Country music songstress Danielle Bradbery has unveiled her new single “Goodbye Summer,” with multi-PLATINUM artist and friend Thomas Rhett. The foot-tapping ode to short-lived romance is available at all digital retailers now.
The bittersweet song is a reimagining of “Hello Summer” from Bradbery’s sophomore album I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET (BMLG Records), now with an added male perspective.
Thomas Rhett, who wrote the original rendition alongside Rhett Akins, Julian Bunetta and the Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston, joins Bradbery on the track that Taste of Country calls a “breezy pop-infused song tinged with heartbreak, [which] paints a romantic but realistic picture of the ups and downs of love that comes with an expiration date.”
“Thomas Rhett was one of the first mentors I had in Nashville and we’ve become really good friends over the years. He’s like a big brother to me, so to be able to record a song he wrote was incredibly special,” explains Bradbery. “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.”
“It’s been fun watching this song evolve since I first recorded the demo,” Thomas Rhett said. “Danielle’s voice really took it to another level, and I’m pumped that we got the chance to team up on a new version. It’s always a blast getting to create with your friends.”
“Goodbye Summer” is the follow-up to Bradbery’s empowering single “Worth It,” a self-penned anthem which served as an introduction to her vulnerable and introspective songwriting.

About Danielle Bradbery
Twenty two-year-old, multi-faceted artist Danielle Bradbery has stepped into her own lane with sophomore album I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET, out now on BMLG Records. As the title suggests, Bradbery re-introduced herself after taking time since her debut LP to focus on the writing process and, for the first time, infusing her own story into her songs – penning seven of the album’s 10 tracks. Lead single “Sway” perfectly infused her R&B, soul and country influences, while empowering follow-up anthem “Worth It” led to US national TV performances of the emotional tune on NBC’s TODAY and The Voice. Now, Bradbery returns to radio airwaves with “Goodbye Summer,” a fresh take on album cut “Hello Summer” with Thomas Rhett adding a male perspective to the seasonal story of love and heartbreak. The Texas native has worked on fine-tuning her unique sound since getting her start winning Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice and was nominated this year for ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year as well as CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year and CMT Performance of the Year. She is currently touring fairs and festivals across the US.
