Sarah Darling has already solidified her place as one of country music’s breakout performers and elite vocalists in the US. Now, following a sold out tour in England and Ireland and an invitation from the chart-topping Ward Thomas to open shows this October, the Nashville based singer-songwriter has set her sights on the UK. After 2 major label US releases, ‘Dream Country’ is Sarah’s first full-length transatlantic and independent release.
The long list of Sarah’s achievements so far is impressive. The Iowa native has supported stadium fillers such as Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Vince Gill and Tim McGraw, accumulated over a million downloads, performed at the Grand Ole Opry over 80 times and has radio success under her belt.
‘Dream Country’ takes the listener on a journey through aspirational, cinematic songs about stars, romance and dreams in Sarah’s escapist style which crosses country, Americana, jazz and contemporary pop. Following the end of a long term record deal, this album was a chance for the singer-songwriter to write a record that depicts where she is artistically, professionally and personally.
Her newest single, ‘Halley’s Comet’ is about self-belief, “The world can bring you down but I’ve realised things have a way of working out at just the right time”, explains Sarah, “Just like Halley’s Comet, she comes back around shining bright even when she goes away for a while. We are all forces to be reckoned with, you just have to believe you will have your time”.
