Dakota Bradley – 10 Random Questions

Dakota Bradley

St.Louis native Dakota Bradley is slowly but surely making a name for himself in country music. His voice is nothing short of perfection and his looks? Well, let's just say his concerts aren't lacking the screaming girls for miles. Dakota learned how to play guitar at the age of 12 and decided to form a band. Despite his age, he was able to play in clubs around his town. At just sixteen years old he moved to Nashville to persue his dream and was noticed by Tim Mcgraw's producer Byron Gallimore. Byron was so impressed with this young, raw talent that he signed him to Streamsound Records. Dakota has a timeless voice, but with influences such as Steven Tyler & Guns N Roses I guess I can see why.

18-year-old Dakota Bradley has fought hard to get to where he is; going through some difficult times during his teens, he teamed up with another aspiring artist and wrote 'The Girl Is Mine', which became a hit on YouTube. It was so much of a hit, in fact, that they were invited to perform on The Ellen Show, and it wasn't long before Dakota was writing with big producers, not least Tim McGraw, who ended up producing every song on the album after being really impressed with his talent. Dakota brings the powerful, raw energy of rock to his songs, but is
definitely very much a country artist at heart. I interviewed him to find out what makes him tick, his newfound success, and the scoop on his new album.

How
have you been taking all this success?

All of this success has been such a life changing experience. It's
unbelievable to sit back and think about what I'm doing and how far I've come.
