“I am so honored by this morning’s news,” Young says. “Cassadee and I have had such a great time together with this song at radio and on tour. Having it not only go No. 1 but also be nominated for a Grammy is really incredible!”
Pope echoed his humble thoughts.
“This moment is beyond any I could have ever imagined,” she adds in a press release. “'Think of You' continues to change my life in amazing ways, and I am grateful for everyone who has believed in Chris and me. Thank you to the Recording Academy for this generous nomination!”
