We were so close, don’t you remember?


County music is inherently about grieving. If a country song is happy or celebratory, it’s not country. That’s not an opinion. In this spirit of love and loss, Sonny & the Sunsets have embraced country to the utmost with their new album Longtime Companions. As you’d expect, the title is more than bittersweet, and this is an album written about Sonny Smith’s breakup with his girlfriend of ten years. With his usual wry wit, Sonny’s take on country (unfortunately) proves that his loss is quite our gain. “Pretend You Love Me” is the dust-blown first single from that drunk with despair new album due out June 26 via PolyVinyl. Impress all your friends and soon-to-be lovers by pre-ordering it on yellow vinyl via BandCamp.
