Ahead of the release of her upcoming acoustic album Rise and Shine on August 7th, Country music singer-songwriter, Cassadee Pope, has released two new tracks from the 8 song project – “Hoodie” and “Counting On The Weather.” Both tracks are available now on all digital streaming platforms.
Following the release of the first two tracks from the album, “Let Me Go” and “Built This House,” Pope kicked off this second stage of the album’s rollout by premiering the lyric video for lead track, “Hoodie,” exclusively with Sounds Like Nashville on July 16th.
“I’m excited to hear people’s thoughts on “Hoodie,” says Pope. “The lyrics talk about something I think most of us have been guilty of – contacting someone from our past that we miss, while using a random excuse for doing so. We think that we are being subtle with the reason we came up with, but it’s usually painfully obvious. I’ve definitely been the sender and recipient if I’m being honest.”
Rise and Shine, considered by Pope to be her most personal collection of music to date, is an authentically stripped-down reflection of her past struggles and triumphs that have shaped her into the woman and artist she is today. Each of the eight tracks featured on Rise and Shine are all co-written and co-produced by Pope herself, creating an intimate connection to each song.
On July 16th, Pope also hosted a second Virtual Release Party via Looped following the Sounds Like Nashville premiere of the “Hoodie” lyric video. She was joined in conversation by ABC’s Stephen Hubbard and performed her latest releases. Following the hosted Q&A and performances, Pope joined fans for an intimate Virtual Meet and Greet. She will be hosting a third and final Virtual Release Party on August 6th ahead of the full album release of Rise and Shine on August 7th.
