Casey James releases new single
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
– Casey James is releasing his new single Crying On A Suitcase
to radio. This is the follow-up to his Top 20 debut single, Let's Don't Call It A Night
from his self-titled debut album.
"I'm excited that Crying On A Suitcase is my new single," James said. "This song is so intense and emotional. The idea of someone right on the verge of losing their loved one, and doing everything to keep it from happening. Who hasn't been there?"
James' self-titled album debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Country Album Chart upon its release. He co-wrote 9 of the 11 tracks including the single.
