Danielle Bradbery dropped a new single, “Goodbye Summer,” featuring Thomas Rhett. The mid-tempo song is a re-imagining of “Hello Summer,” which was featured on Danielle’s 2017 sophomore album, I Don’t Believe We’ve Met
Thomas Rhett co-wrote the original rendition with Rhett Akins, Julian Bunetta and Jaren Johnston.
“Thomas Rhett was one of the first mentors I had in Nashville and we’ve become really good friends over the years,” says Danielle. “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.”
“It’s been fun watching this song evolve since I first recorded the demo,” TR 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.”
The tune will ship to country radio on Aug. 27.
