NYCS 2018 Artist to Watch Where Are They Now: Danielle Bradbery

Danielle Bradbery

Here at New York Country Swag, we pride ourselves on being tastemakers, finding and championing new and up-and-coming artists and introducing our followers to the best of the best of the rising acts. Back in January of this year we named the 10 artists below in our “Artists to Watch in 2018” and we are proud to say, we know rising talent before they make it big. Someone to add to your watchlist is Danielle Bradbery.

Danielle Bradbery is Big Machine Recording’s newest upcoming artist who is making quite the name for herself. Throughout this past year, she has been making huge strides in the music business. Bradbery’s newest album I Don’t Believe We’ve Met was one of our favorites released last year. The 10-track album shows the singer as someone who puts meaningful thoughts into her powerful lyrics. From first listen, Bradbery’s latest album is a remarkable testament to the artist who is finally choosing her own path. As a 16-year-old, Bradbery took the reality competition, The Voice, by storm with her strong vocal ability and sweet nature. Now, 21, she understands the importance of being honest with yourself and making the music that you feel best represents you.

Released this past summer, “Goodbye Summer” was Bradbery’s newest single. Racking up streams and airtime around the country, the song has become a summer anthem. The reimagined track also features country superstar Thomas Rhett which just adds an unquestionable strength as a duet. What fans may not know is the song was actually written by Rhett. The two have become quite good friends since Bradbery moved to town and he has helped her get a good jump into the industry.  Singing their hearts out on the sandy beaches of Florida, the video was released and has gathered over 600,000 views. Just like the song, the video also unfolds a summer romance story between a girl and boy, falling in love and spending the whole summer together, until September rolls around and they part ways.

Bradberry also took a selfless approach to the area she filmed the video in. Shot on the beaches where Hurricane Michael hit, she saw how the town was affected. She teamed up with the Rosemary Beach Foundation to help raise funds for the rebuilding and aiding of the surrounding areas. If that was not enough to make you fall in love with her, she has also connected with ABLE, a Nashville-based lifestyle brand. Bradbery and ABLE created a line of jewelry that incorporates her single, “Worth It.” The singer-songwriter designed a number of accessories within the collection, including a ring, necklace, bracelet and more, all of which have the words “Worth It” engraved on each piece of jewelry. The proceeds from these sales go to help people in need in Nashville and beyond.

Bradbery has quite the new year planned as she will head out on the road with Kane Brown as a supporting act for his ‘Live Forever Tour’ this winter. She also has teased that a third album is in the works and says that she is writing every single song on the album, so if this last one is any indication for the next, it will be nothing short of remarkable and inspirational.
