While Edwards & Lee were prepared to talk about his upcoming ‘WYCD Derby Days’ performance at Northville Downs this weekend, things took quite an emotional turn as Casey James opened up with the brutally honest truth about why he seemed to have ‘disappeared‘ from country radio for quite some time.

Check out the Motor City’s Most Wanted – most requested and most listened to songs on Detroit’s #1 for Country, 99.5 WYCD for the week of June 17th through 23rd! Count down on the air with the Dr. Don Morning Show, every Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m.!

American Idol dramatically changed Casey James life, with his career in country music off to a hug running start. Then it seemed as if he had somewhat ‘disappeared’ completely off the radar. It had been quite a few years since we saw Casey, and we were genuinely happy to see that he was back on the country music scene as he stopped by to chat with Edwards & Lee backstage at the ACM Awards in Dallas.

Just like an old friend would ask, ‘where the heck have you been‘ after not seeing them for a long time, Casey James opened right up with E&L, as he explained what was happening to him on a personal level, in the midst of a skyrocketing career in country music. Listen to this super honest, emotional and unedited interview with Edwards & Lee.
