Cassadee Pope‘s debut country album will be hitting stores on October 8th. In anticipation of the album release, CMT will be airing a doc-u-series, Frame By Frame, all about Cassadee.

Frame By Frame will premiere on CMT on Friday, October 4th, at 10:00pm EST/9:00pm CST. Make sure to tune in and/or set your DVRs for a chance to get a glimpse into the process of Cassadee recording her first country album and all the promotion that goes along with the project.
Andrew Pope (no relation to Cassadee, The Voice fans!) is a country musician from Alabama who isn’t afraid to dig deep into the roots of country music in his blooming career. Andrew’s first two singles, If Waylon Could See Us Now and Rowdy Side, were released in 2012. Andrew, who was signed to MillTown Music, released his first full album at the end of 2012. Andrew hopes to release his sophomore album in 2014 and we wanted to make sure that our Keepin’ It Country readers were able to meet Andrew and get to know the artist behind the music before his next big project. So, without further adieu, we introduce you all to Andrew Pope!
As you all know from a story we posted last week, Cassadee Pope is leaking tracks from her debut album, “Frame By Frame,” every two weeks. Now, Cassadee has released the titles of the eleven songs on her album, due out in stores on October 8th. The track list is as follows:
1. Good Times; 2. Champagne; 3. Wasting All These Tears; 4. I Wish I Could Break Your Heart; 5. Everybody Sings; 6. You Hear A Song; 7. This Car; 8. One Song Away; 9. Easier To Lie; 10. 11; 11. Proved You Wrong
Cassadee Pope recently sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss her up and coming country music career. In the article, Cassadee discusses the overwhelming interest of people regarding why Cassadee chose to travel down the country music path, rather than continuing down the path she previously trekked.
For those of you who don’t know, Cassadee was previously involved with a band called Hey Monday, which is best known as a former opening act for Fall Out Boy and Yellowcard, as well as part of the 2010 Warped Tour bill. Now, since her Season 3 win on NBC’s The Voice, Cassadee has been exploring her country music options, ultimately choosing to sign with a major Nashville label (Big Machine) and record a country album (Frame by Frame, due out on October 8, 2013). Cassadee explains to Rolling Stone that her decision to embark on a country music career was personal, as the genre is allowing her to tell stories, get personal, and experience a new-found sense of vulnerability.
Winner of NBC’s “The Voice”, Cassadee Pope, will be releasing her debut album, “Frame By Frame,” on October 8th. In order to get fans excited for the release, Cassadee has taken song leaking into her own hands. Every two weeks until the October 8th release, Cassadee will release an additional track from “Frame to Frame” on iTunes! The first of the many tracks to be leaked, “You Hear a Song,” is now on iTunes for download.
Head over to iTunes and get your sneak peek of Cassadee’s first solo project! And, remember to check back every two weeks for another new track off of “Frame to Frame”!
Cassadee Pope wanted her fans to continue to stay an important part of her musical journey. That’s why she had her fans help her choose the official cover artwork for her debut country album on Republic Nashville. Earlier this week, Cassadee revealed the final choice for “Frame By Frame” – which you can check out below!
About the reveal and her debut album, she shared:
“My fans are the ones who gave me this incredible opportunity to create Country music and I want to ensure they are a part of the process as much as possible. I’ve received great feedback on my new music while visiting Country radio stations each week and while out on the Rascal Flatts tour, so I also wanted to make sure the fans had input on the artwork for ‘Frame By Frame.’”
Cassadee’s album will be released on October 7th, 2013. Are you excited for her first solo country album? Will you be picking up a copy?

Country superstar trio Rascal Flatts made headlines last month when they announced their Pennsylvania date with the legendary Journey. Due to popular demand of the once-in-a-lifetime show, the groups decided to add a second date in Atlantic City, New Jersey on August 4th at Boardwalk Hall.
Their first date together will be held on August 1st in Hershey, PA. The Voice winner Cassadee Pope will open both shows.
Tickets for their Atlantic City show will go-onsale through Ticketmaster this Friday, May 10th at 10 am EST.
Rascal Flatts and Journey first performed together on the 2012 CMT Music Awards when they closed the show with Journey’s megahit “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The two groups also participated in a special edition of the critically-acclaimed CMT Crossroads series during Super Bowl XLVII in 2013.
The Band Perry topped the Billboard Country Chart this week with their sophomore album, Pioneer. With 129,000 units sold, the sibling trio also landed in second place on the Billboard 200 chart and were just shy of Justin Timberlake’s sales of The 20/20 Experience by 10,000 copies.
TBP were ecstatic and grateful to hear the big news as they took to Facebook & Twitter:
Wow!!! #Pioneer debuts at #1 Top Country Album AND #2 @Billboard 200!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
The album’s lead single, “Better Dig Two,” hit number one earlier this year. On track for seemingly similar success is the current single, “Done,” which jumped from 20 to 7 on the Country Digital Sales chart.
If you have not already, make sure you buy your copy of Pioneer! We promise you will not be disappointed.
TBP will also be hitting the road this summer with Rascal Flatts and Cassadee Pope. That is a show you do not want to miss! Visit www.thebandperry.com for more info and tour dates.
Congratulations to The Band Perry! We are huge fans ourselves and are very excited for them.
