The good news for independent Texas country artist Sunny Sweeney continues, as once again she will be the recipient of some big opportunities opening for arena audiences as part of Bob Seger’s farewell tour. The Saving Country Music Song of the Year winner for 2017 was first added to four shows on the Bob Seger “Final Tour” opening in Albuquerque, Austin, Frisco (near Dallas), and Bossier City in early March. She did so well, she was later added to Florida shows in Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale.

Now Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band have added Sunny Sweeney to five additional shows starting April 30th in Springfield, Missouri, then on to May 2nd in The Woodlands near Houston, May 4th in Tulsa, Oklahoma, May 10th in Charleston, South Carolina, and May 12th in Jacksonville, Florida. She’s also added additional shows around the new Bob Seger dates. Among other reasons to be paying attention to Sunny Sweeney, she is quickly proving herself as one of country music’s most dedicated road dogs willing to put in the time and effort to build a fan base beyond the reach of corporate radio.

“I love getting to do what I do. Excited to join Bob Seger on another run in May!” Sunny said about the new dates. Sunny has also opened numerous dates for Garth Brooks at big venues before. Once signed to Big Machine Records as one of the label’s very first artists, Sunny Sweeny didn’t fit the Nashville mold just right, eventually venturing back to Texas, and releasing the well-received Trophy in 2017. Now she’s part of the independent country scene regularly touring and collaborating with the likes of Cody Jinks, Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis, and Tennessee Jet.

Previous dates Sunny had booked at Mama Tried Deep Ellum in Dallas, and at Luckenbach have been moved to June to facilitate opening the Bob Seger dates. Find all of Sunny Sweeney tour dates below.
