Sunny Sweeney's debut, Heartbreaker's Hall of Fame, had an old-school approach that was virtually ignored by country radio. Concrete rectifies that, without tempering Sweeney's irrepressible charm -- or her Texas-sized twang. The upbeat "Helluva Heart" and "Mean as You" are natural radio singles, both featuring strong hooks, twangin' instruments and engaging storylines. The centerpiece of Concrete is "Amy," a song written from the perspective of the other woman. Aside from the pristine and modern-sounding production, the song could be mistaken for a classic from a bygone era.
