The Voice Winner Cassadee Pope Just Announced a Huge Career Change
From one genre to another!
The Voice alum Cassadee Pope is shaking things up with her music.
In a recent interview with People discussing her new song “RSVP,” Pope commented on the track's pop sound that has a distinctly different flavor than her original country roots. "I'm moving away from the country space and going more into pop-rock, where I came from initially," she said. "I'm glad that ['RSVP'] kind of straddles those lines. It's a great kind of bridge for me between what I did before and where I'm headed with my next solo project."
Lyrically, "RSVP" centers on the loneliness you feel after a party when the one person you wanted there doesn't show up. "The subject matter is something that gets covered constantly in movies and TV shows, but I've never really heard it in a song like this," she said. "So, I really was proud that we stayed on track and really got that feeling across in the end."
Pope rose to fame after she won the third season of The Voice in 2012 under Blake Shelton’s team. Her Blind Audition got her a Four-Chair Turn, and she was the first female winner of the show. Before her time on The Voice, she was the lead vocalist of the pop punk band Hey Monday. Since 2012, she's gone on to receive a Grammy Award nomination and has toured with Tim McGraw. Her debut album Frame by Frame was released in 2013.
