Texas-born Sunny Sweeney is a country artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and the ability to hold a crowd in the palm of her hand. She is the party and the morning after. She’s the quip that makes you laugh and the truth that makes you cry, the devil that’s egging you on and the angel whispering that you aren’t alone. But those compelling contradictions aren’t what’s most interesting about Sweeney; it’s the the depth and brazen authencity she bring to all the roles she inhabits through song.
Sunny Sweeney has is an uncanny knack for keeping listeners on their toes. Hard-drinking ballads mingle with extraordinarily honest confessionals, delivered in a soul-piercing voice that alternates between tough and tender. Her most recently released album, Trophy, shows that the wit and honesty that have always defined her stone-cold country have blossomed into complex songwriting for grown-ups, that is still whiskey-drenched and honky-tonk ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real.
