Well, this didn’t take much time at all, did it? Less than 24 hours after she was declared the winner of “The Voice” season 4, we have now learned that Danielle Bradbery has managed to land herself on a pretty important record label in Nashville.
In a post on Twitter today, Big Machine Records confirmed that Bradbery has joined Cassadee Pope as a winner of “The Voice” who is a part of their label. If you wonder whether or not this group (which has some complicated connections to Universal, the parent company that owns NBC and “The Voice”) has experience navigating teenage country singers to big careers, know that they are also responsible for launching the career of a certain superstar known as Taylor Swift. At the moment, they have helped to make Pope the most-successful winner in the show’s history as her lead single “Wasting All These Tears” actually sold more than 100,000 copies, landed a strong debut on the Billboard Hot 100, and has started to get adds on the always-fickle country radio.
As for the runner-ups, there are no plans yet for Michelle Chamuel or the Swon Brothers. Given that they have had some more musical opportunities in the past, it may be a little more difficult for them to find a home. Nonetheless, we’re confident that they will get an opportunity to do some more of what they love. (Remember, season 1’s Vicci Martinez did have a modest hit with “Come Along,” so anything is possible.)
Do you think that this is the right spot for Danielle to end up following the show? If you want to read some of what Blake Shelton had to say about this season, you can do so over at the link here.
