Watch This: Casey James, 'Drive (acoustic)'

Posted 1:47pm on Friday, Feb. 17, 2012

With little more than an acoustic guitar, a cherry Pontiac GTO, and a weirdly glowing jukebox behind him, singer-songwriter Casey James shows why so many are looking forward to his self-titled major label debut, due out next month. Even stripped of its hard-charging guitars and drums, Drive still packs a punch, thanks to James's soulful performance.

He's currently burning up the road (in something presumably a little roomier than this vintage ride), ahead of the release of Casey James, with veteran Fort Worth musicians Blaine Crews and Justin Pate in tow. Everybody gets a homecoming March 23, when James stops by Billy Bob's Texas for a sure-to-be-rowdy gig.
