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.
