Which Former Reality Show Contestant Will Score A Country Number One First?
Yet another country artist has won a major reality competition, as Danielle Bradbery took the crown on the latest season of The Voice. She joins a lot of winners and near winners from the past couple years on The Voice, American Idol, and The X Factor as reality contestants just waiting for their big break and a country number one. But who will get there first?
He’s been out there the longest and he’s come the closest, landing at number 15 with ‘I Love You This Big,’ following his win two years ago on American Idol. His current single, ‘See You Tonight’ is moving pretty strong now, and it could be the one.
As runner up to Scotty, she’s followed pretty much the same path. She’s had three good singles that failed to get steam, and she’s now on her second album’s first single. ‘Barefoot and Buckwild’ is getting some attention, but has yet to hit the charts.
I’ve talked to a lot of fans of The X Factor who think he could be the next superstar in country, but since his win, the silence has been deafening. His first single, ‘Power of A Love Song’ had the chops to be a hit, but went away just as quick as it came along. If he gets the right song, super stardom could be closer than you think.
This former rocker really bloomed under Blake Shelton’s guidance, winning the last season of The Voice. They’ve spent time in Nashville grooming her into being a potential star, and now her first single, ‘Wasting All These Tears’ has jumped into the top 50. It has crossover appeal and great vocals, and may start moving really fast once people hear it.
Already a known entity in Nashville, writing with some of the best and doing showcases at the legendary Bluebird Cafe, Kree just got that extra boost while finishing second on American Idol. Her first single to radio is ‘All Cried Out,’ which was her winning song on Idol, but those rarely make a spark. (Carrie Underwood ‘Inside Your Heaven’ Anyone?) I think Kree has a future, only how soon will it take her to the top?
The latest winner of The Voice showed that she’s truly country, busting out songs that most 16-year-olds wouldn’t even know from artists like Pam Tillis and The Judds. The only thing she has against her is the young age. If she can show maturity in developing her career, she will be on a fast track to number one.
So which one do you think will score a number one first. Answer the poll below and let us know.
