Cassadee Pope tells Rolling Stone that Blake Shelton did not make her sing country songs on The Voice. “He didn’t make me [sing country music]. People misconstrue that. He never pushed me to do anything, and that’s what I loved about him. Blake picks really unique artists who already have a vision for themselves. He just wants to be the platform that helps them get to where they need to be. Right after I won, I remember texting Blake, saying, ‘Do you think this will work? Do you think people will accept me?’ He told me they already have. So that was a big encouragement for me to come down to Nashville and dive in head first.”
