Casey James is currently playing the Taste of Country Christmas Tour, but in a way, he’s not exactly “touring” in the traditional sense, because the shows, which continue through mid-December, are all in or near Casey’s home state of Texas. And Casey says that one of the cool perks of being close to home on this tour is that he gets to be a performer and do what he loves, but still get to feel…normal! And if you don’t think sleeping in your own bed makes a difference read on to what Casey had to say:  “I don’t want this to come off the wrong way, but to a certain extent, it’s kind of like I can just be a normal person, for that day. And I wake up at my house in my bed with my dogs, and I eat the normal breakfast that I would if I was there, and then I go, ‘Oh, yeah, I’m gonna go perform.’ And I’d get in my vehicle, and I’d drive to the gig, and you know, that whole process is so drastically different than playin’ a show, getting on the bus, driving to the next town, waking up in the next town on the bus, maybe having a clean-up room, or maybe you shower at the venue. You have catering…you go, and you do, you know, this, that and the other, and you just don’t really have a place to stay, and then you play your show, and then you do the whole thing over again. And that’s wonderful, and that’s great because that’s my life most of the time, so you learn to kind of accept that as the norm, but what’s more normal than waking up in your own bed?”
