Cassadee Pope Preps Return to ‘The Voice’
Season 3 winner of 'The Voice' Cassadee Pope is looking forward to returning to the show next week. The 23-year-old will premiere her new single 'Wasting All These Tears,' but she's more excited to hang with the cast and crew of the show that made her famous.
"It was the people behind the scenes that I loved, like the producers, the PAs, hair and makeup, wardrobe, camera crew ..." Pope told Country Weekly. "They made it even more fun than it was already. I'm excited to go back and see everybody and just catch up because they jumped right into the next season so I haven't been able to hang out with them or see them very much."
Pope says she isn't nervous about performing the single on the June 4 live episode of the NBC reality show, but she knows it's a big stage for an important song. This time, it's not a competition. She can't be sent home if she does a bad job.
"I'm just going and showing people what I've been up to the past few months, whereas before if I messed up, I could go home," she says. "But it's going to be scary. I definitely have to do the best I can. It's live television and you can't fix that."
'Wasting All These Tears' will be available on iTunes on Tuesday as well. It's the first single from her first post 'The Voice' project. She signed with Republic Nashville Records (home to the Band Perry, Florida Georgia Line and Eli Young Band) in January.
