Danielle Bradbery is the eponymous debut studio album of country singer and The Voice season 4-winner Danielle Bradbery, released on November 25, 2013.[1]

Background and recording[edit]

In March 2013, sixteen-year-old Danielle Bradbery auditioned for season four of the American singing competition The Voice, performing Taylor Swift's "Mean". Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Usher all turned around, and Bradbery opted to join 'Team Blake'.[2] Throughout the competition, Bradbery was the first to send a single to the top 10 on iTunes, had the most singles (five) reach that peak, and had the most iTunes downloads of any contestant in the history of the competition. On June 18, 2013, Bradbery was crowned the winner of The Voice, and the next day signed to Big Machine Records.[3]

Promotion[edit]

On September 14, 2013, Bradbery performed on the WGTY Great Country Radio stage at the York Fair, where she sang her first single "The Heart of Dixie" as well as four other new songs from the album.[4]

The first single from the album, "The Heart of Dixie", was sent to country radio on July 8, 2013 and was released to digital retailers (via Universal Republic Nashville) July 16, 2013.[5] It was officially solicited to radio on July 22.[6] So far, the song has peaked within the top 20 on the Hot Country chart and the top 30[7] on the Country Airplay chart. "I Will Never Forget You" was also released as a digital download prior to the album's release. It has charted at number 49 on the Country Digital Songs chart.[8]

The second official single released to radio is "Young in America". Bradbery announced this through her Facebook page on March 28, 2014.

Bradbery revealed details about her upcoming album on October 1 through a live Facebook chat, including the album's title, cover image, and release date.[1] On October 22, Bradbery released the official tracklist hour by hour via Twitter.
