Casey James Releases Emotional New ‘Crying on a Suitcase’ Video

Vevo

In his latest project, Casey James proves that in addition to his singing and songwriting skills, the man knows how to act on camera, too. James just released the emotionally-charged video for ‘Crying on a Suitcase,’ which fits in perfectly with the heart-wrenching song. As the second single from James’ self-titled debut album, it’s sure to turn some heads.

The video opens with a shot of James standing alone in a bathroom, staring into the mirror. Judging by his shaggy hair and tired eyes, he’s contemplating a seriously sad situation. As the video cuts to a montage of the singer hiking, dancing, and taking photos with a beautiful girl, it’s easy to see that James is playing the forlorn lover of a girl who has left him. Sure enough, the video shows the two once-lovebirds arguing until the beautiful brunette picks up her suitcase and walks out the door.

Unfortunately, there’s no happy ending to the three-minute clip — only an open-ended one. The video closes with a series of shots of James playing an emotionally-wrought guitar solo. Before the last scene, he picks up his keys and drives away — maybe to go get his girl back? It’s hard to say.

“This is the first opportunity I’ve had to ‘play a character’ in a video,” James shared in a statement. “My focus is always the music, but it was a lot of fun working outside my comfort zone. I wanted to make sure that the small amount of acting would be believable, and I feel like it is. I’m very proud of the video, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

‘Crying on a Suitcase’ has been climbing up the charts since its release. Currently, it’s sitting at No. 33 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
