American Idol Season Ten finalist James Durbin is playing in town Thursday night at The Thompson House. I had a chance to catch up with him on the phone earlier today. I really enjoyed talking with him, he seemed like a great guy and very down to earth.

During our conversation he talks about his time on Idol and how he almost didn’t get to even audition, gives us a preview of what to expect at his show and a lot more. To hear the interview click the play button above.

The 2014 Cincinnati Reds Caravan begins and ends at Great American Ball Park with an expanded route of 17 fan stops in five states with the addition of stops in Evansville, Ind., and Nashville, Tenn.

The kick off for this 3,000 mile journey over four days is Thursday, Jan. 23 from the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum and ends on Sunday, Jan. 26 in the FOX Sports Ohio Champions Club. The Reds Caravan is presented by Cincinnati USA Regional Tourism Network.

Each tour travels simultaneously through Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee providing fans with the opportunity to interact with current and former players, broadcasters and members of the Reds front office staff. At each fan stop, the group will field questions from fans and sign autographs while time allows.

The four tours return to Cincinnati on Sunday, Jan. 26 for the annual Select-A-Seat event at Great American Ball Park, where they will join fans meeting with Reds ticket representatives to choose ticket plans and seat locations for the 2014 season.

New for 2014: The West Tour will visit Eastland Mall in Evansville, Ind. on Friday, Jan. 24. The South Tour will visit RiverGate Mall in Nashville and Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Saturday, Jan. 25.

“As our fan base continues to grow, we are expanding the Caravan to visit every corner of Reds Country,” said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer. “Our player, coaches, broadcasters, and Reds personnel look forward to these four days every year as our official kick off to the new season of Reds baseball. It’s amazing to experience the welcome we receive from our loyal fans at every stop along the way.”

All Caravan fan stops open to the public are free, and at each fan stop listed below (excluding Select-A-Seat) the Reds will raffle two tickets to the 2014 Opening Day game on Monday, March 31 (4:10 pm) vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.

Reds sales representatives will be at each stop to answer ticketing questions and discuss 2014 ticket plans, while the Reds Hall of Fame, the Reds Community Fund and Cincinnati USA Regional Tourism Network will attend selected stops.
