Bradbery releases "Goodbye Summer' video with Rhett
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
– Danielle Bradbery has released a video for "Goodbye Summer" with help from Thomas Rhett.
"Goodbye Summer" was re-recorded as a duet. The song appeared under the title of "Hello Summer" off Bradbery's sophomore album "I Don't Believe We've Met."
Directed by Shaun Silva, the video was filmed on the shores of Rosemary Beach, Fla. and tells the bittersweet story of short-lived romance.
"It has been amazing to see the storyline of 'Goodbye Summer' played out," said Bradbery. "The video shares the emotions that come with a summer love. Shaun Silva had such a beautiful vision for this video and really brought it to life. It was a lot of fun to have Thomas Rhett join me for the shoot in one of my favorite places, 30A."
The official music video premiered exclusively with Refinery29 on Monday.
"Watching this song grow since I first recorded the demo has been really fun," said Rhett, who wrote the original rendition alongside Rhett Akins, Julian Bunetta and The Cadillac Three's Jaren Johnston. "30A was the perfect place to bring the video to life...we had a blast shooting it."
Silva said, "Few things brand our hearts and minds the way a summer romance does. This song and this video tell that classic love story, where the sand of a coastal beach community is the same as the sand that falls freely from an hourglass. Our time may be limited, but the way we live in that moment is reckless and beautiful. It's one of the few things we go into knowing what the end result must be, but for some reason we let go, give in, love... and in the end, we hurt but we don't regret."
Shortly after this story of beachfront romance was captured in beautiful Rosemary Beach, the area was struck by Category 4 Hurricane Michael, the strongest storm on record to hit the Florida Panhandle. As someone who saw her own mother's home in Houston damaged by Hurricane Harvey last year, Bradbery felt compelled to help.
"Rosemary Beach has always been a special place to me, especially now that we captured its beauty in this video," said Bradbery. "I knew I wanted to help out the local community after Hurricane Michael hit, and the Rosemary Beach Foundation is the perfect organization to partner with. They were immediately providing meals and supplies to the people who lost everything, and now they're distributing funds to local organizations involved in relief efforts - supporting everything from the rebuilding of homes to purchasing supplies for local schools."

CD reviews for Danielle Bradbery
Danielle Bradbery has a leg up on the competition because she won season four of The Voice at the tender age of 17. She also has producer Dann Huff in her corner on her debut release. And that means - no surprise whatsoever - that Bradbery opts very decidedly for a pop, highly commercial sheen on her brand of what passes for country these days.
Yes, there is an occasional mandolin (at the get go of the lead-off Young in America, and Talk About Love) or similar instrumentation, but the emphasis »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
