And the Award for Best Tour Prank Goes to…Cassadee Pope!


It’s not often that you see Chris Young stumble during a performance. Nope; this No. 1 singer-songwriter and Grammy nominee is as cool and composed as they come. That is until his duet partner and tour mate, Cassadee Pope, puts her prankster pants on.

The colleagues turned friends have been touring together all year on Young’s I’m Comin’ Over Tour, all the while their song “Think of You” climbed the charts to the top, earned them a CMA nod, and scored the pair a 2017 Grammy Award nomination. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and the tour is making its final stops this weekend. However, Pope was not about to leave this all behind without getting the last laugh.

Last night, Pope enlisted the help of Young’s Tour Manager, Bill Cracknell, to play a prank on the headliner while on stage. Clad in a tight dress that few women can pull off, Cracknell took the stage in place of Pope for her entrance during “Think of You.” The result was Young putting down his microphone and throwing his body on the stage in hysterics. Lucky for the audience members, Pope did come out (wearing the same dress and wearing it a whole lot better…sorry Bill!) and gave the fans a perfect performance of the acclaimed song.
