“i was made to go against the current, but lord don’t let me sink…”
- Sunny Leigh Shipley
For Sunny, West Texas doesn’t just run through her veins…it flows through her songs.
From the impact of striking oil (a.k.a. “Black Rain”) in a small town to the red muddy water in “Don’t Let Me Sink,” Sunny Leigh Shipley’s debut album, “Out of the Sky,” is a beautiful collection of songs and stories inspired by her childhood memories and the culture of West Texas.
As you can quickly tell after listening to one song, this rancher’s daughter is no stranger to songwriting. Sunny has written and co-written numerous songs, including “Oh, Tonight” for the Josh Abbott Band, which hit #1 on the Texas Country Charts and made it to the Top 50 of Billboard’s Country Chart.
Sunny continues to write music in both Austin, TX and Nashville, TN.
