Cassadee Pope Shares Story of Parents’ Divorce in ’11’
Cassadee Pope has shared another song from her upcoming ‘Frame by Frame’ album. ‘The Voice’ winner has released ’11’ to iTunes. It’s the story of her parents’ divorce, and Pope tells it like she’s reading pages from her diary.
Nathan Chapman helped her write the autobiographical song. Pope says she opens up more than she ever has on the mid-tempo banjo and acoustic-filled recording. “As a kid, when you go through something like your parents’ divorce, weird things go through your mind and you have no control,” she explains.
The chorus goes: “I was a little too young and a little too dumb / To ever think the day would come / When Dad would drive away and take his love with him / So I grew up fast in a whole new world / Waved goodbye to that little girl I can see her now / Innocent and seven I wish I had never turned 11.”
’11’ is now available at iTunes. The full ‘Frame by Frame’ album will be available on Oct. 8 and will include Pope’s current single, ‘Wasting All These Tears.’ The winner of the third season of ‘The Voice’ will appear on ‘America’s Got Talent’ on Aug. 28.
