Cassadee Pope was the winner of the third season of the reality singing competition, "The Voice." She was mentored by Blake Shelton, as part of "Team Blake."
On October 8, the songstress released her debut studio country album Frame By Frame via her record label, Republic Nashville. She co-wrote five out of the 11 songs on the record.
It opens with the upbeat "Good Times," which was co-penned by country songstress Sarah Buxton. It is followed by "Champagne," which is pure ear candy.
"Wasting All These Tears" is the album's lead-off single and it is rightfully escalating its way up the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts.
"I Wish I Could Break Your Heart" is a noteworthy vocal that showcases her vulnerability. "Everybody Sings" is catchy as well.
"You Hear a Song" is an exquisite ballad, and she changes the pace of the record with the mid-tempo and infectious tune "This Car." Equally gorgeous is the poignant ballad "One Song Away," where she yet again showcases her vulnerability. Either of these three songs would make great choices as future radio single.
"11" is a song that hits home for Cassadee and it closes with "Proved You Wrong," where she leaves her listeners thirsty for more of her music.
In summation, Cassadee Pope does a beautiful job on her debut country project. Every song on here has its own identity. She showcases her powerful vocals and her superb storytelling ability. She emerges as the country equivalent to Grammy-nominated songstress Avril Lavigne. It would be a true pity if this talented musician does not receive a nomination next year at the 2014 Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards for "Top New Female Vocalist." Her new CD garners an A rating.
