Once Team Blake, always Team Blake. Blake Shelton surprised an audience in Indianapolis last weekend when he brought out a surprise guest: Cassadee Pope, the Season 3 winner of The Voice. Cassadee was in the area for the NASCAR Brickyard 400 race with her fellow Big Machine Label Group artists when she got the call to join her old coach onstage.
“I drove about an hour on Saturday night to his show to play in front of 25,000 people. It was nuts,” says Cassadee, who performed her current single, “Wasting All These Tears,” after Blake teased the crowd with a few lines from the song.
“It was so funny the way he introduced me. He was talking about me and the single and the band started playing the song and he started singing it,” she says. “He stopped himself and said, ‘You know what, I think it would be cooler if Cassadee sang this herself.’ And then they had me walk onstage and down the stairs.”
Naturally, the fans went wild, much to Cassadee’s surprise.
“I didn’t expect the crowd reaction!” she admits with a laugh. “I felt kind of cool.”
