At 16, Danielle Bradbery is both the winner of The Voice and a high school student. Now that she’s released her debut single, “Heart of Dixie,” she’s working to figure out how to balance her music career with her education.
“I started off high school in my huge, regular high school with everybody else but as this whole Voice thing started, I got an online schooling and it’s for students who travel, so that was a big help,” she said. “But now that this is continuing, it’s kind of up in the air right now.”
Other young country stars like Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have taken on the same challenge as Danielle. Scotty attended classes at his regular high school in between shows and is now attending college on a similar schedule. Danielle isn’t sure what route she’ll take.
“We’re definitely trying to figure out if I should go back to school or keep online schooling,” she said. “It depends on my schedule. We’re thinking if I went back to my regular school, it’d be kinda crazy. We’re still trying to figure that out.”
