Danielle Bradbery was only 16 years old when she won Season 4 of The Voice as a member of Blake Shelton‘s team. At that point, she was the youngest contestant to ever win the show.

Bradbery was an instant fan-favorite, known for her gorgeous covers of country songs such as “A Little Bit Stronger” and “Who I Am.”

The original songs she released following her win were also big hits. To date, her most popular single is her debut, “The Heart of Dixie,” which peaked at the 12th spot on the Country Airplay chart.

Now, six years after she won The Voice, Bradbery is still a force to be reckoned with in country music. She had a hit summertime single with Thomas Rhett in 2018, earned an ACM Award nomination in 2019, and keeps herself busy by performing numerous live shows.

Recently, Bradbery was scheduled to perform at the Country LakeShake Festival in Chicago. Other performers included another Voice champion, Cassadee Pope, Keith Urban, and Luke Bryan.

Bradbery was scheduled to perform on Saturday (June 22), but was unfortunately involved in a car accident on her way to the airport. As a result, she was forced to cancel her appearance at the festival.

The singer touched base with her fans following the accident, and shared a short statement apologizing that she wouldn’t be able to make it to LakeShake.

“I was in a car accident on my way to the airport, however I’m ok,” she wrote. “Getting checked out now and going to get some rest.”


LakeShake also addressed the change in schedule, sharing that Bradbery would no longer be able to make it to the festival.

She is ok, but very sore,” the festival’s statement read. “We wish her a speedy recovery!”


We too, join the folks at LakeShake in wishing Bradbery a quick and complete recovery. So thankful to hear that she’s ok!
