Chris Young and Cassadee Pope Celebrate “Think of You” Success

chris young and cassadee pope

Duet partners Chris Young and Cassadee Pope teamed up again last night to celebrate the chart-topping success of their RIAA Gold certified single, “Think Of You,” during a No. 1 party from Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame. Hundreds of music industry fans joined the pair, along with Young’s (BMI) co-writers Corey Crowder (ASCAP) and Josh Hoge (SESAC). “Think Of You” marks Young’s eighth single to hit the top of the charts and Pope’s very first No. 1 single as an artist.

During the festivities, Young was also surprised with the news that his latest album, I’m Comin’ Over, featuring back-to-back seventh and eighth No. 1 singles “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think Of You,” has achieved RIAA Gold certification. The accolade is made even more special in that Young took his first turn as co-producer on this latest album, alongside Corey Crowder.

“One of my favorite things about ‘Think Of You’ is having Cassadee Pope on it, this song would not be the same without her,” said Young. He addressed the room sharing “from the bottom of my heart, for this song and everything that is going on in my career, you change our lives on a daily basis and I’m truly blessed to get to do what I do.”

Young and Pope will team up again next month as they embark on the fall leg of his headlining tour. Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” will span 25 shows running September through the end of the year. CASE Construction Equipment will join the tour as an official sponsor. Special guests joining Young on tour in September and October are Dan + Shay, with Dustin Lynch coming on board in November and December. Pope will return for all dates after providing direct support during the first leg of the tour. Tickets can be purchased at aeglive.com and ChrisYoungCountry.com.

“Thank you all for believing in me, the two of us as duet partners, and in ‘Think Of You,’” said Pope. “Chris, you have no idea what you’ve done for my career and for my spirit.” Her recently released Summer EP was also produced by Crowder.

Over the weekend Chris Young surprised his duet partner, Cassadee Pope, with a Gold plaque for their chart-topping single “Think Of You.” That same night Young thrilled the sold-out crowds at Nissan Stadium during CMA Music Festival in Nashville when he welcomed Pope to the stage for a sizzling performance of their hit duet.

Written by Young, Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, “Think Of You” reached No. 1 in only fifteen weeks and is certified Gold by the RIAA for sales exceeding half a million copies. The song is from Young’s ACM-nominated album, I’m Comin’ Over, and marks the Grammy-nominated singer’s eighth chart topping track. His latest single, “Sober Saturday Night” featuring Vince Gill is climbing the charts now. Pope, whose new EP Summer is out now, will join Young this fall for his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” along with Dan + Shay and Dustin Lynch.

City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game Hits a Home Run in It’s 26th Year

It was a homerun for the 26th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, which saw more than 30 music and sports stars step up to the plate to strike out cancer at First Tennessee Park in Nashville. Team iHeart Country and Team Opry ended in a tie game with a final score of 18 to 18.

Country Music icon Trisha Yearwood led with the national anthem before Lauren Alaina, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, The Bobby Bones Show, Bucky Covington, Jessie James Decker, Charles Esten, Nick Fradiani, Vince Gill, Mickey Guyton, Jonathan Jackson, Chris Lane, LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, A Thousand Horses, Tristan McIntosh, Bret Michaels, David Nail, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn, Jamie Lynn Spears, Mark Wills, Brett Young and former Major League Baseball pitcher Barry Zito took to the field to strike out cancer. The Crook and Chase Countdown’s Lorianne Crook and WSM’s Bill Cody emceed and offered play-by-plays for the thousands of fans in attendance.

The fan favorite game didn’t disappoint, as the bats came alive for both teams throughout the high scoring game.  Memorable moments on the field included multiple inside the park homeruns, double plays, and some crazy antics leading to tying the score up at 18 in the final inning.

The City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, a 26-year tradition during CMA Music Festival, celebrated its first quarter century in Nashville as it honored the game’s founder, music industry veteran Bruce Hinton. The “Champion of Hope Award” was presented to Hinton by President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group, Scott Borchetta, for his significant contributions to the event over its quarter century history.

While neither team can walk away with bragging rights this year, it is the patients at City of Hope who are the real winners with more than $200,000 raised for cancer research.

Thousands of fans packed the ballpark to catch the action and antics on the field. Before the first pitch was thrown, the crowds cheered wildly as 8-year old City of Hope patient Aaron Yniguez, who received lifesaving treatment for acute myeloid leukemia more than three years ago at City of Hope, and his genetically matched, life-saving stem cell donor Yolanda Nava, a Southwest® Airlines Employee from Arlington, Texas, traveled to meet on the pitcher’s mound for the very first time.

Bone marrow transplants offer a second chance for people with life-threatening blood cancers and other hematologic malignancies. Since 1976, more than 13,000 patients from virtually every state and dozens of countries have undergone bone marrow, cord blood or stem cell transplants at City of Hope. Support from the Nashville community and its country music artists directly benefit City of Hope’s mission to find cures for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

Those unable to attend the game can still support City of Hope. A variety of unique merchandise including game-worn jerseys signed by the players, and experiences including meet-and-greets with the hottest artists, will be available for bid at Cohauctions.com. The proceeds will benefit City of Hope’s mission to eradicate cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
