"Heartbreaker's Hall Of Fame" - Sunny Sweeney - A Review

Sunny Sweeney is a very attractive young lady who has an exciting old time country record and a real good emotive country voice with a a set list of twelve very good songs by herself and some of country's best, including Jim Lauderdale. Sweeney has a way with a song and this Texas country soundin' band cooks with some great chickin' pickin' and plenty of great pedal steel and country fiddle.
Her songs range from rockabilly to hot Texas swing. I love the sound, her vocals are real country like the guitars and pedal steel. She really reminds me of nobody, but I love her sound. This disc will definitely get you moving. a lot of upbeat country rockers. Produced by Tommy Detamore and Tom Lewis, co-produced by Sunny Sweeney. Recorded, mixed, mastered by Tommy Detamore, who does more than an adequate job on this old timey masterpiece. "Lavender Blue" with Jim Lauderdale is a very good country love song. The CD starts out rockin' with a song called "Refresh My Memory" ,this song moves real well and is the sign of things to come, with an acoustic/ electric sound. She has such great control over her vocals, and the country accent is real, growing up in Eastern Texas. She was fronting her first band in 2004, doing what she says is the hardest she ever worked in her whole life, but loving it. Her Label "The Big Machine" is a good label for an artist like herself. She really sounds like the real thing, "If I Could" is a hot cooking song that is super fast and definitely sounds live with audience sound.
"16th Avenue" - This song ends the disc, she shows how she can sing a slow ballad. What a voice, nice harmonica here. A song about people following their dreams. Some more great country guitar. What else can I say , but Sweeney is a refreshing artist, and this whole album refreshed my memory. Check this out!!! --
