Curious about Cassadee Pope? Well, you’re in luck! The Voice winner’s CMT docu-series is premiering tonight (pssst, you can watch the full premiere episode online now) and gives a behind-the-scenes look (our fave!) at Cassadee’s life after The Voice, including touring with Rascal Flatts and recording her debut album, which comes out on October 8th. CMT had a chance to discuss ~looks~ and #FASHUN with the singer, so we figured we’d highlight the best five parts so when you’re watching Frame By Frame tonight (or in 10 minutes), you’ll be well-versed in all things Cassadee.

1.) Her hair was inspired by a fellow reality TV competition winner: “I started streaking my hair when I was about 14 or 15. I loved Kelly Clarkson. She was someone I looked up to, and she had these blond chunks in her brown hair, so I started doing that. And then I switched it and started putting the pieces underneath.”

2.) She has four tattoos, including a smiley face: “There’s one on the back of my arm. It’s a bird singing. Then I have one on the front that says BND which stands for Believers Never Die. Then I have a smiley face on my hand for my great grandfather. We were really close, and he passed away when I was 10. I called him ’Happy,’ so I got a happy face for him. Then I have some clouds and pinks and blues and a vine on my wrist where the birds are perched.”

3.) She’s may get another one, though: “I want to wait until something monumental happens. Hopefully I’ll have a No. 1 single someday, and I’ll be able to do that.”

4.) She’s been keepin’ it #humble and does her own makeup: “I do my own makeup for all the radio visits and Rascal Flatts shows. I’ve always loved smudgy, smoky eyes. I don’t like the way I look in cat eyes, so I tend to do a wide-open doll eye.”

5.) She changes her lip look up on the regular: “And I mostly do a nude lip. But then again, if I have an understated eye then sometimes I’ll do a bright pink lip.”

Cassadee Pope: Frame By Frame airs tonight at 10 PM EST on CMT. We’ll be tuning in for tips on how to do our own eye makeup for a radio promotion and music tour because, hey, we can dream.
