Pope returns to VANS
Tuesday, June 26, 2018
– Cassadee Pope is going back to her roots by joining the VANS Warped Tour for three shows this summer.
Pope played the hard rock Warped tour for eight years ago as the lead singer of punk band Hey Monday. Pope plays on July 30 in Charlotte, N.C. and July 31 in Atlanta.
"Growing up, the thought of playing Warped Tour was a dream. Now, not only do I get to say 'I played Warped Tour twice', I get to perform songs that I poured my heart and soul into over the last few years. It almost feels like a graduation of sorts for me, and I can't wait to get on that stage and get all nostalgic," Pope said in a statement.
Pope's most recent single is "Take You Home," out earlier this year.
Following her victory on Season 3 of NBC's The Voice, her 2013 full length debut, "Frame By Frame" included the single "Wasting All These Tears." In 2016, she teamed with Chris Young for the number one hit "Think Of You" and garnered a 2017 GRAMMY nod in the category of Best Country Duo / Group Performance. Pope released "Summer," an EP in 2016.

CD reviews for Cassadee Pope
By all accounts, Cassadee Pope has led a glitzy life. She was the first female winner of "The Voice." She then had a record deal at 17, a spot on a sold-out tour with Fall Out Boy at 18 and eventually garnered a Grammy nomination.
Her discography of country-pop is generally glitzy, too. Well, not this time. "Rise and Shine" is a stripped-down acoustic effort by the 30-year-old singer that is thoughtfully introspective without being brooding or too deliberate. ...
Although Cassadee Pope's "Stage" album includes a few too many pop-country songs for comfort, it closes with a true winner. The ballad "I've Been Good," which turns a customary greeting response on its head, is a true show-stopper. She's been 'good,' yes; good at drinkin' whiskey and nearly everything except getting over a breakup. With its drinking song lyrical reference and sincere vocal sadness, Pope earns her wings as a fine country singer. ...
Cassadee Pope's new release is officially called "Summer EP." But upon a full listen, one wonders if the working title may have been "The Road More Often Traveled." To say that the third season "The Voice" winner played it safe is a bit of an understatement. She penned three of the songs, including the obvious title track and the more impactful, autobiographical "Alien." Elsewhere, the songs are about a summer fling, mean people and appreciating your loved ones. ...
