True to her Texas honky-tonk roots, Sunny Sweeney has never been a singer of what you'd call "soft" country songs — the kind you might turn to for easy comfort and or quiet Sunday afternoons with the family. Hell, you can tell just by the titles of her first two albums — Heartbreaker's Hall of Fame and Concrete — that she reaches straight for the hard stuff. So when this woman sees fit to name her third album Provoked, you better believe she's not about to start playing coy now. No, this is where the real hurtin' starts, and Sweeney's showing no mercy … least of all to herself.
Chuck Allen Floyd has lived many lives. Songwriter. guitarist. cowboy. college graduate. lawyer. frontman- each phase no less significant or influential than the last. His songs reflect the full gamut of each experience. creating an honest look at the life of a man who could've just as easily spent his days in a courtroom instead of on a stage. Chuck's path to the Texas Country music scene took him through Nashville. Amarillo. and Nashville (again). finally returning him home to Oklahoma where he and his band. The Liars Club. stand poised to take their place among the Country Music elite. Chuck's career as a songwriter in Clint Black's Blacktop Music Group allowed him to hone his skill of crafting songs that connect with a larger audience. His song 'Borrowed Wings' won first place in the 2009 Billboard World Song Contest. and he was recently honored as Billboard's 2010 winner for his song 'Wishing He Was You'- a back-to-back feat that has never been accomplished. He was also named 2009 Co-writer Of The Year by the New Hampshire Country Music Association for his collaboration with Tony Matrumalo on 'You Got Lucky.' Floyd and Matrumalo went on to win the North American Country Music Association's Co-Writers Of The Year Award for the same song. Chuck's songs continue to be recorded by country music artists around the world. Success as a professional songwriter is a mountaintop that few writers ever see.
