Tuesday is upon us and that means one thing lately — Danielle Bradbery is answering the #DBRequestLine and we are listening wholeheartedly to what she has to say on the other end. This time Danielle has taken a dance track, stripped it down, and added vulnerability and emotion that no one could have seen coming when listening to the original Ellie Goulding “Burn.”
In her ninth cover, Danielle takes on a song that forces her to practice her vocal gymnastics, hitting notes that are higher than we usually hear … from anyone. With every flip, flop, twist, and turn, Danielle flawlessly attacked “Burn,” making me wonder — why don’t more artists take the “downtime” between albums to release videos like this? While I have listened to Danielle’s entire album front to back, reviewed it, and think she is incredibly talented, those who have only heard the two radio singles have not yet been exposed to what this young, immensely gifted artist has to offer. With covers like “Burn,” it is plain to see that Danielle has something so special to bring the music industry.
Quite simply, Danielle and her team are pure geniuses, as the weekly Request Line has kept fans talking, caused interest to pique, and has opened the eyes of people who might not have realized this artist was capable of such greatness. With “Burn,” Danielle once again shows us that a country girl can step out of the genre with one foot and conquer another sound, while always remaining true to her roots. If Ellie Goulding fans get a hold of this, I am fairly certain Danielle will have a whole new branch of her fan base, as this cover is one of the most spectacular to date.
