Matt Kimbrow quotes “I have so much love for Texas Country Music! I told myself at a campfire at the Larry Jo Taylor festival while playing for friends, One day I want to be the next Pat Green or Cross Canadian Ragweed! I think our fans are slowly making this happen. The truth is, we know we have the best fans that take great care of us. Your dang right I’m going to do as much as we can to put on the best show for them as possible. They work hard all week and they took the time to come see us and show support. They can be anywhere else and doing so many other things but chose us. That right there is why I do this. I try and reach our fans/friends through our songs and hope they can relate to them and so far I think they are. To our Fans…The MKB greatly Loves you and appreciates you dearly! Its only getting better because of you!!”
Casey James was born in Plano, Texas on May 31, 1982 to Debra “Bybee James.”
Before American Idol, he played with his band, The Casey James Band, consisting of James, his brother, Billy Cole (bass), and Jacy McCann (drums). They recorded four songs, including the first song that James ever wrote, “Freezing,” back in 2002.
Casey James cites blues guitarist Doyle Bramhall II as a major musical influence and whom he would most like to perform with. Another major influence is Stevie Ray Vaughan James named Vaughan’s In the Beginning (1992) as a formative album in his early years.
I got an album called “In the Beginning” and I learned every note on it, which was easier to do because it was early on in his career [it was recorded in 1980]. I learned all those notes and it opened me up to the blues. When you look what he was doing, a lot of it was covers, and then you go back and start listening to those guys — the originals Albert King, Freddie King, Albert Collins — those influences changed me, too.
Other influences cited in the article are southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pearl Jam
Congratulations to Faith Hill with her first music video in five year.
“When I first heard this song I was brought to tears,” Faith said about the video called American Heart. “I not only knew I had to record it, but I almost immediately saw it visually. It’s awesome and so appropriate to be able to share it with my fans first, because they’ve been so supportive of me throughout the years.”
