He stole the hearts of millions of Americans -- especially of the female persuasion -- when he finished third in Season 9 of 'American Idol.' And for East Texans who have always looked forward to seeing Casey James in concert are going to get their chance.

Texas-born Casey James is making his Tyler debut on Thursday (May 16) at Cowboys in Tyler. James is currently promoting his newest single, "The Good Life," off his self-titled album that was released last Spring.

He had since released "Let's Don't Call It a Night" and "Crying on a Suitcase" as singles.

James placed third behind winner Lee DeWyze and runner-up Crystal Bowersox in 2010 on 'American Idol,' but he has seen solid success since. "Let's Don't Call It a Night" peaked at No. 21 on the U.S. Country Music charts and "Crying on a Suitcase" reached No. 24.

Tickets to Thursday's show are $10 for attendees 21 and over and $15 for 18 to 20. Click here to buy tickets online. Tickets also will be available at the door, barring a sellout.
