‘Keep Me Coming Back’ kept the success coming. Catchy and upbeat, the song was released on August 18th and debuted at #4 on the Country iTunes Charts. It also rocketed to #1 on the Australian Country Tracks Top 40 charts. The single also made its presence felt in the North America when it made the Top 10 on the iTunes ‘Hot Tracks’ country charts. This was the third collaboration together with MSquared and one that continues to gather momentum and high chart success with each release.
Creatively Casey is now in the best place he’s ever been. Constantly pushing the boundaries delivering dynamic country/rock songs that embrace a feel good element. 2018 is already shaping up to be an incredible year with a new single and album on the way and shows booked around the country commencing with Tamworth Music Festival and a red carpet appearance at the Golden Guitars to support his ‘Qantaslink New Talent of the Year’ Finalist nomination.

16th February will see the lead single ‘Ain’t Coming Back’ released ahead of the new album ‘The Good Life’ which will drop March 9th. ‘Ain’t Coming Home’ is an uplifting feel-good party track that is welcomed as we near the end of summer and is a song that no doubt will resonate with fans and have them on their feet. The album was recorded in Melbourne with Casey teaming up once again with Michael Paynter and Michael DeLorenzis from MSquared Productions. ‘The Good Life’ proves that Casey is a force to be reckoned with on the country music scene. The album carves a path of contemporary country, delivering toe tapping songs that are destined to turn into favourite anthems.
