The Voice Season 3 winner Cassadee Pope sang the National Anthem today at the IMF Brickyard 400 NASCAR race today. This marks the second time Pope has performed the National Anthem at an event: in 2012, she performed at a Dodgers baseball game. After finishing her stint as the opening act on tour for Rascal Flatts, today's performance was a stop on a second radio promo tour to promote her new single "Wasting All These Tears" and upcoming solo album set to be released this fall.
Keep trying to get them country fans by now proclaiming your love for NASCAR. Even with all this promo and her music video, her single is still nonexistent on the charts (while season 4 winner Danielle's new song is actually doing pretty well). Bland and screechy National Anthem rendition, bland and screechy Opry performance surprises no one.
Also, her twitter got hacked today with spam ads for a weight loss pill/supplement thing. I'd provide pictures but by the time I made this post, she'd deleted all the tweets. It was still hilarious because it went on for long enough in between her actual tweets that I thought she was actually shilling this crap herself. LBR, she should be shilling Hot Topic extensions instead. At least she's got a new career path set when her country career dies.
