Minneapolis Native Casey Carlson is Making Her Way Through on American Idol.


I usually don't post American Idol performers on my blog, but considering Casey's a friend and sounds pretty good, this is totally legit.  Just a few years ago I met her MCAD at a concert and now she might be the next Kelly Clarkson, what a small world? She's also good friends with another up and coming Minneapolis artist Andy Ulseth, check them out performing a Decemberists track a few years back at the 400 Bar. Correct me if I'm wrong?    

Let's all wish her good luck and vote for a Minnesota gal, even if your not an American Idol fan. Tune in to Fox this Tuesday and Wednesday at 7pm to see her next audition, i think their down to the final 36.
