Country singer and Season 3 Voice winner Cassadee Pope and her fiance of four months, drummer Rian Dawson, have reportedly called off their engagement.
Nashville Gab first broke the news early Sunday (July 9). A representative for the couple confirmed the news saying that the two “have amicably ended their relationship, but remain friends, supportive of each others’ careers and maintain the utmost respect for one another.”
The couple began dating in 2009, 3 years before Pope appeared on, and ultimately won, The Voice‘s third season as a member of Team Blake. Pope was the first ever female winner of the reality singing competition.
Dawson proposed to Pope in February and the couple shared the news of their engagement just days before Pope attended the Grammy Awards where she was nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance along with Chris Young.
“I had no idea. It was such a surprise! It was a Tuesday morning and I was still in my pj’s, so it was not expected, clearly. This is such a stupid story, but he was sweeping in the living room and our puppy, a little French bulldog, the love of our lives, was biting the broom,” Pope told Sounds Like Nashville at the time. “So I took Cuppy, which is his name, and took him in the bedroom and just kept him in there for a few minutes and Rian was like, ‘Ok, you can let him out!’ Then, I opened the door and he was on one knee.”
While neither party has publicly commented on the split, Pope hinted that big changed were happening in her life when she revealed that she had bought a house in late June.
We wish Cassadee Pope and Rian Dawson the very best.
