Danielle Bradbery, heart scraped raw, exhales the pain of loving someone who’s long gone with her latest release “Break My Heart Again,” out now via Big Machine Records.
With a tender, swirling vocal, she pulls back the veil on her ache, need, desire for an ex-lover one more time. Against a simple track, the powerhouse vocalist weaves an emotionally complex performance that will remind you why some lovers may leave, but their memory will always remain.

Danielle immediately felt connected to the song written by Rob Grimaldi (“Butter”) and Riley Biederer upon hearing it nearly two years ago and the simplicity suits her guileless vocals.
“When writing a song, usually it’s coming from a place that’s personal. For me I’m always trying to put out what’s truly real to me and real for my fans,” Danielle explains. “Even though I wasn’t in the room when this song was created, there’s still something so special about listening to a song that you immediately feel something for, as if you were there writing it.”
Not since Bonnie Raitt’s raw good-bye, “I Can’t Make You Love Me” has a song captured the desire for something that’s gone. With a cascading piano, a naked vocal and a lyric that is conversation confessional, producer Nathan Chapman fashions an intimate cloud of angst and yearning.
“I played the demo over and over again for a while and I could not let the song go from my hands. I had empathy for this girl in the song that was so torn from the heavy feelings she had towards this guy and what they were going through. I have felt it at a point in my life, and I know others have too,“ Danielle continues. “So, let the song tell you it’s story all while the melody takes you on a unique journey.”
Danielle premiered the track on NBC’s Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships: Prevagen Skating Spectacular in a powerful performance alongside Olympic skater Karen Chen.
As she prepares to release more new music this year, Danielle’s last release, “Stop Draggin’ Your Boots” shows a side of herself we’ve never seen before in a fiery coming-of-age declaration. Kicking off a new chapter in 2020 with her most mature sound to date, Danielle infused her own heartfelt and personal stories into the butterfly-inducing “Never Have I Ever” and nostalgic “Girls In My Hometown.” The 25-year-old artist has come a long way since getting her start winning Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice, earning multiple award nominations and touring across the globe with Kane Brown, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, and more.
