Cassadee Pope Releases New Song with Lindsay Ell & Karen Fairchild

Cassadee Pope is joined by Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Lindsay Ell on brand new song, “What The Stars See”. Available now, May 7th, on all streaming platforms, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new track.

“What the Stars See”, written by Pope along with Jake Rose and Lindsay Rimes, and produced by Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects and Karen Fairchild, is an explosive track that perfectly expresses the blend of musical style and backgrounds of the different collaborators involved from production to vocals. The song describes the desire to be able to peek into the life of someone who used to be a part of your life but no longer is.

On the story behind the song, Pope shares: “I was inspired to write ‘What The Stars See’ after sitting outside one night looking up at the stars, curious what their perspective might be looking down on us…It made me think back to times in my life when I had just come out of a relationship but still felt so connected to the other person. I imagined having the superpower to be among the stars and observe, from their perspective, an ex moving on with their life (or not).” 

That ‘or not’ aspect demonstrates the tone of the track. While the idea could be interpreted to be sorrowful and having a great sense of missing someone, the way that Pope, Fairchild, and Ell present the song as the powerhouse female vocalists that they are is a much edgier ‘just wondering’ take on the story behind the song. 

“I wanna see what the stars see // Are you good, are you sad, are you missin’ me? // Are you a little bit lonely? // I wanna know what you’re feeling underneath // That midnight, moonlight, heartbreak sky // Wishin I could read your mind // You left me in the dark and wherever you are, I wanna be // Tonight, I wanna see what the stars see”

Wednesday night, CMT did their part in changing the conversation about women being played in country music and the lack thereof.  While the night specifically honored Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Carrie Underwood and the ladies of Little Big Town, Karen Fairchild, and Kimberly Schlapman, Fairchild used her platform during her acceptance speech to acknowledge something that we already knew at New York Country Swag, there is a TON of incredible female artists out there.

We have worked with several of the artists that Fairchild named including Jillian JacquelineAbby AndersonTenille TownesRunaway June, and Natalie Stovall.  Below is a playlist of our favorite songs from all 35 of the rising female artists that were named during that epic moment which you can check out here as well as some other amazing females that you should be listening to.
