Chris Young, Cassadee Pope Earn Video Shootout Hall of Fame Spot With ‘Think of You’
Congratulations are in order for Chris Young and Cassadee Pope: The music video for their song "Think of You" has won four Video Shootouts in a row and, thus, earned a spot in The Boot's Video Shootout Hall of Fame.
Young and Pope began their run to the Video Shootout Hall of Fame by narrowly defeating two-week Shootout champion Reba McEntire and her “Just Like Them Horses” video, as well as Maren Morris and her “My Church” clip. They earned nearly 52 percent of the votes that week. The following week, Home Free and Dan + Shay put up a good fight, but Young and Pope earned a second victory against their “California Country” and “From the Ground Up” clips, respectively.
In their third week in the Video Shootout, Young and Pope earned nearly 84 percent of votes -- a decisive victory -- versus Justin Moore‘s “You Look Like I Need a Drink” and the Scott Brothers‘ “Hold On.” To get their fourth and final victory, the two beat out Kip Moore (“Running for You”) and Chase Bryant (“Little Bit of You”).
Young says that he decided to ask Pope to sing with him on “Think of You” after watching her perform at an acoustic radio station event.
“She’s definitely somebody that can sing her butt off,” Young tells The Boot of Pope. “And that was really the defining thing in me wanting to ask her do a duet: She has an amazing voice. She’s an amazing artist.”
