Casey James (Casey Everett James) is an American singer and guitarist from Fort Worth, Texas, who was the third place finalist on the ninth season of American Idol.

Born in Cool and coming from Fort Worth, Texas, James had a bad reaction to his pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine when he was an infant, and his family feared brain damage. According to his mother, however, she realized that he would be all right and was going to be musical when he started humming before he talked. Then, at the age of 21, following a serious motorcycle accident, James was told by doctors that he would no longer be able to play guitar, a medical prediction that proved untrue.

In 2010, USA Today music critic Brian Mansfield suggested that James was "arguably...the best guitar player the show (American Idol) has seen". James had tried out for and been selected to compete in the ninth season of Idol in 2009 in spite of the fact that he had never seen the show. James is the oldest contestant to be selected for the Top 24 of the ninth season at the age of 27.

James was voted off of the competition on May 19, 2010 and came in third place.
