Up-and-coming country pop artist Kassandra Clack recently released her fun new single “Airplane Champagne” on June 10th via all streaming platforms. The new release coincided with her Canadian Music Week showcase at Wheatsheaf Tavern on June 8th for the Jim Beam Talent showcase.
Produced by Dan Swinimer (Madeline Merlo, JoJo Mason), “Airplane Champagne” is a playful love song that perfectly reflects Kassandra’s bubbly, fun-loving personality. The single is off her upcoming debut album, set to release in Fall 2022.
Based out of Maple Ridge, BC, Kassandra Clack is a tenacious country artist who is no stranger to radio buzz in both major and satellite radio markets. With her most recent involvement as a finalist in Canadian Music Week’s Jim Beam 2021 Talent Search, Kassandra has enhanced her industry presence while telling stories from the heart.
Determined to further herself as a nationally syndicated country artist, her releases “Buy My Own Beer”, “Stolen” and “Are You with Me” were all added to SiriusXM’s country rotation. In 2021, “Buy My Own Beer” made its way to Yangaroo/DMDS’ “Top 5 Country Downloaded” and “Most Active Indie” charts. Kassandra has been featured coast to coast on CBC Country Radio, JFRM and Country 93.3 FM.
I had the opportunity to chat with Kassandra about her new single, songwriting and what’s next.
Kat: Can you talk about the inspiration behind your latest single “Airplane Champagne”? How did the song come about?
Kassandra: This all season-getaway anthem was written by incredible Sony Writers Karen Kosowski, Emma-Lee and Femke Weidema. This song’s influence is a pop groove with southern instrumentation that will facilitate the vibrant feeling of being on vacation harnessing a loving escape any day of the week.
Kat: What do you hope fans connect with from the song?
Kassandra: Post-pandemic we are all craving that getaway and very few of us can afford it. However, this song brings vibrancy, joy and uplifting energy to make you feel light as a feather anywhere you are with your significant other. The person who makes you feel as high as ‘Airplane Champagne’. It can be streamed in all digital stores today!
Kat: Congrats on your showcase this year at Canadian Music Week! What can audiences expect from one of your live performances?
Kassandra: It’s a surprise. You’ll have to come to find out! In all seriousness, every show is carefully curated for my friends. We spend time thoughtfully considering what our intention is for every friend/listener and their experience and are so mindful that every live show is precious moments that I get with my friends and strive for that to be portrayed in my shows.

Kat: What has been the biggest career highlight for you so far? What have you learned along the way?
