Sunny Sweeney "Sunny Sweeney" EP Review

I’ll admit that I’m a little late getting to the party so to speak with talking about Sunny Sweeney.  Sunny Sweeney is one of the best new female country artists to come on the scene with a traditional sound.  If you haven’t heard of her yet, just give it time and you will.  Sunny is not your normal artists that has been coming out lately with a pop crossover sound.  Instead Sunny shows her roots with a Texas twang that she just can’t hide in her songs.  Country music has been missing this presence since Leeann Womack started fading from the air waves of country radio.
While this isn’t her first album, her newest EP release has helped introduce her to a lot of people, me included.  The self titled EP Sunny Sweeney already has a top ten hit in “From A Table Away”.  This song had many excellent reviews and people were talking about how refreshing it was to finally have a traditional sounding country music female on the radio again.  Now Sunny is releasing her second single off of the EP entitled “Staying’s Worse Than Leaving”.  Like the rest of the songs on this release, it’s a heartbreaking cheating song.  However, I do have to question the release a little.  It’s not that I don’t like the song, and in fact I believe that all five songs on the album are great.  I just believe she would have had a better chance keeping her momentum up by releasing “Drink Myself Single.”  “Drink Myself Single” is a little different than other songs on the EP and would have allowed her to showcase more of an assortment of her talents with an upbeat song.
As I stated before the EP doesn’t have a bad song on it.  Many people who own it have expressed their love for the track “Amy”.  If you are a Sunny Sweeney fan or a person who has been waiting for a different sound than Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, I believe you will definitely enjoy this release from a future star of country music.
