One of the biggest stars to ever get their start on “The Voice” is headed back home Tuesday night.
Cassadee Pope won the show’s third season and has gone on to score a platinum single for her country hit, “Wasting All These Tears.” Now that she’s going back to “The Voice” to perform her new single, “I Am Invincible,” this week, Pope tells Rare Country she can’t wait to give this season’s contestants some real-world advice.
Says Pope, “I love going back to ‘The Voice’ because I get to interact with the artists and just kind of let them know, ‘Listen, just get ready, ’cause this is nothing compared to the roller coaster ride that is actually being in the music industry out there in the real world.'”
She adds, “I love to get them excited for that ’cause a lot of people think that you do ‘The Voice’ and you’re done and you go out and you make it, but the real work comes afterwards.”
In addition to singing her brand-new single, Pope is also freaking out to meet one of her all-time heroes, Dolly Parton, who will also appear on “The Voice” Tuesday night.
“I don’t know how I’m going to keep my composure,” Pope says of her upcoming first meeting with Parton. “I’m just so excited. It’s unbelievable. I mean, if there’s anybody you want to model your career after, it’s her.”
