It was followed with highly regarded albums, See You Tonight and Christmas with Scotty McCreery, which yielded more hit songs and accolades.
Bradbery, the 17-year-old singing sensation and recent winner of Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice, opens for McCreery. She was the youngest contestant to come in first place on the hit television show.
