The first single from his new album "Open Eyes" strays from Cas’s usual upbeat mode. A melancholy vibe is "usually not my M.O.," laughs the TX singer-songwriter-guitarist. But when this particular song was conceived, life had interrupted Cas's rhythm.
With four albums under his belt and thousands of shows behind him, Cas was dividing his time between touring and spending time with his wife and kids on his Texas farm. He'd long since absorbed the hard-knock lessons of his dramatic runner-up finish on an early season of America's Got Talent.
Of course there were ups and downs along the way. But he always bounced back. Then in 2018 came a bigger jolt. His wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Suddenly life seemed a much darker place. Would music flow again? Inevitably, it did and Lessons & Blessings was born.
Amid all the twists and turns of his life & career, two things remain constant: family and the message of unity and love woven through his songs. Check out Lessons & Blessings https://www.mailboatrecords.com/lessons-blessings.html
