Biography

Songfacts says: Texan Country artist Sunny Sweeney’s debut studio album, Heartbreaker’s Hall Of Fame, was critically acclaimed but failed to impress radio, and none of the album’s three singles charted. However, she achieved a breakthrough when From A Table Away became her first record to enter the Hot 100 when it debuted at #96 on the chart dated January 22, 2011.

Between having three dogs named Merle, Nash, and Dolly and an East Texas accent so pronounced you could pick her out in a crowded honky-tonk from across the room, Sunny Sweeney is so country she probably snores Loretta Lynn melodies in her sleep. That much was clear long, long before she ever got around to recording her debut album, Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame . So what the hell she was thinking when she skipped off to New York City shortly after graduation to pursue a career in theater or comedy instead of conquering the dancehall and opry circuit back home is anyone’s guess. Maybe she was just testing herself — making absolutely sure she was born to be a country singer, not just another pretty young improv-comedian from Longview, Texas, lighting up the Great White Way.

Or, you know, maybe a waitress, nanny, dog walker or cubicle drone.
