Sunny Sweeney plays a set of her favorite Loretta Lynn songs on Saturday, April 25, via Facebook Live.
On Facebook recently, Sunny expressed how excited she is to perform this set of covers by Loretta Lynn.
“This is gonna be the highlight of my quarantine. Guaranteed,” Sunny wrote.
She added, “Even if these songs were put out now on the radio, they would still be ahead of their time. She is a trendsetter for a lot of women singers and songwriters simply by singing and writing about what she knows. I would like to think her influence on me shows thru my songs.”
“She gave me the best advice ever 11 years ago the first time I got to open shows for her… she said, ‘Baby, do this job until you stop feeling butterflies when you walk on stage… if the butterflies go away, that’s when you know to look for something else to do.’ I literally think of that at every single show we do. There are some nights where I’m legit nervous walking on stage in some huge arena, and I repeat her words to myself and say, ‘this means this is what I’m supposed to be doing.’ She is the queen as far as I’m concerned…back then and still now.”
Sunny most recently released Trophy, her fourth studio album, in 2017.

Last December, Parklife DC’s Mark Engleson caught Sunny in concert at City Winery DC. Mark found the show raucous and witty, calling it “a highly entertaining evening.”
