Grammy-Nominated Singer Shares Mental Health Journey

November 16, 2021

By Cassadee Pope

Cassadee Pope is a GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-certified singer-songwriter who is gearing up to release her ninth album, THRIVE, in the Fall of 2021. The album’s first single, “What The Stars See” featuring Karen Fairchild and Lindsay Ell, is a raucous anthem about longing to see what a past partner is doing since going separate ways. Pope performed the track on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” where she also revealed the title of her latest album, THRIVE. The project is special to Pope – blending her 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, Cassadee released her first acoustic solo album co-produced by Pope alongside Todd Lombardo. The project followed her album, STAGES, 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” and releasing her #1 debut album Frame by Frame, Cassadee has effortlessly re-arranged the lines of Country and Pop. She has experienced tremendous success throughout her career, with 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 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. Cassadee performed “If My Heart Had a Heart” on the TODAY show and toured with Maren Morris on her GIRL: THE WORLD TOUR. 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.
