Casey James isn’t the only musical member of his family, and while other family members may play or sing, his mom actually made an album! Casey helped her record it a few years ago, and he says that, to this day, it’s still one of his favorite CDs — and not just for sentimental reasons! Casey talks about helping his mom on an album she made several years ago: “My mom has an album out called Cross That Line. And she didn’t go by her real name; she went by Bybee D. James, on the album. So it’s B-Y-B-E-E and then D, James. I guess she tried to make it as  complicated as possible. But it’s a great record, man. It’s, you know, it’s kind of a folksy, rocky, country thing. I don’t know what, you know, how you describe it, but it’s really beautiful music that she wrote. And you know, I helped her with a lot of stuff, you know, and not just production, but played guitar and mandolin and some gut string guitar and sang some harmony. And we actually did a a cappella song at the end:  a song we used to sing at church called ‘Talk About Suffering.’ And it’s just a beautiful CD. I love it to this day. It’s one of my favorite CDs, and it’s not just because she’s my mom:  it’s because I love the music.”
