Texas singer/songwriter Sunny Sweeney will bring her tour through Colorado and will make a stop in Grand Junction on Friday, Aug. 2, at Warehouse 25Sixty-Five, 2565 American Way.
Sweeney is "an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms," according to sunnysweeney.com.
During her career, she has performed in bars and dives in Texas and recorded with major recorded companies and released four albums: "Heartbreakers Hall of Fame" (2006), "Sunny Sweeney EP" (2010), "Concrete" (2011), "Provoked" (2014) and "Trophy" (2017).
"I've grown up doing the bar scenes, and you have to have drinking and partying songs there — you have to," she says at sunnysweeney.com. "Now, my songs are still about the same things, but I feel like they're more mature versions."
Sweeney's Warehouse 25Sixty-Five show will be from 8:30–11:30 p.m. on Friday. Tickets cost $20 general admission at warehouse2565.com. Ticket prices will increase Friday, Aug. 2.
