When you work on the radio, I don't know if you're supposed to root for this song or that artist to be successful so much as you hope that whatever you're playing appeals to your audience.

Well...tough!

I root. And I always have. And I always hope you guys like what we're playing. And based on the reaction we've gotten so far, Cassadee Pope has people in her corner for her debut single "Wasting All These Tears" which is in the country top 40--a first for a winner on The Voice.

Cassadee was crowned the champ last December and has gone where no previous victor has gone before. And now her stylish and moody new video has arrived.

The song's terrific. The video's solid. And Cassadee Pope is a serious talent.

And, yes, I'm rooting for her.
