Early in his life, Casey James went through some obstacles that could have kept his music career just a dream.

Casey James got what some would call a late start to his music career at the age of 30. Early in his life, he went through some major obstacles, his music career possibly could have not started at all.

James was born in Plano, TX but was raised in a small town called Cool, TX, (population 170 in the 2010 census). When he was just a baby James had a bad reaction to a vaccine for his pertussis, or “whooping cough”.

Doctors feared he would develop brain damage because of this but baby James came through and turned out fine.

At the age of 13 he started playing the guitar and at the age of 21 he was involved in a serious motorcycle damage. Doctors then said he would never be able to play the guitar again. James again proved wrong the doctors wrong and his music career is just beginning.
