Interview with Mike Gentile 

We're working on bringing you lots more fun interviews

so stay tuned!! :) 

CassIsBadass got the inside scoop on what Cassadee Pope was like when she was younger! HUGE thanks to Cassadee’s Mom ‘Mama Pope’ for answering a few questions.

Here’s our interview with Cass’s mom:

1. What were the girls like growing up?
They were both very sweet little girls. Cassadee believe it or not up until about 4 or 5 years old was really shy. Once she outgrew the shyness though she was little miss personality and everyone’s best friend.  Ashley was very outgoing from the moment she could talk and she talked A LOT! I think she got her name on the board for talking every single day of her Kindergarten school year. When they were younger Cass was more the tom boy and Ash was more the girly girl.

2. What’s your favorite story from when Cassadee & Ashley were younger?
I don’t really have a “story” that came to mind but a few little memories just flashed back when I read this question. Ashley called Santa Clause Santa CLOSET for the longest time. Oh, and a bathing suit was a bathing SOUP ha-ha! She’s going to kill me!
 Cassadee spoke every word with perfecT diction, her T”s especially and it was THE cutest thing to hear her talk.  

3. What is your funniest baby memory of Cassadee?
She would climb on EVERYTHING. Ashley had a collection of precious memories and Cass would climb up on the dresser and knock them all down on a daily basis. One time I couldn’t find her, I was calling her name and she wasn’t answering me. She had climbed up the tree outside in our yard and was hiding. She thought it was funny, at the time I did not. But now looking back, it makes me laugh!

4. Do you remember the first time Cassadee sang in front of an audience, can you tell me about it? What song did she sing, How old was she etc?
She was about 5 years old and she sang a beautiful song called “Little Flowers” in a talent competition. When the winner was announced and they said Cassadee Pope she looked at me and said “Me?!” as if she heard the wrong name. It was precious :)

5. You must be so proud of everything she has accomplished, of all those things, which one stands out the most?
I am very proud of her for everything she has accomplished in her career as well as personally. She is a wonderful daughter and I could not be more proud of the amazing young lady she has become.

6. How do you feel about Cassadee being on a bus full of just boys?
ha-ha those boys are like her brothers so I am fine with it. Besides, have you SEEN her left hook? ;)

7. How do you cope with Cassadee being away from home for so long?
It’s tough and we miss her terribly. We talk at least once a day even if it’s just a quick text to say hi. I watch a lot of you tube videos of their performances which is the next best thing to being there. And as much as I miss her when she is gone, the fact that she is out there fulfilling her dream makes me very happy.

8. What is your favorite Hey Monday song?
Oh wow,  I love them ALL!  If I had to choose one right now it would probably be “Wish You Were Here”.

9. What are your thoughts on the CassIsBadass fan source?
It’s amazing. Kristy you are doing such a fantastic job! I know you put a lot of long hours into this and I want you to know much we appreciate everything you do.

10. If there’s anything else you’d like to add or comment on for Cassadee’s fans, here’s the spot to do it in.
To the fans..THANK YOU so much for all of the love and support you give to Cassadee and the rest of Hey Monday. I know that she appreciates each and every one of you. She loves what she does and she wouldn’t be able to do it without you. <3
