Hunter Hayes Surprises Danielle Bradbery With a Guitar
It’s been a week since Danielle Bradbery won Season 4 of ‘The Voice,’ helping propel Blake Shelton to a threepeat as coach. While making the promo rounds, she appeared on ‘TODAY’ on Friday (June 21), and was surprised by her duet partner Hunter Hayes, who gifted her with a guitar.
Before Hayes — who was performing as part of the breakfast show’s summer concert series — crashed her appearance in the best possible way, Bradbery spoke about having stage fright, which caused her to sing in her room, to the wall. She would even slide under the table at Thanksgiving since she was super shy. We’re glad she overcame that handicap, going on to become the winner of the most popular singing competition on TV.
The singer also revealed she wants her career to follow a pop-country trajectory. “I love country, but I want to be more pop country,” she admits. “I love all genres, but I think pop-country…”
The high schooler won Season 4 on her coach’s birthday, giving him quite a gift. In the segue of all segues, they talked about her gift, which was performing with Hayes on the finale — a huge moment for her since she is such a fan. That’s when Hayes crashed the set and presented Bradbery with his favorite guitar to play!
“This is my favorite guitar in the world,” Hayes told her. “It’s a songwriter’s best friend. It’ll be a fantastic friend for you.”
How thoughtful of him! Things just keep getting better for Danielle Bradbery.
