Exactly eight months ago today, a sweet, Texas-born and raised sixteen-year-old named Danielle Bradbery performed Taylor Swift‘s “Mean” on NBC’s The Voice. Fast forward three months and Danielle Bradbery was a household name as Season Four’s champion from Team Blake, coached by country megastar, Blake Shelton. Danielle’s self-titled debut album with record label Big Machine Records hit stores and iTunes today, and fans will not be disappointed in the project they have been anticipating since Danielle was declared “The Voice.”
Danielle’s album — a fifteen-track disc with four popular covers, two previously recorded songs, and nine originals — offers fans a little bit of everything from the youngest winner of The Voice and Team Blake protege. Fans are already familiar with tracks 12-15, all songs performed by Danielle on live television during the competition. “Jesus Take the Wheel,” “Born To Fly,” “Maybe It Was Memphis,” and “Who I Am” are some of Danielle’s fans’ favorite covers from The Voice, and are a throwback to Danielle’s music industry roots and a way to pay homage to where she came from.
Season Four The Voice champion, Danielle Bradbery of Team Blake, will be releasing her debut album, Danielle Bradbery, this Monday, November 25, 2013, just in time for the holidays. The album features Danielle’s debut single, which is climbing up the charts, Heart of Dixie.
The album includes several covers which Danielle performed on her season of The Voice, as well as many originals. Get ready to pick up your copy of Danielle Bradbery on Monday. It is a perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite country music fan!

Sara Kauss of Parasol Production (@_Parasol_), the Producer of the Dance Hall music video, met Emily at a concert event at Sara and Zak Kauss’s ranch in Florida, where Emily performed on the Fourth of July. Immediately, Sara recognized something extremely special in the young artist and, without hesitation, determined Emily’s was a career in which she truly believed and of which she offered her support. The Dance Hall music video is Parasol Production‘s first major project, and a flawless one, indeed.
After polling Emily’s fan base, Dance Hall (which later became a track on Danielle Bradbery‘s debut album) was selected as the first music video off of Here Right Now. Dance Hall, which was written by April Geesbreght, Molly Reed, and Nicole Gaylon, was a song that Emily knew she wanted to record upon first listen. “I instantly fell in love with the song after hearing it!” Emily explained in her speech at her music video premiere party.
Without further ado, we present to you Emily’s first, and certainly not last, music video — Dance Hall!
Season Four The Voice champion, Danielle Bradbery, has completed her self-titled debut album, and Danielle Bradbery is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Danielle’s fifteen track debut project will be released on November 25, 2013, just in time for the holidays. The following is the track list for the album:
The Voice Season 4 champion and Big Machine recording artist, Danielle Bradbery, has released her first music video for her debut single, “The Heart of Dixie!”
The video was directed by Shane Drake and shot at Butterfly Hollow outside of Nashville. Bradbery’s best friends were on sight to co-star in her debut.
Danielle shared: “Shooting my first music video was an incredible experience. It matches perfectly the storytelling in the song. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
The rising star’s first studio album is due out in November.
Bradbery stole the hearts of America last spring as part of Team Blake on The Voice. Not only did Bradbery take home the title, she also sold the most iTunes downloads in the show’s history and was the youngest contestant ever to win.
We expect to see continued success from the seventeen-year-old country powerhouse!
Congratulations to The Voice’s latest winner Danielle Bradbery! The Team Blake Shelton contestant has signed a recording contract with Big Machine Label Group as part of her winnings. She’ll be working on her debut country album shortly, with an expected release date next year in 2014.
Danielle won the fourth season of NBC’s hit reality television show, giving coach Blake Shelton a three-peat championship. He has won the show the last three seasons – and had the second-place runner up Dia Frampton in the first season. The new season of The Voice will return this Fall.
Are you excited to hear music from Danielle? Did you vote for her?
The Voice finale for season 4 aired last night, and it’s a three-peat for Blake Shelton. The new Voice title went to Team Blake’s 16-year-old country singer, Danielle Bradbery.
Danielle was a favorite from early on in the competition. She consistently wowed the coaches and audience every week. The Voice was the first audition she ever had, but you would never know that watching her perform. She looked like a seasoned professional on the stage, and her top-notch vocals seemed effortless. Danielle has “it”… we are going to see a lot of her in country music!
Coach Blake has won the last three seasons of The Voice. We love getting to see Shelton mentor the contestants and help navigate their careers. He really is so wonderful with his team, and he truly sticks with them once the show is over.
It also happened to be Shelton’s birthday yesterday and I think the win was a pretty awesome present!
Fellow Team Blake members, The Swon Brothers, came in third place. Zach and Colton are on great duo and I think they are going to be very successful as well. I am still blown away by their version of “Danny’s Song.” It’s a must download from iTunes if you have not grabbed it yet.
I also want to recognize Team Usher member, Michelle Chamuel, who finished as the runner-up. She was so great this season as well and what a humble and gracious personality.
I truly think this was the best season of The Voice thus far. The talent was excellent, and Usher and Shakira were perfect additions for our two favorite guys, Blake and Adam.
Congratulations to Danielle and Blake, as well as The Swon Brothers & Michelle! We wish you all continued success with your music careers!
Until Season 5, Voice fans…
Check out Danielle performing “Maybe It Was Memphis” from earlier this season:
Danielle Bradbery, Holly Tucker, and The Swon Brothers all advance to next week’s Top 8. Team Adam also returns all three remaining members, while Usher and Shakira each had to say good-bye to another teammate last night.
Blake definitely put together a strong team, and all three should do well with a career in country music in the future.
First, Danielle is a star! She has powerful vocals that are always spot on. The voice mixed in with her amazing stage presence and personality makes her a definite front-runner in the competition. She seems like a seasoned performer, yet she is the youngest contestant and the show was her first audition.
Next, we have Holly Tucker. She’s another fantastic vocalist, who I think just had her best performance this week. All I could say after watching her version of “How Great Art Thou” was ‘DANG! That was awesome!’ And I’m not southern… Blake is rubbing off on me.
Finally, the Swon Brothers. They are so unique and are as country as you can get. Whether they are rockin’ out or slowing things down, the brothers truly shine together.
Blake may just have another win on his hands. Could it be a three-peat for Team Blake? I think Adam is his biggest competition right now, and it will probably come down to a Team Blake vs. Team Adam showdown.
