Danielle Bradbery, the Texas teen who had never performed in public but became the season 4 winner of The Voice Tuesday night, has a record deal.

And not just any record deal: She's been signed by Taylor Swift's label.

Just one day after Bradbery picked up the big prize, making her coach, birthday boy Blake Shelton, proud, Nashville's Big Machine Records scooped up the talented 16-year-old singer.

She is slated to begin recording next week, Just Jared reports.

Along with Swift, Bradbery's new label mates include country superstars Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw.

Bradbery, the season's youngest contestant, attended high school in Cypress, Texas, before impressing The Voice's coaches with her perfect pitch and vocal maturity as she tackled songs by veteran singers.

Usher called her talent "God-sent."

Shelton said Tuesday of Bradbery, "I think it's the most important win we have had so far on The Voice because Danielle is the first winner on The Voice that had no professional experience in the past."

"People are just wrapped around her finger for a reason," Shelton said. "God sprinkled just a little bit more on Danielle Bradbery than he did the rest of us and I'm just glad to call her a friend."
