Republic Nashville proudly announces today the addition of Cassadee Pope to its roster. The Young singer-songwriter emerged while competing on NBC's "The Voice" and winning the Season 3 title last December.

Chosen for Team Blake (Shelton), Pope excelled throughout the competition, displaying diverse musical tastes and talents, covering songs like Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy," Kelly Clarkson's "Behind These Hazel Eyes" and Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn." After a performance of "Over You" - honoring her mentor and his wife, Miranda Lambert - the tune catapulted to the #1 spot on the iTunes All Genre Chart.

"I am so excited to be joining the very talented Republic Nashville family. I am so passionate about my music and I couldn't be more excited to have this amazing team to back me as I embark on this next chapter in my career," said Pope. "Cassadee was a standout from day one and once she delivered her incredible version of Miranda Lambert's "Over You," I started working over my NY label partner Monte Lipman (CEO of Republic Records) to try to convince him that Cassadee belonged in Nashville," said Big Machine Label Group President Scott Borchetta. "Each week Cassadee continued to knock down big Country songs by Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Faith Hill, 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. The BMLG Team is over the top excited about Cassadee Pope!"

Republic Nashville President/BMLG EVP Jimmy Harnen added, "Cassadee simply has it all! Phenomenal singer, incredible stage presence, an endearing and charming personality...she's a star! Everyone at Republic Nashville and the Big Machine Label Group is simply over the top about welcoming her to the family!"

Pope's best-of album, THE VOICE: THE COMPLETE SEASON 3 COLLECTION, catapulted into the #1 spot on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart less than a week after her victory. She has also made national television appearances on TODAY, Live! With Kelly & Michael and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, among others.

Additional updates will follow in the coming weeks. You can learn more via twitter.com/CassadeePope. Watch her Journey on "The Voice," Season 3 here.
