Episode 150 with Sunny Sweeney

Sweeney releases new album on Sept 23rd

Sunny Sweeney’s new album, Married Alone, drops on September 23rd via Thirty Tigers. Produced by Paul Cauthen and The Texas Gentlemen’s Beau Bedford, Married Alone takes listeners on a vibey ride from rowdy juke joints to lonely hotel rooms over the course of twelve tracks. Ranging from sweet acoustic Americana to painful, pedal steel ballads to unrestrained breakup kiss-offs to an emotional duet with country legend Vince Gill, the album captures perfectly the broad spectrum of Sweeney’s talents as a songwriter and a performer.

Sweeney is also the host of a new morning show on Willie Nelson’s exclusive SiriusXM channel, Willie’s Roadhouse (ch. 59) and on the SXM App, dubbed Sunny Side Up. On weekday mornings, from 6 am until noon ET, Sweeney presents over four decades of classic country hits from the ‘50s through the ‘80s by artists including the channel’s namesake Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and many more.

Sweeney chats with us about her new album, her radio show and her career.
