Summer is coming and Cassadee Pope couldn’t be more excited. Fresh off of her first-ever No. 1 hit with “Think of You,” her smash duet with Chris Young, Cassadee hosted an intimate gathering in downtown Nashville on Wednesday night (May 18) to share songs from her new EP, Summer.
While guests sipped on both red and white sangria, a tasty “Summer”-infused adult cocktail, Cassadee and Big Machine president Scott Borchetta stood in front of the crowd to introduce each of the four tracks on the EP.
The theme of the night was self-confidence and encouragement. Cassadee is hoping her fans can see a stronger side of her in the new EP, saying, “I hope fans not only hear more of who I am, but see the confidence and reflection I’ve experienced since [her debut album] Frame by Frame. I’m more aware and grounded, so I hope the overall message from this EP is to be yourself and encouraged in life’s journey.”
Cassadee penned three of the four songs on the EP, including the title track. “Overall every song tells a different story, it touches on different experiences that I’ve had,” she said. “The message is to just be yourself. All I want is for people to feel empowered once they’re finished hearing the album.”
