Casey James is all smiles over his latest single called “Crying on a Suitcase” — it’s a song that Casey says he loved the first time he heard it, not just musically, but also for the way that the song tells a cool story of not letting pride get in the way of things that really matter.  Casey told Sony Music he loves the message of his new hit: “The song says something that everyone relates to, but it says it in such a way that you can picture it in your mind. And not only that, but I mean, who hasn’t been in that spot where your pride has come in between you and somethin’ that you love? Or, you know…that’s a mistake people make, and this song is really just about that moment. In my mind, it’s about that decision: Man, go get her. Do it. Don’t wait. Don’t hesitate. Because, in my mind, the character — he’s not that kind of guy. He’s probably let a lot of things go due to his pride in the past. But this is that moment where he’s like, you know you love her, need her, want her, gotta have her — all those things that the song says — and because of that, it feels big to me. When I first heard it, I thought, ‘Man, this is just epic.’ It just feels that way to me.”
