NBC’s ‘The Voice’: Reigning champ Cassadee Pope to be featured on CMT pilot

Cassadee PopeDid you enjoy seeing Cassadee Pope on “The Voice” this past season? If so, you are probably going to be rather pleased with the news that we have to share now.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, country music network CMT has announced that they have picked up a pilot for what is tentatively entitled “The Cassadee Pope Project,” and is going to document the singer’s journey from being on the NBC singing competition (which she won as a member of Blake Shelton’s team) to trying to get an album in stores, promoting it, and making some of her songs into hits in one of the most competitive genres in the entire music industry.

In a statement confirming the news about this pilot, here is what the network’s executive vice-president of programming and development Jayson Dinsmore had to say about welcoming Cassadee into the fold:

“We think there’s something really valuable about a first-person account of the process of becoming a country star.”

Cassadee has been hard at work at launching this album ever since early this year, and while “making of” shows do not always directly lead to an artist being successful, this surely will not hurt Pop considering the fact that “The Voice” has not exactly found much success with its first two winners in Javier Colon and Jermaine Paul. With Blake’s help and this show behind her, Cassadee (who figured out that she had an interest in country while working with the “God Gave Me You” singer) could have every tool that she needs to be a star.

What do you think about the idea behind this show, and are you excited to watch it? Be sure to share some more of your thoughts below, and you can read some early scoop on “The Voice” season 4 (and Shakira) over at the link here.
