Sunny Sweeney Reveals Why She Got ‘Personal’ on Her New Album, ‘Concrete’

Her name might suggest sweetness and light, but country sensation Sunny Sweeney probably has a little more in common with the title of her new album, ‘Concrete’ — she’s tough, unyielding, and not someone you’d want to go up against.
