#TOTD of May 26th: Young in America by Danielle Bradbery
For fans of: Cassadee Pope, Kacey Musgraves, Megan & Liz
Happy Memorial Day, cool kids! First, I’m so excited to be back posting daily tunes. I know there is so much wonderful warm-weather music out there and I can’t wait to discover it. Second, I can’t wait to kick back for the holiday today. While you’re enjoying some time off, take a break from grillin’ and sipping on those delish drinks remember the real meaning of this day: celebrating those who lost their lives while serving in the Armed Forces.
Because everyone is being incredibly patriotic today, I wanted to showcase Danielle Bradbery’s track “Young in America.” You’re probably familiar with Danielle as the season 4 winner of The Voice and this track comes from her first album, released not long after her win.
While Danielle is continuously praised for being the youngest winner of the show, what I think is even more impressive is that she is steering her career in a direction that is decidedly un-Taylor Swift. Being a young, wavy-haired blonde (abeit she’s now traded blonde for a light brown) country singer already raises a few Taylor Swift comparisons, and not to mention the fact that Danielle sang Taylor’s song “Mean” for her The Voice audition. But while watching this video I didn’t once think of Taylor. The concept for the video is different from anything Taylor has released and Danielle’s sound is also leaps and bounds from the work Taylor has crafted over the years, so I definitely give Danielle props for that.
In other Memorial Day news, I also created a Rockin’ Red, White & Blue playlist over at Girls’ Life for you to jam out to at your family BBQ. Oh, and if you’re looking for a music festival for two to hit up this summer, I’ve got all the info you need right here.
