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.

And that means - no surprise whatsoever - that Bradbery opts very decidedly for a pop, highly commercial sheen on her brand of what passes for country these days. Yes, there is an occasional mandolin (at the get go of the lead-off Young in America, and Talk About Love) or similar instrumentation, but the emphasis »»»
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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

Darius Rucker is so darn likeable, he likely gets away with creating subpar music more than most. However, "When Was the Last Time" is a consistently good album, which is as respectable as it is likeable. »»»
