Sunny Sweeney - The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sunny Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, as Rolling Stone put it: “Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as AmericanaFest.”
Just as comfortable commanding a stadium stage on tour with Bob Seger as she is pouring her heart out from a listening-room stool, she is an outlier: A humble East Texas kid with super-star chops, singing her own songs made up of equal parts wit, soul, and hard truth. Five albums into a career that has earned praise from Rolling Stone, NPR, American Songwriter, and more, Sunny has drawn a loyal following, experienced the major label deal, and ultimately, embraced her independence––and smart country music that likes to have its rock and honky tonk too is that much better for it.
Sweeney will release a new studio album in fall of 2022 produced by Paul Cauthen and Beau Bedford.
