Cassadee Pope is a GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-certified singer-songwriter who recently released her ninth career album, THRIVE on October 15, 2021. The album's first single, "What The Stars See" was co-written by Cassadee and features Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) and Lindsay Ell in a raucous anthem about longing to see what a past partner is doing since going separate ways. Cassadee performed the track on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where she also revealed the title of her latest album, THRIVE. This latest project is a career milestone for Cassadee—she wrote or co-wrote every song, blending influences from her pop-punk days fronting the band Hey Monday, and the country music storytelling and songwriter that she now calls home. Last year, she released her first acoustic solo album, RISE AND SHINE which was coproduced by Cassadee alongside Todd Lombardo. The collection of original songs followed her critically acclaimed album, STAGES (2019) featuring hit singles "Take You Home," "One More Red Light," and "If My Heart Had a Heart.”
From fronting rock band, Hey Monday, to winning Season 3 of "The Voice" (2012) and releasing her #1 debut album FRAME BY FRAME (2013), Cassadee has effortlessly re-arranged the lines of Country and Pop. She has experienced tremendous success throughout her career, with the Platinum-selling single, "Wasting All These Tears," being awarded with "Breakthrough Video of the Year" at the 2014 CMT Music Awards and her #1 hit "Think of You" with Chris Young receiving a 2017 Grammy nomination for "Best Country Duo/Group." Cassadee has performed on the TODAY show and has been featured in countless notable publications, including PEOPLE Magazine. Cassadee has toured extensively, joining legendary artists Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley, playing London's iconic O2 Arena during C2C: Country to Country Festival, and earning the distinction of the only Country artist to perform at 2018's Warped Tour and joined Maren Morris on her GIRL: THE WORLD TOUR in 2019. Cassadee continued to tour throughout the spring of 2019 as the headliner of the "2019 CMT Next Women of Country Tour," which brought the franchise outside of the U.S. for the first time ever.

Tomlinson was born in Blytheville, Arkansas. He was raised in Kennett, Missouri. In his junior year of high school, Tomlinson reached the finals for “You Can Be a Star”, a television talent show on The Nashville Network (now Spike TV), in which Trent placed second.
After numerous deals cut short due to labels that went bankrupt or were being taken over, Tomlinson landed a songwriting deal with Cal IV Entertainment. Tomlinson’s debut single, “Drunker Than Me”, was released in late 2005, followed by his album Country Is My Rock. Two additional singles were also released from the album: “One Wing in the Fire” and “Just Might Have Her Radio On”, the former is a song about Tomlinson’s father. Tomlinson also co-wrote the track “Missing Missouri” on Sara Evans’ 2005 album Real Fine Place, “Why Can’t I Leave Her Alone” on George Strait’s 2006 album It Just Comes Natural.
On December 15, 2008 it was announced that Tomlinson would be the second artist signed to Lyric Street’s subsidiary label, Carolwood Records. His fourth single, “That’s How It Still Oughta Be,” made its chart debut in January 2009. That song fell from the charts in May 2009 and was replaced by “Henry Cartwright’s Produce Stand”. A third single, “Angels Like Her” (a re-recording of a song on his debut), was released on October 26, 2009, shortly before the closure of Carolwood. Tomlinson subsequently returned to Lyric Street before parting ways in March 2010. All three songs were included on an EP titled A Guy Like Me.
Tomlinson released “Man Without a Woman” via Skyville Records in 2011 and did not release an album despite the single charting. In 2014, Parmalee released the single “Close Your Eyes”, which went to #1 which Tomlinson co-wrote. Trent recently dropped his new album “That’s What’s Working Right Now."
Most recently Trent’s penned a massive hit for Brett Young “In Case You Didn’t Know” which has gone platinum and spent multiple weeks at #1 on the Country Music Billboard Chart.
