GRAMMY® award-nominated, platinum-certified country hit maker Cassadee Pope released her first new single in nearly two years on Friday (3/30). “Take You Home,” co-written by Paul Digiovanni, Ben Hayslip and Emily Weisband and produced by Corey Crowder, marks a new phase in Pope’s musical journey, one with swagger, style and substance. Punctuated by confessional lyrics, “Take You Home” as Pope puts it, “is in-your-face musically, really intimate, and a little seductive.”
Of the song Pope says, “When you meet someone, there’s a moment where you want to show this other person where you’re from and exactly why you are the way you are,” she explains. “‘Take You Home’ speaks to that. You’re showing this guy that there are lots of layers to you. It’s not about just a one-night stand; it’s about really understanding. I’m in love with it!”
The singer’s powerhouse voice, inimitable presence, and endless charm transformed her into a force of nature beloved by millions worldwide. Following her victory on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice, her 2013 full-length debut, Frame By Frame, bowed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Its lead single “Wasting All These Tears” not only notched an RIAA platinum certification, but it also achieved “Breakthrough Video of the Year” at the CMT Music Awards in 2014.
During 2016, she also teamed with Chris Young for the No. 1 hit “Think Of You” and garnered a 2017 GRAMMY® nod in the category of Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Along the way, she toured with everybody from Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley to Young and Rascal Flatts.
“This is a new chapter,” she continues. “Lyrically, it’s really self-assured and reflective of where I am. The music is sweet and vulnerable, but it’s also confident and sexy. There are no boundaries in terms of the music and I’m not afraid to cross the line and go a little rock ‘n’ roll either. It’s definitely new territory for me all around.”
