Cassie’s Kick-ass Country: August Recap

Cassie is trucking along as we go into her third month of the podcast and this may be the best bunch yet. She has exclusive content, artists you’ll know if you listened to beginning episodes, and many laughs. Be sure to tune in every Tuesday morning to hear more music, interviews, and to learn more about country music.

Let’s recap August:

EP. 11: Courtney Cole

With Cassie’s biggest interview to date, Courtney Cole discusses her greatest success, worst failures, and The Rockumentary. Her episodes have taken the internet by storm, showing, the ups, the downs, and most importantly, vulnerability. She isn’t afraid to put it all out on the table and Cassie cuts right to the chase. This episode goes far past the songs and digs right into the feels. Cassie also has a surprise in store for you with a new song never released before, “The Whole World.” This song is a favorite of most, as she has featured a clip of it on her Rockumentary. Listen to the interview with Courtney below.

Featured songs of Courtney Cole:

“Love On Tap”

“The Whole World”

“For The Love of Me” 

EP. 12: Morgan Myles

One of #CMchat’s favorite artists, Morgan Myles, chats on her front porch with Cassie as a beautiful Nashville day goes on behind them. She has been compared to Drake White, bringing you soul and artistry in each of her songs. Her new EP is on its way and we can’t contain our excitement! Listen to the interview with Morgan below.

Brett Eldredge’s new album and two songs we feature:

“Haven’t Met You”

“No Stopping You”

EP. 13: SmithField

…and we get a group that Cassie has been talking nonstop about on the podcast for an interview! Our favorite song is “Hey Whiskey” and they have a new single out “When You’re Gone” is a smash too. Can’t believe this duo and their talent! Starting off as Sirius XM The Highway Finds, Smithfield has created quite a fan base. Listen to the full interview with SmithField below.

5 New Songs I Can’t Get Out of My Head:

Brandon Ray “Ends of the Earth”

Kelsea Ballerini “Unapologetically”

Seth Ennis “Look At You”

Dustin Lynch “Love Me Or Leave Me Alone”

Danielle Bradbery “Human Diary”

 EP. 14: Chelsea Gill

Cassie sits down with new artist Chelsea Gill. They talk new music, like her new single “Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful” telling the story about a mother/daughter relationship. Urging young girls to know who they are and realize that they are beautiful in their own skin. To not be envious of other women and to build each other up. The music video is breathtaking! Her song “What Kinda Trouble” is also featured and it sheds light as to who Chelsea Gill is as an artist. Listen to the interview and music from Chelsea Gill below.

Songs I Can’t Get Out of My Head:

Brett Young (Cover) “Hallelujah”

Riley Green “Bury Me In Dixie”

Jacob Bryant “Rain”

Cassie sits down with Bryan Kent a week before his event Touchdowns and Tunes with headliner Cody Johnson. Bryan Kent not only put this event together, but he also performed in it as well. His song “Tennesse Neon” is a fan favorite and it’s one of our favorites as well.

As a celebration of Taylor Swift coming out with a new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” Cassie throws it back to country Taylor Swift, with her curls, acoustic guitar, and innocence. These oldies are some of Cassie’s jams.
