For all of you that thought American Idol’s ninth season contestant Casey would turn to rock, you’ve been mistaken — he’s releasing an album on Sony Nashville!
Yee-haw! American Idol‘s resident hottie (otherwise known as Kara DioGuardi’s cougar prey), Casey James, has announced that he’s finally releasing his first album – and it isn’t what you’re expecting him to sing!
Casey wants to date women that love him for him – and not just because he was on a TV show.
Out with the old and in with the new? Not so much the credo for American Idol’s season 10 third place contestant Casey James. In fact, the luscious-locked guitar player from Cool, Texas feels safer dating his exes now that he’s found fame (and maybe fortune) as a TV star!
“I have some special girls that I have known in the past I think about leaning toward, revisiting — something along those lines — just because they know who I am and knew me before this,” Casey, 28, told Hollywood Life.com June 17 at the Idol summer tour kickoff press conference in LA.

We know Bret Michaels isn’t the type to sit around and twirl his thumbs, but three doctors are concerned his brain will bleed again if he keeps up all this activity!
When Bret Michaels strolled out onto the stage to perform with Casey James during the live American Idol finale May 26, our jaws dropped. Wasn’t this the same guy who last month was on the brink of death after his brain suddenly started bleeding and then survived only to suffer a mini stroke weeks later? What was he doing rocking out on one of the highest-rated TV shows in the country?
Do YOU think Bret should be rocking already?
Crystal was dumped by her long-term BF, Tony, the day before American Idol’s season finale — but she seems to be moving on just fine!
Was Crystal Bowersox crying into her drink after losing both her boyfriend, Tony Kusian, and the Idol crown all in two days? No, she was not. In fact, she seemed downright happy at the uber-exclusive post-finale Idol party, where she was caught celebrating with none other than second runner-up Casey James!
An insider at the bash, held at the Mondrian Hotel’s swanky Skybar in LA, caught Crystal, 24, kicking back with her dad, some friends AND the sexy rocker — whom she once confided to have a crush on. Hmmmm…..
Bret — you’ve made your point — you ARE back — brain hemorrhage, hole-in-the-heart and doctors warnings be dammed!
Your poignant standing ovation performance of “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” was the heart and higlight of last night’s American Idol Finale!
The unexpected duet, was rousing anthem for life — YOUR LIFE!
Bret — you already overrode your doctors orders, to appear on last sunday’s Celebrity Apprentice finale, which you won. Read more
Before pre-taping his appearance on Ellen DeGeneres talk show May 20, the fallen Idol couldn’t find the new jeans he was meant to wear…too bad he didn’t just go out in his undies!
We were the first to tell you what underpants Casey James prefers (purple boxer-briefs, FYI) — and now we’ll also tell you that you very nearly saw the sexy American Idol rocker in his smalls on the Ellen DeGeneres May 21!
You’re probably asking yourself what you might have done to deserve such a gift right about now. Although we can’t answer that, we CAN tell you that wardrobe department at Ellen managed to misplace the brand new True Religion brand jeans they had hand-picked for the 27-year-old Texan, who was voted off Idol May 19.
American Idol’s sexy blond rocker was well aware that there would be a Lee/Crystal showdown during the season finale!
Casey James knew what America was thinking this week — it was his time to go home!
“I’ve been prepared at every single round from the beginning of the show, because you never know,” the 27-year-old Texan said May 21 during an American Idol conference call. “What will be, will be, and you have to be prepared either way. I kind of knew this was coming, so I was more than prepared [Wednesday] night.”
Crystal Bowersox and her ‘musical crush’ Lee DeWyze are in the finale on American Idol — but why would these two pals have a beef?
You called it, America! You’ve long predicted a Crystal Bowersox/Lee DeWyze showdown in the season finale, and last night you were proved right when sexy Casey James got the boot. But these two BFFs — who seemed genuinely stoked that they’d be facing off against one another — ever dislike the other?
BFFs, are you upset with the judges decision last night to send Casey home? We love our blond, Texas man but we knew he would probably be sent packin!
Casey James is headed back back to the lone star state! The 27-year-old Texas native was voted off in last nights, May 19 episode of American Idol. We will miss our guitar playing, dog lovin man but now it’s down to the final two contestants — Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze.Click to VOTE on whether the judges made a mistake!
Our own American Idol judge was NOT impressed by any of the remaining contestants last night — and he thinks Lee DeWyze is getting special treatment!
Sorry Casey James, Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze, but you made Blake Lewis’ ‘Worst Top 3 of All Time’ list. How’s them apples?
“To be honest, I think the song choices this round made this the worst Top 3 show in American Idol history,” the 28-year-old season six runner-up tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively of the May 18 performances. He added, “Idol has given [Lee] an easy hand to get into the finale. It’s not really fair to Crystal and Casey by giving Lee a production [he sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with a gospel choir] that big at the end of the show. It leaves the audience feeling like he’s won already.”
During an evening of lackluster performances, Lee was definitely the best — but he better not take the Idol crown away from Crystal Bowersox!
Typically during American Idol performance night, I pay attention to little else. But when the top three attempted to sing their hearts out May 18 I was BORED, mostly because my least favorite contestant, Lee DeWyze , was the best of a bad lot. Read more & watch Lee’s performance!
