One of the weird things, at least to me, to happen over the last few years in country music was Danielle Bradbery’s first record.
She came off The Voice as probably the best performer on the show. She signed with Big Machine and gathered songs from some of Nashville’s best songwriters and put out a great record.
The first single, The Heart Of Dixie, climbed into the top 15 and was a good debut. Then the second single, Young In America, came and went pretty fast. It almost seemed like it was given up on.
And we haven’t heard much for at least a year and probably more.
But Danielle has been busy on a second record and that’s great news. We’ll have her new singles here on the blog later this week, but before that I want to look back on one of the many great tracks from her first record that didn’t make it as a single.
Endless Summer – Danielle Bradbery
That song just seems to be made for country radio. One of the co-writers is Sarah Buxton and she’s had hits for a few other artists including Keith Urban over the years. She has a fun style and it worked really well with Danielle on that track.
It was weird that Danielle only had two singles from that first record. She did great on the vocals, but maybe the album was rushed to complete and rushed to end.
I don’t know. It was weird, but I’m glad she’s getting a second album and the first single sounds great.
And the good news is we can enjoy her first album and all its great album tracks.
