Bradbery says hello to summer
Sunday, September 24, 2017
– Danielle Bradbery released the song "Hello Summer" along with a music video off her upcoming soph release, "I Don't Believe We've Met Yet."
"'Hello Summer' actually came to me from Thomas Rhett who had co-written the song while writing for his own album with his dad Rhett Akins, Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three and his producer Julian Bunetta," Bradbery said. "He felt like the song could be re-written with a female perspective and so I sat down with his dad, Rhett, and he re-wrote some of the lyrics to fit my voice. Julian agreed to produce it, and I'm so proud of how it turned out. It's one of the few I didn't co-write myself but I feel it really speaks to the same emotional theme of the record and pushes the boundaries sonically into new territory for me."
Following the release of her lead single "Sway" now at radio, Bradbery also has unveiled "Human Diary."
Bradbery released her self-titled debut in 2013. She wrote 7 of the 10 songs on the new disc.

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: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
