Houston native Sunny Sweeney has come a long way since she played her songs in bars for tips and free beer in the early 2000's. Lately, she keeps plenty busy touring with the likes of Miranda Lambert, when she's not enjoying her home life in Austin. Notably Texan caught up with Sunny on the heels of a big spring tour schedule.

The 38 year old Texan is in high demand both in Nashville, where she recently performed at the Grand Ole Opry, and in Austin, where she loves to spend time with her husband.

Our interview topics ranged from Sunny's eccentric social media posts about her favorite foods, to her life on the road, the new video  she just shot for her single with Will Hoge called "My Bed", and lots more.
