We had the chance to catch up with “The Voice” season four winner, Danielle Bradbery, on the 51st Annual CMA Awards Red Carpet, and she played a little game with us and the ol’ trusty Magic 8-Ball.


“Will I get a number one next year,” she asked. “MOST LIKELY,” the Magic 8-Ball read.

Danielle Bradbery’s new album. “I Don’t Believe We’ve Met,” will be released on December 1.

“I am more than ready to re-introduce myself with music that is true to my story and my sound after diving into the writing process over the past four years,” said Bradbery. “With I Don’t Believe We’ve Met,” I got the opportunity to work with amazing writers and producers that brought out my unique style and allowed me to tap into so many different influences. This is the beginning of a new chapter for me, and I am so excited for everyone to hear what we’ve made.”

The album comes after Danielle’s four-year “songwriting journey” where she worked alongside Thomas Rhett, Emily Weisband, Jeff Pardo, Rhett Akins, and Nicolle Galyon to pen seven of the 10 tracks on the album.

Will “Sway,” her lead single from the album, be the one that earns her a no. 1 next year?

Garth Brooks Won CMA Entertainer of the Year, Then Admitted to Lip Syncing?

For the sixth time in his storied career and second consecutive year, Garth Brooks was crowned the CMA Entertainer of the Year during the 51st Annual CMA Awards. Garth won the award on the heels of selling upwards of 6 million tickets to 400 shows in 3 years as he ends his current tour with wife Trisha Yearwood.

While backstage addressing the press, Brooks wasted no time in thanking his band and crew for their tireless effort to put on a huge show night after night. He also admitted to lip syncing his performance of “Ask Me How I Know.”


“We’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days. Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days,” he explained. “We did a game-time call on whether to sing the track or lip-sync, and decided to lip-sync. The voice just isn’t there anymore, and you want to represent country music as best you can.”

Brooks’ on-stage speech during the show was different and he did not address the lip syncing, “getting this presented to me by the entertainer of a lifetime, I thank you. Miranda [Lambert] said it best, Little Big Town said it best — we’re a family. All you guys down here on the front row: We can all agree on one thing. Let’s all raise a toast. … to the band and crew. I was talking to Kelsea [Ballerini] backstage about how we get to do this for a living. … The most important thing other than God…is you [fans]. …I love you guys. We’re a family.”
