Currently part of the American Currents: State of the Music exhbition at The Country Music Hall of Fame alongside Luke Combs, Charley Crockett, Miranda Lambert and many more…
ACM-nominated recording artist Sunny Sweeney has long been known for her uncanny ability to straddle the line of demarcation between Texas Country and Nashville Americana. Her latest album, Married Alone (Thirty Tigers) was top 10 in the Americana charts for 24 weeks straight. Produced by Paul Cauthen and Beau Bedford, Married Alone is Sweeney’s finest work yet, bringing together confessional songwriting, image-rich narratives, and no shortage of sonic surprises for a loosely conceptual album about loss and healing.
Sweeney debuted in 2006 with the acclaimed Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame, which announced her as an important new voice in songwriting. 2011’s Concrete 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 roots communities.
Sunny Sweeney’s confessional songwriting is best enjoyed live, with some of her festival highlights so far including main stages performances at Latitude (UK), The Long Road (UK), Milport Country Music Festival (UK), The Country Rock Festival (ES), Country Festivalen Vinstra (NO), Seljord Country Festivalen (NO), Scandinavian Country Music Festival (SE), Country Gold (JP).
