The guessing game as to where breakout star and "
" Season 9's third place finisher's music will land has apparently ended.
Kara Dioguardi's forbidden fruit,
Casey James, has finally found a home for his music.
According to a Los Angeles Times
at Sony Nashville, James will be signing with the label, which is also the musical home to fellow "Idol" alums,
The report says James met with the label back in June after Season 9 wrapped. A month later, Sony Nashville's chairman and chief executive,
Gary Overton, who had watched James on "Idol," attended the "American Idol" Live Tour, in which James performs four songs. And, apparently, he liked what he heard.
Sony Nashville produced "Idol" champ Underwood's debut, "Some Hearts," which has sold more than 7 million albums.
Are you excited that Casey's blues-inspired music has found a home and he can finally start work on his first solo album?
