Republic Nashville artist Cassadee Pope releases her new single “I Am Invincible” this week (July 24) across all digital retailers and to radio with an official impact date of Sept. 8. The power anthem was written by Brett Boyett and Nash Overstreet and produced by Julian Raymond.
Pope said the first time she heard the song it hit her right in the heart. “I was thinking of all the things I have gone through over the last few years that could have very well influenced me to step away from making music. At the same time, I was reminded of how proud I should be of myself for sticking to my true passion. I have my fans to thank for that with their encouragement, support and really cheering me on at a time of uncertainty. Thinking about all of those emotions really takes this song to another level when I’m performing it and I hope ‘I Am Invincible’ gives others their confidence too.”
She adds, “The song is for those people who have gone through a really tough experience. What I love about this song is it’s very empowering. The song encourages people to get through tough things and be stronger because of it. But there’s a vulnerability to it that I think is really important. It’s ok to not be ok, and it’s ok to be wounded.”
Her parents’ divorce when she was only eleven proved to be a difficult time for the songstress. Pope shares, “I thought of my mom when I first heard this song. It was a huge struggle for her but she taught my sister and I how to be self sufficient, how to be empowered and how to be independent. I learned so much from that experience because of her and how she handled it.”
The singer is offering up a chance for fans to participate in the song’s official lyric video. Fans can register here.
The Florida native’s debut single, “Wasting All These Tears,” sold over a million copies and was featured on her debut country album, Frame By Frame. She came onto the national stage after winning the third season of NBC’s The Voice in 2012, making her the first female winner of the singing competition.
