Sadly, the singer-songwriter admits that finding her voice wasn’t easy. Perspectively, that is hard to believe since she has transcended musical genres several times throughout her career. However, she attributes this hurdle to several different things. “The pauses between projects, the songs that came out of nowhere, that were different from what I had been doing and that had missed the mark – those were decisions that were happening during a time where I didn’t know myself.” Additionally, Pope goes on to share, “I was really insecure. I was looking to everybody else to let me know what I should do.”
Luckily, Cassadee Pope was able to overcome her insecurities. She tells fans that, “There are songs that hopefully will stitch you back up and make you feel good and help send you on your way into a happier headspace.” Listen to Rise and Shine wherever you stream music today.
