Who is Sam Palladio dating?

Sam Palladio is dating singer-songwriter Cassadee Pope. In August of 2020, Pope released an acoustic album called Rise and Shine. Pope has spoken publicly about her abandonment issues since she went through her parents’ divorce when she was 11 years old.

Pope went on to explain that Palladio has helped her work through her issues, "I'm very open with my boyfriend about it. He's very supportive and gives me everything I need to feel safe and content. So you also need a partner to kind of help you with it too. I'm very lucky that I have that."  

Pope also had Sam Palladio sing backup vocals on one of her songs, “California Dreaming.”

She said, "I love his voice, and it's really awesome that I get to have the man that's making me happy and who I'm in love with singing on a song about somebody from my past. It feels like this full-circle moment. It was really fun to get in the studio together. We've done stuff at the house and sang together and done virtual shows together, but we've never actually gone in a studio and recorded something officially. So it's exciting, and it's one of my favorite songs." 

Where does Sam Palladio live?

Sam Palladio has a home in Nashville with his girlfriend, Cassadee Pope.

The pair bought their home together in 2019 and that is where they have been quarantining. In fact, Pope says that Palladio has been her “saving grace” throughout quarantine. 

Pope explains her home life with Palladio, "Sam and I, we have this house and we didn't really get into until November, then we were busy, busy, busy. This pandemic hit, so we're finally getting to house stuff. We just finished standing our fence, and we're getting furniture moved around and getting new furniture and painting the walls and all that stuff. So house stuff has been taking up a lot of time..."

"...But we're also doing fun things, like we've gone to the drive-in to see movies and gotten better at cooking. I never thought that would happen, actually not burning things and cooking decent meals. We got kayaks, so we try and get out on the lake to just get outside here and there. It's weird. You wake up in the morning and you're like, 'Okay, I'm going to take on the day.' Then by the time 7 or 8 rolls around, you just wonder where the day even went. So it's not been dragging, thankfully."
