Sunny Sweeney, With The Help Of Paul Cauthen, Paints A Beautiful Picture Of A Hard Reminder In “A Song Can’t Fix Everything,”

June 3, 2022 – Nashville, TN – “I was stepping into the elevator at my hotel as we were leaving Chicago after a great run, and this title popped into my head,” says prolific songwriter and singer Sunny Sweeney of her new tune “A Song Can’t Fix Everything.” Sweeney, an artist known for her uncanny ability to straddle the line of demarcation between Texas Country and Nashville Americana, recounts the lightbulb moment, saying, “Despite the fact that music is so special to me, and always has been, and can lift me up and bring me out of a funk, I was having a shitty day. I only wanted to stay in bed and listen to Tom Petty.” What she andLori McKenna wrote in the final version of “A Song Can’t Fix Everything” is at once uplifting and heartbreaking.“That song can’t bring my mother back to life,” Sweeney sings at the song’s start, before recounting the many ways that music may be able to transport us to the past but can never fix it. “It’s about just trying to find those three minutes of happiness you get relating to something and taking yourself out of your everyday life,” says Sweeney. “Letting yourself slip away, it can feel like it’s going to be ok, even if, ultimately, it may not be.” Sweeney is joined on vocals by the song and album’s co-producer, beloved Texas musician, and larger-than-life personality Paul Cauthen

“A Song Can’t Fix Everything” is the first single from Sweeney’s upcoming album Married Aloneout on September 23rd via Thirty Tigers. Produced by Cauthen and the Texas Gentlemen’s multi-hyphenate Beau Bedford, Married Alone is Sweeney’s finest work yet, bringing together confessional songwriting, image-rich narratives, and no shortage of sonic surprises for a loosely conceptual album about loss and healing. Recorded at Dallas’s Modern Electric Sound Recorders and was mixed by the whole team with the help of Jeff Saenz—beloved Dallas-based producer and owner of Modern Electric—upon his unbelievable return to work after being electrocuted in a freak accident.
