Willie and Jase Roberston of the Cast Duck Dynasty
Since the Duck Dynasty's premiere, the Robertsons have been busy being America's favorite big, bearded, camo-clad family. Despite their modest lifestyle and homes in the backwoods, this close-knit family has made a fortune on duck calls by turning a backyard business into a multi-million dollar sporting empire. Willie is the CEO and resident prankster of Duck Commander. As the only one with the business degree, he took the company from a living room operation down by the river to a premiere destination for all things outdoors. Jase is Willie's brother and his polar opposite. While Willie enjoys making deals behind the desk, Jase would much rather call the swamp his office. But he knows he's gotta earn his keep, so Jase's job within the company is to fabricate the duck calls that have made Duck Commander famous. They may be living the rags-to-riches American dream, but they're just as busy staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and southern roots.
Cassadee Pope's unique vocals and powerful performances stole the national spotlight during Season 3 of The Voice. The reigning star of the NBC hit primetime show wowed from the start with offers from all four judges during the blind auditions before accepting with Team Blake (Shelton). Excelling throughout the competition, Pope displayed diverse musical tastes and talents, covering such songs as "Stupid Boy" (Keith Urban) and "Cry" (Faith Hill), while Cassadee's version of "Over You" (Miranda Lambert) marked one of three Voice performances catapulting to the #1 spot on the iTunes All-Genre Chart. Less than a week after her victory on the show, THE VOICE: THE COMPLETE SEASON 3 COLLECTION owned the #1 spot on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart. She will return to the show tonight (6/4), debuting "Wasting All These Tears," the first single from her forthcoming album, slated for later this year on Republic Nashville. The Florida native is currently working with CMT on a DOCU SERIES, which will debut in the fall and give an inside look at the making of her album. This summer the talented singer/songwriter is hitting the road with Rascal Flatts on the LIVE & LOUD Tour. She has already appeared on TODAY, Live With Kelly & Michael, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and performed with Train on NEW YEAR'S EVE WITH CARSON DALY.
