Cassadee Pope Makes History With Debut Single

Cassadee Pope WATT

As we have recently reported, Big Machine recording artist Cassadee Pope‘s debut single, “Wasting All These Tears,” was RIAA certified as Platinum for moving one million units. Achieving Platinum status is a feat in itself, but, if you are familiar with Cassadee, you know that this young artist constantly strives for more in her budding country music career.

Well, this comes as no exception, as Cassadee not only received high honors from RIAA, but also broke a country music record in the process. With Cassadee’s certification, she becomes the first solo female country artist to achieve a Platinum-certified debut single since Taylor Swift‘s 2006 release of “Tim McGraw.”

Congratulations to Cassadee on leaving her footprint on history! You are doing country music proud and are representing female artists beautifully!

Cassadee’s single, “Wasting All These Tears,” is currently approaching RIAA platinum certification, as it has far exceeded the five hundred thousand copies distributed mark.

Congratulations to Cassadee on another accomplishment in country music! We anticipate reporting on the official platinum certification of her album in the very near future!

One of our favorite country stars, Jake Owen, has another number one single on his hands! “Anywhere With You” is the fourth consecutive song from his Barefoot Blue Jean Night album to top the charts.

Owen’s fastest rising single to date, the song is number one on both the Mediabase and Billboard country charts. The track is also record breaking. It has garnered the biggest weekly audience sum with 43.8 million impressions since the Billboard Country Airplay Chart switched to audience based rankings in 2005.

“Anywhere With You” has also been certified gold by the RIAA. It follows the success of the double platinum “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”, the platinum “Alone With You”, and the gold “The One That Got Away.”

Jake shared:

“I’m incredibly amazed at what the Barefoot album has done. To have four #1’s in a row … I’m so thankful to country radio and my fans. This wouldn’t have happened without you and I can’t wait to share new music with everyone!”

The Grammy nominated singer has teamed up with producer, Joey Moi, for his upcoming studio album. The lead single is expected to be released this August. We can’t wait!

Congratulations, Jake, on another number 1!

Owen is currently on the road with Jason Aldean for his Night Train Tour.
