Did you know that no — and I repeat, NO — solo female country music artist has achieved a Platinum-certified debut single since 2006 when Taylor Swift bombarded our radio stations with “Tim McGraw“? That has been true until now. It only took 8 years, but Cassadee Pope has ended that streak with her debut single “Wasting All These Tears” selling more than one million copies and reaching Platinum status by The Recording Industry Association of America.

Rocking Country Music Singer Cassadee Pope, from Blake Shelton’s #TeamBlake who won Season 3 of The Voice, has her follow up single “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart” already released to country radio. She will be touring with Tim McGraw on his Sundown Heaven 2014 Tour this summer.

Congratulations, Cassadee!  Hit us up when you’re ready for a Country Music Chat Twitterview !

More about Cassadee Pope

At just 23, Cassadee Pope’s unique vocals and powerful performances stole the national spotlight during Season 3 of “The Voice.” The reigning star of the NBC hit primetime show wowed from the start with offers from all four judges during the blind auditions before accepting with Team Blake (Shelton). Excelling throughout the competition, Pope displayed diverse musical tastes and talents, covering such songs as “Stupid Boy” (Keith Urban) and “Cry” (Faith Hill). Her version of the Country hit “Over You” (Miranda Lambert) was one of her three Voice performances that catapulted to the #1 spot on the iTunes All-Genre Chart, further proving Pope’s wide consumer appeal and vocal prowess.

Less than a week after her victory on the show, THE VOICE: THE COMPLETE SEASON 3 COLLECTION owned the #1 spot on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart. The talented singer/songwriter has already appeared on TODAY, Live! with Kelly & Michael, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and performed with Train on NEW YEAR’S EVE WITH CARSON DALY

Pope will release her first Country album later this year.
