On The Voice, Cassadee Pope was a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll—and a lot of pop music.

Looks like the TV contest winner will be joining her coach, Blake Shelton, in the world of country music. Cassadee and her new label announced Thursday (Jan. 17) that she's joining Republic Nashville, home to acts such as The Band Perry and Florida Georgia Line.

And Cassadee is thrilled.

"Happy to announce I've officially been signed to Universal Republic Nashville!" she posted on Twitter.

It was Cassadee's country performances that convinced label group chief Scott Borchetta that she belonged in Music City.

“Each week Cassadee continued to knock down big country songs by Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Faith Hill," Scott said in a statement, "and after she won we were thrilled to find out that Cassadee was on the same page with us and wanted to come to Nashville."
