How Blake Shelton Continues to Support Cassadee Pope Nearly 10 Years After Her ‘Voice’ Win

The Florida native, 32, keeps in touch with her former coach, 45, “a little bit here and there,” she told Us Weekly exclusively on the red carpet of the 2021 CMT Artists of the Year celebration in Nashville on Wednesday, October 13.

“He’s a busy guy,” the “Wasting All These Tears” singer teased. “But  you know, he’s been super supportive, he had me premiere my album Stages at an album release party a couple years ago at Ole Red downtown and he let me use his venue for that.”

Pope became the first female winner of The Voice when she was crowned the season 3 champ in December 2012. Almost a decade later, she cheered on the “God’s Country” crooner as he marked his 20th season of the NBC singing competition in March. “Me and a bunch of Voice alums from the Blake team made him a video,” she recalled of the big milestone.

While she’s still on friendly terms with the Oklahoma-born artist, the ACM nominee hasn’t “heard the details” about his summer wedding to Gwen Stefani. The couple tied the knot in July after meeting on the set of The Voice six years prior.

Since her time on the reality TV series, Pope has released three records:Frame by Frame in 2013, Stages in 2019 and Rise and Shine in 2020. Her fourth album, Thrive, drops on Friday, October 15, but getting creative after The Voice wasn’t always a breeze.
