Episode 9 - Cassadee Pope
Grammy-nominated, Platinum-certified singer-songwriter Cassadee Pope first gained acclaim as lead singer for the pop-punk group Hey Monday, then rose to fame as the winner of Season 3 of The Voice, before transforming into a #1-selling country artist. Throughout her long and winding career, Pope has never stopped pushing herself creatively. For this special International Women's Day episode of VERSED, ASCAP’s Beth Brinker sat down with Pope in Nashville to talk about a whole range of things: from punk to country music, what she does to stay focused and balanced with her busy career and (what else?) the art, craft and joy of songwriting. PLUS: from the ASCAP archives, hit songwriter Priscilla Renea explains why staying true to your authentic creative self can be great for your career.
