It’s been about 20 months since Season 9 American Idol finalist Casey James scored his 2nd t20 Mediabase country hit with the #14-peaking “Crying On A Suitcase,” and it looks like he and his label Columbia Nashville are finally gearing up to release the lead single from his sophomore album! In this video from a concert this past weekend, CaseyJ announces & performs his new single, “Fall Apart”:

Check out additional new songs performed by CaseyJ at the same show via the same source, with songwriting credits where confirmed:
“When We Get Together” (Mike “Cactus” Moser / David Lee Murphy)
“Woman’s Touch” (Jayce Hein / Stephen Pasch / Thomas Tillman, Jr. / Kim Tribble)
“How Many Miles” (Adam Hambrick / Merritt Hambrick / Kate York) – check out Adam Hambrick’s version of the song here.
“Fuel” (Kelley Lovelace / Wendell Mobley / Neil Thrasher)
“Living Or Dying (Casey James / Chris Lindsey / Aimee Mayo)
The new music is overall more oriented towards arena settings and for the most part leans more rock than CaseyJ’s debut album, which had sold 77k copies through April 2013. The bigger sound better fits the current climate at country radio.
In addition to CaseyJ’s original music, CaseyJ fans can also look forward to hearing him on the upcoming Doobie Brothers tribute/duets album, Southbound, due out 11/4/2014. CaseyJ duets with the Doobie Brothers on “Jesus Is Just Alright.”

What do you think of “Fall Apart” as CaseyJ’s new single as well as the rest of his new songs? Do you think CaseyJ will be able to build on his radio presence from his debut album to score at least 1 more hit?
