‘Catch of the Day’ – Danielle Bradbery – “Sway” [AUDIO]
Today we feature an artist born and raised in Texas, who came to notoriety during season four of The Voice. At that time she became the showcases youngest winner, after being guided by the mentoring of Blake Shelton.
Danielle Bradbery was just 16 when she auditioned for season for of the NBC reality contest show, The Voice. She auditioned with Taylor Swift's "Mean" and turned 3 chairs" Adam Levine, Usher and Blake Shelton; she chose Shelton to be her coach. Throughout season 4, Bradbury was consistently topping the iTunes charts and would finish the competition with the most iTunes appearances of any of that season's competitors. She had more downloads during that season than any Voice competitor either before her or after; her numbers still top the shows list to this day. She would be named the season winner, and at age 17 she was the show's youngest winner to date, and would remains so for four seasons.
Born in Houston, TX and raised in Cypress, Bradbery's ticket to stardom had been punched. Soon after her win, she signed with Big Machine Records, releasing her debut single "The Heart of Dixie" in July of 2013, just weeks after her big win. It would be followed by her self-titled debut album in
November. She toured with Hunter Hayes and Brad Paisley in 2013 and 2014, making her Grand Ole Opry debut on November 12 of 2013 just two weeks before the release of her first album.
"Heart of Dixie" would peak at #12 on the Billboard Country Singles chart, and the album sold more than 100,000 copies, but the popularity created by Bradbery's victory faded, with the follow-up single from the album, "Young In America" stalling, peaking at #49 on the charts.
In 2015, Bradbery released her third single, "Friend Zone". During interviews promoting the single, she reported she was busy writing songs for her second album. But the single never was officially released, though it chart peaking at #41. The album failed to materialize, leaving Bradbury's fans wondering what was going on with the young singer.
