iTunes Editors’ Notes

On her debut release, Sunny Sweeney doesn’t push hard in typical country diva fashion. What she does do is sing with conviction, savvy and style, making the most of an excellent batch of tunes. Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame may be the most impressive neo-traditional country release by a female artist since the Dixie Chicks’ early albums. East Texas native Sweeney is well versed in hardcore honkytonk angst — songs like “Refresh My Memory” and “Lavender Blue” indulge in post-breakup regret with just the right tinge of masochism. She’s tough enough to laugh at her dreams of stardom (the wry “Next Big Nothing”), and when Sunny cops a sassy attitude in “East Texas Pines” and the title number, she’s undeniable. Reaching back to the ‘80s, she offers a soulful reading of Thom Schuyler’s ode to the struggling musician, “16th Avenue.” Just as successful is her version of Iris DeMent’s unabashedly sentimental “Mama’s Opry.” Sweeney benefits from sympathetic backup on these tracks, particularly by veteran guitar picker Tommy Detamore. All told, Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame is a galvanizing first effort by a singer with potential as big as the Lone Star State.

Customer Reviews

GREAT ARTIST!

Let me start by saying I'm NOT a country music fan. I saw Sunny Sweeney live a few months ago and when I saw her album on iTunes I had to get it. She's a very talented musician and songstress. Every song is great but "If I could" is simply mind blowing! She introduced it live by saying "Every girl needs an auctioneer song." Also memorable are "Next Big Nothing" and Mama's Opery". - Have a listen! You'll be hooked like me. And if you have a chance to see her live, Take It!

They say she's too country for country... I think it's a good thing

I caught this gal and her band playing at a small tavern in Ft. Worth a few weeks ago and it was the first time I'd ever heard of her or her music. Well they blew me away and I left with a copy of the cd and it's been on my ipod, my cd player and itunes at work ever since. I'm glad this independent album is getting national notice with it's Big Machine release. I'd highly suggest this cd to anyone who's a fan of a classic country sound with a little bit of a current flavor. You will not be dissapointed.

Big Talent

East Texas Pines has been playing for weeks on XM in my office and more than once I had to get up and see who it was! Great song and awesome album....Go Sunny!!!

Biography

Born: December 7, 1976 in Longview, TX

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A brassy country singer whose retro style garnered comparisons to singers like Natalie Maines and Kasey Chambers, Sunny Sweeney grew up in Longview, Texas. Sweeney was a gutsy, musically inclined girl, if a tad unpredictable. In her senior year of high school, she busted into choir class and demanded to be allowed to sing Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" in the school's year-end show. Sweeney, who didn't even belong to the class, proceeded to belt out the song, much to the choir teacher's surprise. She got...
