Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sunny Sweeney will perform at The Southgate House Revival onMarch 5 in support of her fourth album Trophy, which will release on March 10th via Thirty Tigers. Trophy, featuring the young troubadour’s most serious set of songs, offers a new side of Sunny Sweeney. Rolling Stone Country recently included the album on their list of “2017’s Most Anticipated Albums.” View HERE. Rootsy and real, Trophy showcases Sweeney’s maturation as a songwriter and as an artist growing into her own.
Trophy is the follow-up to Provoked (2014), which offered a glimpse into where Sweeney was headed. Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, No Depression, The Washington Post and Elle are just a handful of the outlets that supported Sweeney’s direction. NPR’s All Things Considered said, “Sunny Sweeney has all the right stuff for country stardom – a Texas pedigree, a heart-melting voice, stunning looks and the ability to seem both tough and vulnerable”. On Concrete, her 2011 major label release, Sweeney became the first female artist to reach the Top 10 on the country radio charts in over a decade.
Sunny Sweeney has never been afraid to write about personal experiences. Her unapologetic honesty and revealing vulnerability show her as an artist who is equally as tough as she is tender. Trophy represents an artist confident in what she has to say and grateful to be able to say it. Though she didn’t set out to, Sweeney co-wrote the majority of the album with female writers, including four songs with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Lori McKenna. Her resulting songs capture the feminine experience with a combination of nuance, humor and accuracy only possible from the perspective of Sweeney and her collaborators.Trophy was produced by Grammy-nominated engineer/producer Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark’s 12 Stories).
