Cassadee Pope Gets Personal on New Song, ’11′

Cassadee Pope has shared another song, ’11,’ from her upcoming ‘Frame by Frame‘ album. The autobiographical tune, she says, explores one of the most painful parts of her life — her parents’ divorce.

“As a kid, when you go through something like your parents’ divorce, weird things go through your mind and you have no control,” the singer explains. “’11’ has me opening up probably more than I’ve ever done before.”

Pope, who wrote the song with veteran songwriter Nathan Chapman, says she is using her new solo career to reveal parts of her own life she hasn’t been able to share, until now.

“As a songwriter, I’ve always loved to tell stories,” she tells Rolling Stone magazine. “But in my band, it was always about what would make sense for a band to put out. It’s hard to release a song that’s so personal to me when there’s four other guys in the band that had completely different upbringings. Now I can get really personal.”

Pope, who had a blossoming pop rock career before winning Season 3 of ‘The Voice’ on Blake Shelton‘s team, insists her former coach didn’t push her to switch to country music. “He didn’t make me [sing country music]. People misconstrue that,” says the 24-year-old singer. “He never pushed me to do anything, and that’s what I loved about him. Blake picks really unique artists who already have a vision for themselves. He just wants to be the platform that helps them get to where they need to be.”

‘Frame by Frame’ will be released on Oct. 8. Listen to ’11′ here.
