Bradbery has songs covered
Friday, December 21, 2018
– Danielle Bradbery is marking the end of 2018 with series of covers entitled "Yours Truly: 2018." Billboard premiered Bradbery's take of "God Is A Woman"
by Ariana Grande yesterday and announced that her take on "Slow Burn" by Kacey Musgraves and "Psycho" by Post Malone will follow.
"I grew up listening to all kinds of music from country to R&B and hip hop, even Hispanic music with my mom's side of the family, and all of those influences have impacted my own art," Bradbery told Billboard. "Incredible music was released across all genres this year, so I wanted to mark this moment in time with my own versions of some of my favorites. I can't wait for everyone to hear my take on these songs."
"Slow Burn (Yours Truly: 2018)" will be available everywhere next Friday, Dec. 28, with "Psycho (Yours Truly: 2018)" to follow on Friday, Jan. 4.
This project follows Bradbery's recent release of "I Don't Believe We've Met (The Vocals)," featuring the stripped-back vocal tracks of album cuts "Worth It," "Human Diary" and "Potential." She is currently writing for her third album and will hit the road as direct support for select dates on Kane Brown's Live Forever Tour in 2019.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Guthrie brings welcome vibe of sweetness
Before launching into "This Land is Your Land," Arlo Guthrie recalled how his father taught him this song when he was just eight or nine.

Then when Arlo's daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie, took the stage midway through the first half of the... »»»
