OFFSTAGE: Danielle Bradbery on Back-to-School Decisions

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

New book bags, new locker combinations, new schedules, new clothes. Those are at the heart of almost every 17-year-old’s back-to-school process this time of year. But Danielle Bradbery, the reigning winner of The Voice, hasn’t decided if she will even go back to her Texas high school or not. Right now, she’s hard at work on her debut country album, so how could she possibly fit history, biology, English, algebra and a foreign language into a day already packed with songwriting, recording, listening and mixing? “Now that this is continuing, it’s kind of up in the air right now,” Bradbery said in a recent radio interview. “But we’re definitely trying to figure out if I should go back to school or keep online schooling. It depends on my schedule. We’re thinking if I went back to my regular school, it’d be kinda crazy!”
