‘Voice’ Winner Cassadee Pope Filming Reality Show About Budding Country Career


After winning the third season of The Voice, life has been a whirlwind for Cassadee Pope. She signed a record deal immediately with Republic Nashville, and soon she was writing music and hitting the road to promote new single “Wasting Away These Tears.”

These days, she’s also living life with cameras around her at all times. As she explained to Charlotte station The New 103.7, “I am doing a docu-series. It’s less dramatic than a reality show, and it’s gonna be on CMT around September.”

The show will follow Cassadee on her journey from The Voice through the following months of recording, radio tours, and her debut as opening act on Rascal Flatts‘ upcoming summer tour. “I want to show the fans the nitty gritty of [making music].”

Part of her journey includes another hurdle: Winning over the country world after jumping in from the punk-pop world. She had been a member of the band Hey Monday since 2008, but on The Voice she won over fans and mentor Blake Shelton with a series of country songs, including a cover of Miranda Lambert’s “Over You.”

“People are a little hesitant,” Cassadee says of her transition to country, “but for the most part I think, on the show, I proved to a lot of people that as long as you’re real, you’re genuine and you’re singing songs you connect with, then no matter what genre people will embrace you.”
