Danielle Bradbery is the young country singing sensation who captured the hearts of viewers on The Voice. She went on to win the competition on Tuesday, becoming the youngest singer ever to ever do so.
Seeing Danielle with such extraordinary talent at such a young age, it's hard not to think of Taylor Swift, who also took the music industry by storm at 16 years old when she released her self-titled debut album.
Not to mention, Danielle bears a striking resemblance to Taylor with her long blonde hair, thin frame and unassuming smile.
Also, during a recent TODAY Show appearance, Danielle said she is interested in becoming a pop country artist.
So, will Danielle be the next Taylor Swift?
While only time will tell, Danielle does seem to have the singing chops to pull it off...and she has the same mass appeal that Taylor does, which was confirmed by the fact that America chose her to be the winner of The Voice.
Plus, with the news that Danielle was just signed to Taylor's record label, Big Machine Records, it seems her chances of following in the young starlet's footsteps are now even better.
Still, there are a few differences that could play a pivotal role in whether or not Danielle does go on to achieve Taylor's level of success.
First of all, Taylor had a history of singing and performing before she released her first album, whereas Danielle had only performed twice in public before trying out for The Voice.
Second, unlike Danielle, who is strictly a singer (for now!), Taylor plays guitar AND writes most of her own music.
The third thing that Danielle has working against her is that The Voice is yet to produce a breakout star the way that American Idol has with Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood...but, there's always a first for everything!
Do you think Danielle will become the next Taylor Swift?
