    Since no one else has mentioned Sunny Sweeney’s new single Bad Girls Phase, I will. I was hoping that her parting ways with Big Machine would take her music back closer to her Heartbreakers Hall of Fame sound, but not so much. The fact that it debuted on the Sirius/XM Highway channel, instead of Outlaw Country, should have been a clue that she was maintaining the New Country sound. Not that it is a bad song, it’s just not my preferred style – especially knowing what she is capable of.
