Sunny Sweeney (@GettinSweenered) Is “Provoked” on New Album

Sunny Sweeney’s third studio album, Provoked, will be released on August 5, and she promises a mix of toughness and vulnerability that has endeared her to a loyal legion of fans. To release the album, the fiery Texan teamed up with Thirty Tigers, while her current single, the Brandy Clark co-penned “Bad Girl Phase” is in high rotation on SiriusXM’s “The Highway.”

Provoked was produced by Luke Wooten (Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler) and will tackle an array of subjects, ranging from the good to the bad to the ugly. “The album is a journey from nearly hitting bottom and losing everything personally to regaining my footing and being able to find not only my true self again, but real happiness,” Sweeney reveals.

While Sweeney is known for her honesty and emotional grit, this album will take things up a notch. Songs range from honest and resilient to raucous to reckless to reflection. The album will reflect many of the stories she has to tell. “My fans recognize that this is something different, and they recognize that I’m writing about the truth,” says Sweeney. “They’ve been through a lot with me, and they’ve seen me in both good places and bad, and the feedback I’m getting from them now is that they feel like this is the real me again.”

Sweeney self-funded the album with the help of her fans on PledgeMusic and a portion of the album sales will go to one of the singer’s favorite charities, CASA (Court Approved Special Advocates). “I have been unbelievable blessed in my life, and I know that I owe a lot of that to my upbringing to the Northeast Texas community – a place I’m proud to call home. I hope that others will be inspired, or rather invoked, to also pay it forward.”
