5 February 2013 - Sunny Sweeney - Staying's Worse Than Leaving

Well, since Scott is away on vacation, I get to fill in for his posts over here.   So, I figured I'd better find some contemporary country music.

Luckily, there's some of this music that is also pleasurable to me.  Each of us has posted a Sunny Sweeney song before (him at Christmas, and me as part of a Kasey Chambers double bill), so it seemed appropriate that, as Scott has left for a sunny - pun completely intended - vacation destination, and I'm staying here in this bitter cold, that I post this tune.

I'll put this plainly - Sunny Sweeney is the most genuine country artist today, in dealing with her fans, and that genuinity - is that a word? - is clearly reflected in her music.  And... she's nominated for at least one ACM award this year - New Female Vocalist (although we are a bit puzzled by this "new" things - so here's hoping bigger things are coming.
