Bradbery enters "Friend Zone"

Friday, August 28, 2015 – Danielle Bradbery, season four winner of The Voice, is out with a new song today, "Friend Zone," from her upcoming sophomore disc.

Banjos and marching-band-like drums complement the sports-infused relationship analogies in the tune, penned by Bradbery, Mikal Blue, Johan Lindbrandt and Shari Short.

"I'm so excited to put this song out in the universe after performing it on the down low this summer. In the song, I'm coaching guys how to get out of the dreaded 'friend zone.' The other writers and I put it into sports terms to help the guys understand a little better," the Texan said. "It's a vibe perfect for the start of school and football season. (Producer) Dann Huff was able to bring it to life with the same sass and attitude that we had when writing it."

There was no word on when a new CD would arrive.

Bradbery released her self-titled debut in November 2013. She had a top 20 hit with "The Heart of Dixie," but "Young in America" failed to gain a toehold at country radio.

Previously touring with Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley and Hunter Hayes, Bradbery will join CMT ON TOUR: Brett Eldredge & Thomas Rhett - Suits & Boots this fall.

Danielle Bradberry CD review - Danielle Bradberry
Danielle Bradbery has a leg up on the competition because she won season four of The Voice at the tender age of 17. She also has producer Dann Huff in her corner on her debut release. 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: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
