Two of our favorite things in the world, Cassadee Pope and adorable puppies, recently came together for the first-ever Country Now Pupdate.

Pope played with pups from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, a local nonprofit foster home based rescue, while answering questions about her music and revealing fun facts about herself, including which items she must always have stocked on the bus, her first celebrity crush and more.

The singer/songwriter, who happens to be a dog lover herself, was overwhelmed by the cuteness of the puppies. Though she got a bit distracted by her new four-legged friends, she managed to answer all the questions with ease.

Pope also dished on her most embarrassing celebrity run-in, which happened to be with the one and only Lady Gaga.

Watch the clip above to catch Pope on the Country Now Pupdate.

2019 has been quite the year for the songstress. On top of releasing her new album, Stages, Pope also toured with Maren Morris on the Girl: The World Tour and headlined the global 2019 CMT Next Women of Country Tour. Fans can catch the Florida native playing fairs and festivals across the country throughout the summer.
