At the blind auditions on March 25, 2013, Bradbery performed Taylor Swift‘s “Mean”, prompting Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Usher to turn their chairs.

At the Battle rounds, Bradbery faced Caroline Glaser where they sang the song “Put Your Records On“, Bradbery was chosen over Glaser, in the process advanced to the Knockout rounds. During the Knockouts, Bradbery sang “Jesus Take The Wheel” against Taylor Beckham in which Blake selected her to remain in the competition, sending home Beckham. During the Top 16 show, she sang “Maybe It Was Memphis” and was voted through by America into the next week. The following week, the country singer sang a rendition of Carrie Underwood‘s song “Wasted.” During the Top 10 playoffs, Bradbery sang a rendition of “Heads Carolina, Tails California“, which became the first song of the season, and only song of that round, to reach the iTunes top 10 charts.[5]

During the Top 8, Bradbery sang a rendition of “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Ol’ Days).” In the Top 6, she sang Pam Tillis‘ “Shake the Sugar Tree” chosen by coach Blake Shelton. That week, she also sang a powerhouse rendition of Sara Evans‘ “A Little Bit Stronger,” ending the song with a high note through the final “stronger” and “yeah” run. During the Top 5, Bradbery sang “Please Remember Me” and “Who I Am” which reached 6 and 4 spots respectively on the iTunes top 10 charts. During “Who I Am,” she walked out through the audience to sing beside her proud mom, dad, and stepmom.[5] At the finals, Bradbery sang the song “Timber, I’m Falling In Love” along with her coach Blake Shelton, she also re-sang the song “Maybe It Was Memphis” which would this time reach the iTunes top 10 charts and sang the song “Born to Fly” then she was announced as the winner of season four of The Voice.[5] She had the most peak positions and most singles to reach the top 10 on iTunes during the season.
