The award-nominated singer-songwriter also wanted to reveal the name of her new album while on the show.
“It’s called ‘Thrive,'” Pope shared. “And I’m so honored to be revealing that on your show. I’m so proud of it.

Pope Wrote “What the Stars See” During a Zoom Call
The song that she performed on the show was called “What the Stars See,” which Pope said she wrote during the pandemic on her first-ever Zoom songwriting call.”
“I was sitting on our deck and it was a starry night here in Nashville, and I just looked up and I was like, ‘man, the stars can really see everything,'” Pope shared. “It just reminded me of all the times I’ve been through a breakup or lost a friend, of all those people who are not in your lives anymore, you used to know everything about them and all of a sudden, you know nothing.”
She added, “It just kind of popped into my head, ‘What the Stars See,’ that title, and I’m really proud of how it turned out.”
The sound of the song definitely includes Pope’s pop-punk influence mixed with her country background.
