Cassadee Pope’s FRAME BY FRAME debuts in the upper echelon on the Billboard sales charts – #1 Top Country Albums and #9 all-genre Top Albums – with sales of over 43,000. The petite powerhouse is the only female artist currently in the Top 10 on the chart with her debut project. Both the full Republic Nashville album and Cassdee’s debut single, “Wasting All These Tears,” have previously ascended into the #1 spot on the iTunes Country charts.
Produced by esteemed musician Dann Huff, along with contributions from Nathan Chapman, Max Martin and Shellback, critics have praised the 11-song project:
CMA Close-Up calls Cassadee, “…an artist with that rarest of assets: outstanding chops tempered by interpretive sensitivity.”
” … A mix of poppy anthems and insightful heartbreakers, all of them rich in lyrical imagery,” exalts Country Weekly.
Giving the project 3.5 out of 4 stars, USA TODAY insists that “11” is “…unforgettably poignant.”
“…searingly emotional country tunes…,” according to Billboard.
“A powerful vocalist blending the force of Kelly Clarkson with the attitude of Miranda Lambert and the melodic ease of Carrie Underwood, Cassadee’s sound is uniquely country, pop and rock,” states Great American Country.
Yahoo! insists, “…she could even end up being the female country best-seller that the industry has been looking for … it’s undeniable that ‘Frame By Frame’ does both the genre as well as the artist behind the work enough justice to warrant many future releases.”
In celebration of the release, Cassadee performed the lead single, which is nearing 500,000 downloads sold to date, on TODAY (NBC) and Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan (VH-1). The talented vocalist also sat in with legendary band The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (NBC) to preview more of the new music. High-profile outlets Rolling Stone, The Hollywood Reporter and American Songwriter introduced select tracks leading up to last week’s release.
This month she will wrap up a coveted opening slot on Rascal Flatts’ LIVE & LOUD Tour, where the superstar trio additionally invited Cassadee to perform during their set each night.
Until 10/20, fans can vote for Cassadee multiple times a day as she vies for VEVO’s elite LIFT program.
