Danielle Bradbery made her way to the Bobby Bones Show Aug. 3, where her knowledge of popular songs on the radio was put to the test.
After chatting about her new song featuring Thomas Rhett titled “Goodbye Summer,” Bones challenged Bradbery and co-host Amy Brown to a musical game requiring them to guess notable songs by their piano-only versions.
As it turns out, the country star immediately recognized Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line‘s “Meant to Be,” and quickly picked up Sam Hunt‘s signature “Body Like a Back Road.” She struggled with several others, though, trying and failing to identify Sugarland‘s “Babe”— and she couldn’t help but giggle trying to make out Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood‘s “The Fighter.”
For what it’s worth, Brown jokingly thought the latter was Drake’s “In My Feelings,” which prompted the “Worth It” singer to admit that she knows the viral dance to the hit (which involves grooving next to a moving vehicle) and has performed it in front of her band. “They’ve seen me do it next to a golf cart,” she laughs.
Bradbery recently released the sweet “Goodbye Summer,” which is the original title of a demo she received from writers Rhett, Julian Bunetta, Rhett Akins and Jaren Johnston that became “Hello Summer” on her album I Don’t Believe We’ve Met.
“Thomas Rhett was one of the first mentors I had in Nashville and we’ve become really good friends over the years,” Bradbery relates. “He’s like a big brother to me, so to be able to record a song he wrote was incredibly special.
“I remember when I first heard the demo, I actually jammed to it with Thomas Rhett’s vocal on it as if it wasn’t even going to be mine. Now to have the opportunity to re-record the song with him — it’s a dream scenario.”
