Seventeen-year-old Danielle Bradbery charmed her way into the national spotlight with a mix of Country hits from several decades during Season 4 of The Voice.
The reigning star of the NBC hit show has become the youngest winner ever and her coach, Blake Shelton, called her, “the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice stage.” The Texas native earned high praise for her performances of classics like “Maybe It Was Memphis” (Pam Tillis), “Born To Fly” (Sara Evans) and “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days )” (The Judds) as well as her duet with Shelton of Patty Loveless’ hit “Timber, I’m Falling In Love.” Danielle’s covers of these top Country songs landed her on the top of the iTunes Country Chart multiple times throughout the season, making her the highest selling artist and youngest in the show’s history.
Danielle has been in the studio with acclaimed producers Brett James and Dann Huff and released her first Big Machine Records single “Heart of Dixie” to Country Radio on July 16.

The Swon Brothers are an American country music duo from Muskogee, Oklahoma, consisting of Zach Swon and Colton Swon. In 2013, they finished in third place on the fourth season of NBC’s The Voice.
“We traveled with our parents every weekend playing churches. Our parents were offered record deals here and there,” recalls Zach. “But the most important thing to them was keeping the family and the band together.”
“After leaving the road, their parents formed a family-style variety show back in Oklahoma in a nearby town, Wagoner, OK and soon Zach and Colton were charming crowds each week and cutting their musical teeth on everything from Elvis to Frank Sinatra.”
“The Swons show at the Civic Center in Wagoner became very popular and soon they were filling the building to capacity as fans packed in week after week to watch them entertain. After building quite a following, Zach and Colton decided to begin playing as a duo and focused even more on their songwriting. Both have been writing since they were very young and now they return to Nashville on a regular basis to co-write.”
“Before coming to “The Voice,” Zach and Colton have spent the prior few years performing around their home state and releasing their CDs on their own label which have been well-received among their ever-growing fan base. Songs like the irresistibly catchy “Oklahoma Lovin’” and the bluesy, soulful, “This Close To Gone,” not only show off their diverse vocal strengths, but also their ability to pen gripping lyrics that resonate with audiences from young to old. Their strong brotherly bond is undeniable in their performances as they good-naturedly rib and tease each other onstage and trade off on tunes.”
