Cassadee Pope Talks Leaving Country for Pop-Punk

Cassadee Pope

Cassadee Pope talked with Rolling Stone:

Pope didn’t make a conscious choice to depart country music as much as she decided to return to a genre where she felt most at home. But it’s a decision that was validated when some of the genre’s most publicized moments of late involved racism or anti-trans rhetoric (more on that, and the Brittney Aldean “insurrection Barbie” incident later). Deleting those radio-programmer photos, and any need to sacrifice herself for an industry that only awards one chosen white woman a year, at best, was just the catharsis she needed.
