Cat Country 107.3 welcomes James Wesley to the Cosmopolitan Restaurant and Lounge in Vineland this Thursday night!

James Wesley released his first country album back in 1999; two songs were released to radio from that CD, but neither were hits. It wasn't until 2009 that James Wesley joined Broken Bow Records and started recording and releasing music again -- the song "Real" was released in 2010 (becoming his first top 40 country hit), followed by "Didn't I" -- which we are currently getting a lot of requests for on Cat Country 107.3 (factoid: the video for "Didn't I" was directed by our good friend Marcel).

James Wesley was busy this past summer as one of the opening acts for Taylor Swift. Taste of caught-up with James Wesley back in July and they asked him what it was like being on tour with Taylor Swift:

It’s crazy when you go from playing a conference room at a radio station, where it’s maybe just you and another guitar player, to then play with a full band at some of the clubs and honky tonks with Luke Bryan, Josh Thompson and Miranda Lambert. But it’s pretty cool to go from those size venues to the first show in Foxboro, Mass., that we had with Taylor … it was like holy cow [laughs]! It was unreal when we walked out there just to do soundcheck that day. We’re standing there in the New England Patriots stadium and looking out at all those seats thinking, “We’re right here on the 40 yard line, and we’ve got all these people who are going to be here tonight!” It’s just mind blowing. Then you do the soundcheck, and you think you’ve got the monitors loud enough, but then when everybody gets in there, it’s like a whole new world. There were probably 200 or 300 people in just the pit right in front of me … that’s like my entire hometown in that little pit [laughs]! That first night it was definitely overwhelming, standing there in front of that many people. When you go from playing anywhere from 500-4,000 people to almost 60,000 people, it just blows your mind.
