Danielle Bradbery already has the vocal chops needed to be a superstar. Now she’s working on honing her live performance skills and well, and her teachers include some of the hottest guys in country music.

Since winning the fourth season of NBC’s “The Voice” in 2013, Danielle has gotten the chance to tour with Brad Paisley, Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge, Scotty McCreery, Hunter Hayes and, of course, her “Voice” coach, Blake Shelton. She’s even recorded a duet with Thomas, a version of his album cut “Playing With Fire.”

Danielle says she’s learned something from each of her tour mates that she’s now applying to her own live show. And she’s actively soaking up whatever tips she can glean from watching their sets from the side of the stage.

“A lot of the guys that I’ve been on tour with, which are amazing and big names, they’re so talented,” he told Rare Country during a recent interview. “I think my favorite thing of getting on a tour is … even though they do the same exact set, same show every single night, I love going out there and watching from top to bottom. I love just taking mental notes and just how they entertain, because I personally struggle with trying to get that really cool, entertaining look on stage.

“I want to be fun for the fans and crowd, and I want to be energetic,” she adds. “I see these guys doing their thing and they have it spot on, and I learn so much.”

Danielle’s highly anticipated sophomore album, “I Don’t Believe We’ve Met,” is due out Dec. 1. Catchy first single “Sway” is available now.
