Our resident vocal superhero Cassadee Pope earned the right to be called The Voice of America after taking home the gold in season three of the mega-hit reality show. She last came back to her hometown when still in the top three -- not quite yet a winner -- to show West Palm Beach some love and get us some airtime. She's returning again to play for even more fans after her big, televised break-though. And now that she's a rising country star, maybe belt out a few twangy numbers.

Cassadee will play for free Friday, August 30, at the CityPlace Summer Country Music Concert Series. These shows always have crowds so huge, you'd think someone was payin' them to be there. Nope, it's just the music, which is almost as good. Reformed rocker, Pope used to front pop-punk band Hey Monday but in her new role, she's the perfect headliner for this series.
If you've been looking for a chance to introduce your youngsters, or yourself, to this wholesome role model, Pope will make a post-show appearance at CityPlace's brand new Tequila Cowboy Bar & Grill for a public meet-and-greet. With a new album, Frame by Frame, coming out on October 8, now is the time to see this crooner in her natural habitat and at no charge.
Cassadee Pope live at 7:30 p.m., Friday, August 30, at CityPlace, 700 S Rosemary Ave, Downtown West Palm Beach. Admission is free. After the performance, Pope will make an appearance at Tequila Cowboy Bar & Grill for a public meet-and-greet.
