The future is looking very bright indeed for The Voice
's Danielle Bradbery
, who won the fourth season of the reality television singing competition on Tuesday night. The Texas teen has reportedly inked a deal
with Big Machine Label Group, home to Taylor Swift
, Tim McGraw, and Rascal Flatts.
At just 16, Bradbery is the youngest contestant ever to win The Voice
— and she's also the most marketable. During her time on the show, she presented herself as a typical Texas teenager, one who couldn't help but burst into squeals when she learned she'd be singing a duet with country hunk Hunter Hayes
. Bradbery is probably looking forward to meeting her colleague Taylor Swift, since she first charmed the judges in the blind auditions with a cover of Swift's "Mean."
Bradbery's coach Blake Shelton has really high hopes for the young singer, telling Entertainment Weekly,
"Danielle Bradbery, and I’ve said this on the show, I think might be the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice
stage because we’ve seen some artists come and go who’ve had record deals before, who have done some things before. Danielle Bradbery may be the first person we’ve actually discovered here on this show.”
