Cassadee Pope: CMT Next Women of Country Live

Enjoy Her Exclusive Performance of "Summer"

From day one, singer Cassadee Pope knew how to put on a show.

In this new interview with CMT Next Women of Country Live, the Florida native talks about the early days when she first realized her calling and the living room concerts that followed.

“I would tell my mom, ‘Sit down. I’m gonna play a show for you!’” she said. “I would just perform. That was always something I loved to do. There was never a question of me doing anything else.”

Pope lists her mom as one of her biggest influences, but she also names one special superstar. Check out the interview clip and enjoy her exclusive performance of “Summer.”
