Congratulations are in order for Cassadee Pope: The singer is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Rian Dawson!
Pope and Dawson, who is the drummer in the rock band All Time Low, have been dating for seven years, People reports. On Friday night (Feb. 10), both artists shared a photo of themselves kissing on Instagram, engagement ring on Pope’s hand.
“The love of my life is now OFFICIALLY the love of my life,” Dawson writes. “Never been happier.”
Country music fans may recognize Dawson from Pope’s “Summer” music video; he stars opposite her, as Pope’s love interest in the clip.
“I actually begged him to be in the video,” Pope tells Taste of Country. “But he’s, first of all, is an amazing, amazing supporter of mine, and he has been since the beginning, since six-and-a-half years ago, before The Voice, before everything. And he was just like, ‘I’m not an actor. I want you to get the best of the best for this video. I want it to be amazing, and I don’t think I will be able to deliver that because I’m not an actor — I’m a drummer in All Time Low, that’s what I do.’”
Pope is currently working on a new album, but she recently hinted to The Boot that there may be some changes ahead in her professional life.
“I’m just hoping to release something. I’ve been writing a ton,” the artist shares. “Getting the whole team behind me and to agree on songs, it’s a lot. I’m taking this year as a little bit of a transitional year, and figuring things out and doing what I want to do creatively, and not answering to anybody. It’s very validating. And scary. And risky. But I don’t care. I’m doing me.”
