Called Sunny side upSunny Sweeney is now officially the weekday morning DJ at Willie’s Roadhouse, on the air from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.

With a wealth of experience in the music industry over the past few years and an obvious love for country music today, Sunny Sweeney seems like just about the right person for the job. “I don’t take country music history lightly,” she assures. “I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be able to say, ‘Willie Nelson is my boss. I can’t wait to be a part of everyone’s mornings.

Sunny Sweeney Joins Asleep At The Wheel Frontman Ray Benson, Ranger Doug of beloved western band Riders in the Sky and the Time Jumpers, country music legend Jeannie Sealy, ‘Mayor of Music Row’ Charlie Monk, recording artist Dallas Wayne and daughter of Willie Nelson , Paula Nelson, as DJ Willie’s Roadhouse. The channel (#59) is also where the Grand Ole Opry is broadcast via satellite every Tuesday and Saturday night. Sunny Sweeney has appeared on the Opry nearly 60 times during her career.

Although the show airs in the morning, as we’ve seen with other SiriusXM DJs, Sweeney will be able to pre-record her show when she’s on the road, so it won’t prevent or affect necessarily his tour. As some have pointed out, compared to SiriusXM’s Outlaw channel, Willie Roadhouse has a much smaller song playlist and rarely plays newer material. It will be interesting to see if Sweeney can inject some new blood and a fresh perspective into the channel’s playlist. That could be part of SiriusXM’s reckoning adding Sweeney to the mix.

Meanwhile, Sunny Sweeney has a new single in “A Song Can’t Fix Everything” featuring Paul Cauthen, who produced her new album. married alone. She continues to move forward in her performing career, currently with Sirius XM DJ as part of her resume.
