In an interview with Taste of Country Pope talks about her getting fired up for her performances.
I just channel all the obstacles thrown my way, like my parents’ divorce when I was 11. I had to get through that. I felt helpless through that, but I came out the other side learning a lot from it…I grew up singing country and I feel like I’m a good girl, but I’ve got tattoos and I travel and I’m on the road a ton. As a kid I got good grades, but I also had a fake I.D. There’s all these contradictions with myself, and I’m sure a lot of people.
