Chris Young and Cassadee Pope Duet 35,000 Feet in the Air
Chris Young and Cassadee Pope helped celebrate a major milestone for Southwest Airlines on Monday (Feb. 22). The airline has spent 30 years flying into Nashville International Airport, and the media day turned into a concert in the sky with a performance by Young and Pope.
After a concert in an airport hanger with Maren Morris and A Thousand Horses, a new plane design was unveiled to pay homage to the state of Tennessee. Then, attendees boarded the plane for a quick trip to Memphis and an in-flight performance by Young and Pope.
Standing near the cockpit, the two singers held microphones and sang their current duet "Think of You" as passengers looked on and snapped photos and took videos on their phones 35,000 feet in the air. Not their typical venue, Young and Pope impressed, trading verses and harmonizing on the chorus.
Young announced his latest tour with Pope in November, raving about his duet partner.
“When I heard her sing live I knew she would be the perfect person to sing on ‘Think of You’ and I was hoping too that we could hit the road together at some point once the new record releases,” he said.
“Think of You” is the second single released from Young’s fifth studio album, I’m Comin’ Over, which was released this past November. Young earned his seventh career No. 1 single with the album's title track. His album, which he co-produced, also went to No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart in its first week.
