It’s been over half a decade since the Team Blake member stole the show and took home top honors during the 2012 season of The Voice – but she’s still known as one of its biggest successes.

Beyond her success after departing from The Voice, Cassadee Pope has also chartered her own career in country music, releasing a full album and two EPs worth of songs. She also earned a number one hit with her “Think of You” duet alongside Chris Young.


In 2017, she not only split from her longtime record label, Big Machine Records, but she and her partner of ten years called off their engagement. On top of that, she also began working on brand new music as a way to help work through some of the trials of life.

She’s been taking new risks…and loving the results. Apparently, this includes her love life as well!

While on a stroll with her pup in December, Pope said that a chance encounter had led to something very special, adding that she and her new man have really “hit it off.”

Pope has confirmed that she and star of television’s Nashville, Sam Palladio, did meet in a Nashville dog park while they were getting their fur children out for some fresh air.

The pair went official via Instagram in a post celebrating fellow country singer, Maren Morris’, wedding day and Pope poked fun with a sassy caption.

“Watch my two buds get married yesterday,” she wrote. “My heart is so full for you [Maren Morris] & [Ryan Hurd]! Also, I’ll pay you later for being my date, [Sam Palladio].”

Palladio plays the role of Gunnar Scott on CMT’s hit drama and previously was romantically connected to fellow co-star, Chaley Rose.
