Not since Taylor Swift in 2006 has a solo female country artist gone platinum on their debut single.

    Cassadee, who garnered fans and often dominated the #1 spot on iTunes prior to winning season three of The Voice, returned to the show last summer to premiere the song. The lead single has been a successful introduction to Cassadee’s Republic Nashville album FRAME BY FRAME, which debuted in the upper echelon on the Billboard charts – #1 Top Country Albums and Top 10 all-genre Top Albums. The achievement marked Cassadee as one of only two solo women in the past five years to top the Country chart with a debut release.

    Cassadee recently released a follow-up single, “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart,” which has created buzz online with over 640,000 views of the accompanying video – http://vevo.ly/fy6HUI.

    She has been an ambassador for hunger issues, helping to secure over 20 million meals across the country through an initiative with her record label Big Machine Label Group, General Mills and Feeding America called Outnumber Hunger. On April 4, Cassadee will join labelmates at “Outnumber Hunger Live!” during the ACM Party For A Cause Festival before heading to Nashville for a performance at the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four on April 8.

    This Summer, she will join Tim McGraw’s SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR and has previously toured with Rascal Flatts and in Canada with Dean Brody.

    CASSADEE POPE OPENS UP ABOUT PARENTS' DIVORCE IN NEW SONG OUT TODAY ON iTunes

    August 26, 2013 0 Comments

    Nashville, TN (August 27, 2013) – Cassadee Pope is opening up about her parents’ divorce in “11,” a new song available today on iTunes, from her upcoming debut Country album FRAME BY FRAME. While the full project on Republic Nashville won’t be released until October 8, the dynamic songstress is offering up a preview of the new music and a very personal look into her life now.

    Co-written with Nathan Champan, the autobiographical tune showcases vulnerability as she recounts childhood memories and life lessons: Momma did her best to hide her anger And I did my best to try and save her I was a little too young and a little too dumb To ever think the day would come When Dad would drive away and take his love with him So I grew up fast in a whole new world Waved goodbye to that little girl I can see her now Innocent and seven I wish I had never turned 11

    A recent Rolling Stone feature delves further into Cassadee’s journey and new music, including “11” and the previously released “You Hear A Song.” Produced by Dann Huff – with Nathan Chapman, Max Martin and Shellback contributing – more from the 11-song project will be available in the coming weeks.

The song has already catapulted to the #1 spot on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart and sold over 250,000 downloads. One Direction will also appear on the live telecast. The talented singer/songwriter will share an inside look at life since winning The Voice in a yet-to-be-titled CMT docu-series, premiering10/4 at 9P ET/8P CT.

    U.S. Marine Honored as Brickyard Sprint Cup Series Race Namesake

    June 27, 2013 0 Comments

    While deployed in Iraq, Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds, a diehard NASCAR fan, dreamed of working in the sport after completing his service. In 2005, those dreams took a back seat when Deeds placed himself in harm’s way to save the lives of his fellow Marines. This summer Deeds will travel to one of the country’s most historic tracks, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), not as a fan or employee, but as the race namesake.

    Today in his hometown of Erlanger, Ky., Deeds was recognized as the winner of Crown Royal’s “Your Hero’s Name Here” program, which awards one deserving individual naming rights to the July 28th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at IMS. Surrounded by friends, family and Marines, Deeds cemented his place in the NASCAR record books by laying the final brick, engraved with the official race logo, in a ceremonial “Yard of Bricks” at Flagship Park in Erlanger.

    While deployed in Iraq, Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a vehicle checkpoint. Upon seeing fellow Marines approaching, he exposed himself to the device, risking his own life to save others. He was severely injured and underwent more than 30 surgeries and procedures following the blast. Three years later, while still recovering, Deeds’ heroic instincts took charge once again when he saved the lives of three individuals caught in a rip tide off the coast of North Carolina.

    In addition to Deeds’ friends and family, special representatives from Crown Royal, Big Machine Label Group (BMLG), and IMS attended the ceremony and spoke of Deeds’ many accomplishments. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch surprised Deeds during the ceremony, appearing on behalf of the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF), and country music star Justin Moore debuted a special song titled “Heroes,” which was penned specifically for the “Your Hero’s Name Here” program. Consumers 21 and over can visit CrownHeroesSong.com to download “Heroes” for free. For every download redeemed between now and the Samuel Deeds 400 on July 28th, Crown Royal will donate one dollar to AFF.

    “I was so fortunate to be part of this program last summer,” said Moore. “That experience and the brave men and women I met along the way served as inspiration for this new song. The opportunity to debut ‘Heroes’ in front of a true hero like Samuel, his friends, family and community, is incredibly special to me as well as all of the folks at BMLG.”

    This will mark the seventh time Crown Royal has awarded race naming rights to an adult fan. After receiving thousands of entries during the nomination period, five heroes were chosen as finalists and adult fans had the opportunity to cast their votes for the person they felt was most deserving of the honor. As the winner of the program, Deeds will participate in a VIP race weekend experience, riding in the pre-race pace car, delivering the trophy bearing his name to the race winner in Victory Lane, and participating in the “kissing the bricks” ceremony following the race.

    “I’ve been a NASCAR fan for as long as I can remember, so the reality of having my name on a track with such rich history and meaning is beyond words,” said Deeds. “I am so grateful to all of those who took the time to hear my story and vote for me. I can’t wait to attend the race and dedicate that special weekend to all fellow servicemen and women who put their lives on the line every day.”

    Deeds, now retired from his service in the Marines, is a husband and father of two boys. His wife, April, nominated him for the program for his unwavering commitment to his country.

    “We could not be more honored to announce Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds as the 2013 ‘Your Hero’s Name Here’ winner,” said Abby Wise, Brand Director for Crown Royal. “His sacrifice and continued acts of heroism serve as an inspiration to all of us at Crown Royal and we are proud to provide him with the ultimate race experience at the Brickyard next month.”

    The official race title, Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com, will be incorporated into race memorabilia as well as the winner’s trophy. Various events and celebrations will take place leading up to and throughout race weekend to honor Deeds, during which Crown Royal would like to remind adult consumers to please drink responsibly.

    “It is our privilege to participate in this program with Crown Royal for the second year at IMS,” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation COO Doug Boles. “We’ve been introduced to so many deserving American heroes, and we look forward to rolling out the red carpet for Samuel and all other heroes in attendance at this year’s race.”

    Through a partnership with Crown Royal and IMS, country music artists from Big Machine Label Group including Justin Moore, Cadillac Three, Cassadee Pope and Dustin Lynch, will perform special concerts throughout the race weekend.
