When people hear the classic and iconic song “Crazy”, the first person likely to come to mind is none other than Patsy Cline.

She did make the song famous, after all.

But, did you know she didn’t write it?

It’s a Willie Nelson hit.

While both singers are generally classified as “country” stars, the song itself defies the genre.

It’s a soulful ballad.

It was also originally titled “Stupid”.

We’re glad he changed the title, since we don’t think it would have had the same impact with those lyrics.

It’s a song worth covering.

Indeed, countless artists have covered the song over the years, one of whom is Casi Joy.

Joy has parlayed her online fame into television earning some serious accolades along the way.

According to her website:

“With over 35 million video views online, Joy has captured the attention of music fans around the globe who appreciate the way she melds traditional country and modern pop influences. A seasoned performer, her impressive social media presence eventually led to a highly-touted run on NBC’s The Voice…and was singled out by Rolling Stone as having one of the top 10 best blind auditions of all time – a testament to the hard work and dedication of someone who has been performing professionally since the age of five.”

She has big plans.

While she graduated from Park University with a bachelor’s degree in education, Casi Joy “has since been touring the US and Canada in her tour bus that she now lives in full time.”

When she’s not performing, she’s working on her social media following which is growing by the month.

Her second EP “The Bright Side,” debuted at #19 on the iTunes Country Album Charts recently and she’s planning much more music in the future.
