"Not many debut discs sound this confident, poised, and excited." - Steve Pick, No Depression, 11/2006

"In East Texas honky-tonk queen, she has that brash confident approach that once personified Patsy Cline." - Fred Dellar, Mojo,11/6/2006

"Rarely do beauty, brains and brawn co-exist so organically as they do in Sunny Sweeney. Her brand of tough love might be the long-sought antidote for the vapid excesses that continue to infest mainstream country." - Darryl Smyers, Dallas Observer, 1/24/2007

"This honky-tonker confidently strides down a path that has been traversed by Rosie Flores, Kelly Willis and Miranda Lambert." - Bobby Reed, Chicago Sun Times, 3/4/07

"The girl can wail, and hopefully someone's paying attention . . . 4 stars."  - James Kelly, Creative Loafing (Atlanta), 1/9/2007

"Sweeney doesn't seem to care a flip about what's going on anyplace but right there in the Lone Star State, keeping things twangy, tangy, and tonkin' . . . . It's been a long time since any young female - think Joy Lynn White, maybe - got this deep-dish country."  - Alanna Nash, Amazon.com, 2/7/2007

 " . . . made from equal parts hick cool and industrial-strength Lone Star honky-tonk sawdust and stardust. Hall of Fame, her debut, is an invigorating batch of hard country tunes sung with a gutsy rural twang." - Rachel Swan, East Bay Express, 11/27/2006

"This debut is downright irresistible, with Sweeney's hankering for hooks not disturbing the hayseed charm. . . . Heartbreaker's Hall of Fame is a sweet, drawling mix of wistful, melodic sway and dancefloor precision." - Michael Corcoran, Austin American Statesman, 10/3/2006
