Cassadee Pope is a GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-certified singer-songwriter who released her ninth career album, THRIVE, on October 15, 2021. The album's first single, "What The Stars See" was co-written by Cassadee and features Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) and Lindsay Ell in a raucous anthem about longing to see what a past partner is doing since going separate ways. Cassadee performed the track on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where she also revealed the title of her latest album, THRIVE.
This latest project is a career milestone for Cassadee -- she wrote or co-wrote every song, blending influences from her pop-punk days fronting the band Hey Monday, and the country music storytelling and songwriter that she now calls home. Last year, she released her first acoustic solo album, RISE AND SHINE, which was co-produced by Cassadee alongside Todd Lombardo. The collection of original songs followed her critically acclaimed album, STAGES (2019), featuring hit singles "Take You Home," "One More Red Light," and "If My Heart Had a Heart.”
From fronting rock band, Hey Monday, to winning Season 3 of The Voice (2012) and releasing her #1 debut album FRAME BY FRAME (2013), Cassadee has effortlessly re-arranged the lines of Country and Pop. She has experienced tremendous success throughout her career, with the Platinum-selling single, "Wasting All These Tears," being awarded with "Breakthrough Video of the Year" at the 2014 CMT Music Awards and her #1 hit "Think of You" with Chris Young receiving a 2017 Grammy nomination for "Best Country Duo/Group." Cassadee has performed on the TODAY show and has been featured in countless notable publications, including PEOPLE Magazine.
Cassadee has toured extensively, joining legendary artists Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley, playing London's iconic O2 Arena during C2C: Country to Country Festival, and earning the distinction of the only Country artist to perform at 2018's Warped Tour and joined Maren Morris on her GIRL: THE WORLD TOUR in 2019. Cassadee continued to tour throughout the spring of 2019 as the headliner of the "2019 CMT Next Women of Country Tour," which brought the franchise outside of the U.S. for the first time ever.
