Renowned for her thoroughly entertaining live shows, Entertainment Focus picked Sweeney’s set in its iconic moments of The Long Road festival 2022, praising her “warmth, class, style and devastating humour” and Lonesome Highway in its 15 of the best from Americanafest 2022 said she was “sassy, funny and in splendid voice throughout.”

Sweeney’s new album Married Alone was released to huge critical acclaim and widespread radio play last year. Appearing on many Best of the Year lists, Country Music People declared it “A classic” and Holler described Sweeney as “”A country music fireball who mixes up a Tennessee songwriting suss with a Texas taste for trouble, she’s equally capable of mixing it up with music city’s mainstream as she is the outsiders and misfits from alt-country’s fringes.”

Produced by Paul Cauthen and The Texas Gentlemen’s Beau Bedford, Married Alone navigates heartbreak, starting over, and all the steps in between, and confirms Sweeney’s place in the pantheon of great country/Americana songwriters. Guests on the album include Cauthen and country legend Vince Gill on the emotional title track.

More About Sunny Sweeney: Sunny Sweeney is a country and Americana artist from Texas, currently based in Nashville, TN. Her latest album is Married Alone, a raw, vulnerable exploration of loss, grief, and healing recorded in Dallas, TX, and co-produced by fellow country artist Paul Cauthen and The Texas Gentlemen’s Beau Bedford. Sweeney debuted in 2006 with the acclaimed Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame, which announced her as an important new voice in country and Americana songwriting. 2011’s Concrete produced the top 40 country singles “From a Table Away,” “Staying’s Worse Than Leaving” and “Drink Myself Single,” and led to a Top Female Artist nomination at the 2013 ACM Awards. Sweeney continued to expand upon the traditional-leaning, forward-thinking sound of her earlier work with 2014’s Provoked and 2017’s Trophy, both of which earned Sweeney rave reviews across the country and roots communities.
