Shes the quip that makes you laugh and the truth that makes you cry, the devil thats egging you on and the angel whispering that you arent alone. But those compelling contradictions arent whats most interesting about Sweeney: its the depth and brazen authenticity she brings to all her roles that grabs you and wont let go.Ive grown up doing the bar scenes, and you have to have drinking and partying songs there-youhaveto, Sweeney says. Now, my songs are still about the same things, but I feel like theyre more mature versions.Sweeneys salty wisdom and Texas-hewn soprano have never sounded stronger than they do onTrophy, her anticipated new album.Trophyis a breakthroughthe album we all suspected she was capable of making. The wit and honesty that have always defined her stone-cold country have blossomed into confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honk-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: its all here, raw and real.I have not felt this good about music in a really long time, Sweeney says from her front porch in Texas. Im really excited.The success of artists including Margo Price, Brandy Clark, Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, and others make it seem like the world is more open now than ever before to smart women singing smart country. Its about time. Sweeney is a veteran of the trade, and has logged her miles the old-school way. A three-year residency at the Poodle Dog Lounge in AustinIt was a dump, she says. They didnt even have a credit card machine or liquor license.along with improv and stand-up comedy experience went a long way toward teaching her how to hold a room of cynical drunks in the palm of her hand.The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, asRolling Stoneput it in September 2016: Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as AmericanaFest.
