Casey James is looking forward to kicking off the Taste of Country Christmas Tour with JB and the Moonshine Band this week in Abilene, Texas. When the 'Crying on a Suitcase' singer stopped by the Taste of Country Nights studio to talk about the tour, he revealed that his mother occasionally hops on stage with him. At least, she used to...

At a show recently, James pulled -- really, pulled -- his mother on stage, aggravating an injury that would ultimately need surgery. "I didn't hurt her, she was already hurt," he insists, "But obviously I put her in a shocking amount of pain. Sorry mom."

But all's well that ends well. He adds, "Of course she sang like an angel and we had a great time."
