Danielle Bradbery Eager to Join Thomas Rhett and Brett Eldredge on 2015 CMT on Tour – Danielle Bradbery has plenty of rehearsing to do this summer. The 18-year-old will hit the road this fall as the opening act for Thomas Rhett and Brett Eldredge on their joint headlining 2015 CMT on Tour. “There was a little bit of screaming and dancing a little bit,” Bradbery tells The Boot of the moment she received an invitation to join the trek. “I love those two. They’re so talented. They’re the hottest guys in country music right now. It’s amazing to be a part of that and to know [that] the crowd [will be] a mixture of their fans and my fans — it’s going to be so much fun.” – Read more at The Boot

Most of their queries were preceded by declarations of love and their questions focused on everything from song arrangements to gender to the group’s personal pets.
On My Way Home follows the a cappella quintet on their 2015 sold-out North American tour and includes behind-the-scenes footage and onstage performances. “Our manager told us, ‘What you do is so interesting and unique, it would be cool to document your tour because you’ll also be doing your first original album at the same time,'” Scott Hoying told Billboard just before the screening. – Read more at Billboard.com
