Admirers of music in general often look to it for support in times of great emotion, and the running joke for those that don’t often listen to country music specifically is that it’s geared only towards those that have ‘lost their wife, truck, dog,’ and not necessarily in that order.

Sunny Sweeney, Houston-born and Longview-raised singer/songwriter and now Texas Hill Country resident (Austin-based), has found the key that unlocks that enigmatic bond between the listener’s heart and mind. Her second album (Concrete, released in 2011), which won accolades, shaped stage appearances, spawned many hit singles as well as tour opportunities supporting bigger names in the industry, came at a time when personal turmoil truly tested the artist. But with a perseverance that speaks to the same resiliency that the state she is proud to call home itself embodies, Sunny employed the situation and time in her life to inspire her third release entitled Provoked (circulated August, 2014.)
