Cassadee Pope stopped by the old stomping ground, "The Voice" for a performance and to reminice about her days on the show.
Pope performed her new single, "Wasting All These Tears" which also released on iTunes yesterday as well and made it all the way to #1 on iTunes Country charts.
She gave a solid performance of her song, which has great radio potential for her first radio hit with a strong and singable chorus.
Host Carson Daly also asked Pope when her new album would be releasing and she informed the world last night that it would be out in October. No official date set publicly yet.
Pope will kick off her first major tour as a solo artist tomorrow opening up for Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry. This exposure will really help gain a wider fanbase and open herself up to the country market at a critical time in her career when she wants to get off to a fast start.
While speaking with Carson Daly after her performance on "The Voice" last night, she gave the show a lot of credit for giving her the platform she had been seeking to launch herself as a solo artist.
Since Pope was in a fairly successful pop/rock band called, Hey Monday, which did some big tours themselves opening for the likes of Fall Out Boy, some fans of her older music are still coping with the adjustment in her sound.
A few years ago, no one would expect her to be releasing songs in a country category. Even though her sound is still very pop, she is technically tagging herself as pop/country now and on the charts as well.
Pope chose to work with Team Blake (Blake Shelton) last year on "The Voice" and many think that his influence had a lot to do with her new sound, which makes sense since he is opening most of the new doors for her.
What do you think of her new single and sound with "Wasting All These Tears"?
