The album opens with breezy lead single, “Sway,” which has been gaining popularity at country radio and climbing Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The upbeat pop-country melody is complimented by Bradbery’s smooth vocals and is a tap-your-toe track right out the gate. “Potential,” another pre-released single off the album, is more like reading a page straight out of Bradbery’s diary than listening to a song. Bradbery’s impressive vocal range on the track prove her growth in depth and vocal maturity that has occurred over the past few years. She tells the story of being swept up in the idea of someone, rather than actually being in love with them, with lyrics like”I’m not in love with you / I’m in love with your potential.”
No longer bound by traditional country sounds, Bradbery pulls out pop-flares in songs “What Are We Doing,” and “Can’t Stay Mad.” “Worth It,” an intense and emotional ballad off the record is a bluesy anthem preaching the message of standing up for yourself to prove others wrong who might doubt you. Just as in “Potential,” “Worth It” gives Bradbery a chance to truly show off her depth and range as an artist, with beautiful, flowing vocals throughout the track.
The album closes with more of an acoustic stripped down track, “Laying Low,” which ends the album proving Bradbury’s raw and natural talent. It is clear that Bradbery’s sophomore album is a labor of love, handwork and a story of the true journey over the years to find her voice as an artist and the opening of a new chapter in her career. We’re excited to have finally met the re-introduced Danielle Bradbery.
