Is Casey James About to Announce a Record Deal?

idolslivesunrise2010-26Is a record deal for Season 9’s Casey James about to become a reality?

Hans Ebert, a record executive out of Hong Kong has been following Casey’s career ever since the Idol guitar virtuoso stepped onto the Idol stage earlier this year.  Ebert was the first to blog about Casey’s talks with Sony Nashville shortly after the Idol finale.

Now, Ebert is reporting that Casey will sign with Sony Nashville and that Bill Leopold & The Collective are both interested in managing Casey.

  • Ebert’s blog was down last night. Read his post on Casey James’ signing HERE.  Bill Leopold who may manage Casey, also manages Melissa Etheridge.

Ebert claims that Casey’s signing will be announced in the next few days.

Interestingly, although the record label is based in Nashville, both management companies are not.

Hopefully, the rumors are true and we’ll be hearing about Casey’s plans for his debut album within the next couple of days!  The American Idol tour is headed to Texas, Casey’s home turf next week.  A signing announcement on the day of his hometown show sure would be nice, wouldn’t it?
