Featured Artist Friday: August 3rd

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

August is upon us! Let's start the new month with some new music.

This week is ladies' week on Featured Artist Friday and we will be adding in some new music to the KBEC rotation from three great Texas artists.  Getting the ball rolling will be "From a Table Away" by Sunny Sweeney.  Sweeney, a Longview native, broke into the US Country Top 10 late last year with her newest album, Concrete.  At only 35 years old, we expect great things from her!  Our second artist from the week is someone we recently had the pleasure of having in studio, Tori Martin.  Martin hails from Azle, just outside of Ft. Worth, and is turning heads with her newest single "Never Trouble Trouble".  As she recently just turned 18, we know that we'll be hearing a lot more about Tori in the years to come.  We will also be featuring another Longview native this week with Miranda Lambert who is currently rocking the charts with her newest album Four the Record.  "Over You", a single from the record released last fall, knocked it out of the park at #1 on the charts.  It always feels good when a Texas artist is on top!

To recap for this week:

  • "From a Table Away" - Sunny Sweeney
  • "Never Trouble Trouble" - Tori Martin
  • "Over You" - Miranda Lambert
Every Friday, we will be adding a few new songs to the KBEC rotation.  You can hear our choices for the week on the Afternoon Drive.  If you have any comments or suggestions on who we should or shouldn't add, feel free to drop us an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
