Cass Hopetoun & Blake Dantier Perform at Australia's 1st Drive-In Concert
In May 2020, Cass and Blake supported Casey Donovan at 'Drive-In Entertainment's first concert. The morning of the event, they also spoke to Sunrise about Hopetoun's debut single 'Shots' and performed the song live on air. 


“If the first few months of the year are anything to go by, Cass Hopetoun is set for a breakthrough 2020.”  The Music Network


“If ‘Shots’ is what Friday nights are like in the Blue Mountains, then the locals should be anything but blue. With a natural flair for the dramatic and the vocal chops to back it up and then some, Hopetoun is the one to watch in 2020.”

2020 has been a breakthrough year for Cass Hopetoun.  In January she won the Tamworth Songwriter’s Association talent quest before releasing her debut single ‘Shots’ independently in March. In April she signed to Compass Bros Records. In May she opened for Casey Donovan at Australia's first ever pandemic drive-in concert, performed live on Channel 7's Sunrise and ‘Shots’ reached #4 on The Music Network Country Airplay Chart. In September Cass’s follow up single ‘Typical Bride’ peaked at #1 on that same chart. Typical Bride also hit the #1 spot on 2TM’s Top 20 and #3 on KIX Country’s Hottest 20 charts. Both singles were added to full rotation on CMC/CMT respectively and to Spotify and Apple Music playlists.


Cass stumbled upon her talent for song when a friend “dragged her along to the choir” as a young student in Sydney’s Blue Mountains. She learned piano, took singing lessons and idolised Delta Goodrem but the song writing of Dolly Parton and Brandy Clark soon became her driving influences. 


Cass wrote Typical Bride for all the girls "who, like me, don’t fit the traditional bride mould” with her partner, Blake Dantier, after proposing to him and having a less than satisfying conversation about her wedding with her parents. 


Cass’s debut album, produced by Matt Fell, will be released in 2021.
