Danielle Bradbery Twitter: "Excited to Sing the National Anthem for NFL Kickoff 2013" / 'The Voice' Winner Working On Album, Fall Release / "Heart of Dixie" Lyrics [VIDEO]

Since winning The Voice Season 4, Danielle Bradbery has signed a record deal, released a single ["Heart of Dixie"], and is now busy working on her first album.

Now Danielle Bradbery is scheduled to perform with fellow country star Keith Urban at this year's "NFL Kickoff 2013" presented by Pepsi. Bradbery will perform the national anthem at Sports Authority Field in Denver kicking off the first game of the season between the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. 

Bradbery took to Twitter to announce the news to her fans earlier today:

Danielle Bradbery @DBradbery:

"So excited to sing the National Anthem for the NFL Kickoff 2013!"

Even when she was just a contestant on Season 4 of The Voice, Danielle Bradbery always had a knack for seeing songs about heartache and alcoholism; song topics well beyond her years. For some reason judge Blake Shelton always chose old country standards with whiskey-drinking exes and single moms working dead end jobs.

Since winning The Voice Season 4, Danielle Bradbery shows no sign of changing. When she debuted her first single, "Heart of Dixie" on July 17 live on NBC's Today Show, fans could hear the 17-year old was still singing about the same mid-life crisis.

"She had a dead-end job at the National Bank / And a deadbeat husband who always drank / So when he didn't come home / She had the gin to thank for the tears in her eyes / So Dixie packed up and said her goodbyes," is the first verse of the song.

After winning the fourth season of The Voice, Bradbery signed a deal with Big Machine Label Group, the same company that represents Taylor Swift. Bradbery has been busy in the studio with songwriter Brett James, who also co-wrote the single with Troy Verges and Caitlyn Smith.



"Heat of Dixie" is the first single off of Bradbery's upcoming record scheduled for a fall 2013 release.

Full lyrics for "Heart of Dixie"

She had a dead end job at the national bank
And a deadbeat husband who always drank
So when he didn't come home he had the gin to thank
For the tears in her eyes
So Dixie packed up and said her goodbyes

Chorus:

And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
Flyin' just fast enough to leave it all behind her
But she didn't know 'til she hit the road, deep in her soul
She's got the fire and the fight of the gypsy
Ain't nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
The heart of Dixie

It's a funny thing when your world falls down
It's got a way of showing you what you're all about
Now Dixie's got her wheels pointed south
She ain't never looking back
And nobody knew she must leave like that

Chorus:

And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
Flyin' just fast enough to leave it all behind her
But she didn't know 'til she hit the road, deep in her soul
She's got the fire and the fight of the gypsy
Ain't nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
The heart of Dixie

Yeah Dixie woke up to the truth one day
Grabbed her cheap sun glasses and a lipstick case
