhaps release an acoustic album for Casey.

    Are you implying that Scotty can’t sing?…so much for your taste……LOL !!!

  • stargazed

    Casey, the man, the guitar, the voice, the hair. The man has it.  He’s hot!  I usually don’t buy Idol cds but this one I can’t resist.

    Love this video of “Drive”! It is a great upbeat song and shows Casey’s guitar skills so well. I like “Working on it” a lot too and “Never Walk Away” is such a beautiful song. Really wish it would be on the album!

    Love his music, dude did the right thing waiting to get songs with soul and not push out something too fast. Will be buying this!

    I’m definitely looking forward to Casey’s album an think he may end up being the real winner of Season 9!

    Season 9 really was a joke. Biggest group of losers I’ve ever seen.

    Fantastic!  He heads my list of Idols who should be a lot more famous than they currently are.  I do not even like country music, but I love what I think of as the Austin sound.  I could be way off base with that description, but what I mean is that this stuff is really enjoyable.  Go redeem your season you gorgeous and talented man.

    Yup. Yup.  Casey is gonna be big!

    Late to the party! I was out all day yesterday – saw the post on my phone and was so darn frustrated when the Drive vid wouldn’t play. ARGH.

    This is not just some slap dash vid put together as an afterthought IMHO. This is really professional. I wonder if this does mean they’ll release Drive as the next single with another full band vid? Could this be a vid that is mostly for the press kit they put together for PDs? I’m kind of frustrated because I don’t know enough about the business side of the music industry to figure out what this means. Sigh.

  • sagi

    I have loved everything I have heard from Casey, and I truly believe every one of his songs has hit potential! This is going to be a good CD for sure. o/

  • vmac

    I was never a big Casey fan, but I really like these songs!

    One of the things I’ve noticed about Mr. Casey is that he is getting really, really good at banter. Sly wit, good interaction, very smooth. Not that this is any great talent, but it does help when you are doing show after show after show after show trying to build your audience.

    Gad. Just listened to this recording of “Never Walk Away” – haven’t really listened to it in months. What a powerful song. I pray that CaseyJ has the chance to do another CD and will delve into this bluesy, sadz side of him.

  • mchcat

    I am really glad he is putting out a CD – I liked him best during his season and had hoped he would succeed.  I will for sure buy this.  I have a Carrie, two for Scotty (he is still my favorite) and I did buy and am enjoying Kellie Pickler’s – my favorite from Casey J so far is Miss Me When I’m Gone – love it

  • Taro

    I barely watched S9 and didn’t hear about Casey James. He’s certainly got IT. Love his guitar playing! And he writes most of his songs on his upcoming album? Wow I’m impressed. Seems really talented. His good looks don’t hurt either …

  • Anonymous

    Yep, Taro. CJ wrote 9 of the eleven songs on the upcoming album and co-produced it too – which is fairly rare for an AI alum. And what’s even more remarkable to me is that there are tons of songs he’s rolled out over the last few months that he’s written with big time peeps like Oscar Winner Tom Davis, Alabama’s Randy Owen and Delbert McClinton that aren’t even included in the album.
