Danielle Bradbery puts a cowboy’s careless ways on notice in the new single, “Stop Draggin’ Your Boots,” a fiery foot-stomper filled with self-assured attitude.

Featuring twin fiddles and mixed with bluesy, pop-country production — plus a boldly sensual ultimatum — the track finds a young artist standing up for herself with a blazing heart, and telling a player to “get real or go home.”

“This song is a fiery anthem for every girl that’s ever felt strung along by a guy. The bold lyrics and sassy beat really pulled me in and reminded me of that fun, Shania Twain, 90’s country pop vibe that I’m pumped to channel that into my music” Bradbery says. “It made me feel for the times my friends and I have been in the middle of these situation-ships. There’s no longer room for wishy-washy feelings or time for you to be unsure – you’re either all in or you’re out.”

“Stop Draggin’ Your Boots” was written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson. Bradbery enlisted video director David McClister to help bring it to life, imagining herself as a femme-fatale cowgirl with a sleek new look — and sleek new dance moves courtesy of choreographer Joy Denver Spears️️️️️️️.

Meanwhile, the new track follows a series of next-chapter music from Danielle Bradbery, who first gained attention as a teenaged contestant on NBC’s The Voice. Her recent releases include “Never Have I Ever” and “Girls In My Hometown,” plus a Spanish-language collaboration with KURT on  Never Have I Ever” (“Yo Nunca He…”), where the singer highlights her family’s Mexican heritage.
