Conner Sweet biography When Conner Sweet took a short ride from Hendersonville, TN, on to Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville when he was 16 years old, he was at home. Now, he's ready to unleash 13 new songs, 12 he wrote and were produced by David Dorn and Dan Wilson, including “Sound Of A Backroad”, “Heartbreak Broken Record” and “Daddy’s Truck”, a real-life ballad about finding and bringing home his father’s old truck. For the last five years, Sweet's spot was The Stage On Broadway, every Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. It’s where he worked on his chops, played the 90s country he loved and tried out new songs he had written. He had aband he could trust; they were pros and he took the stage with confidence last summer at The Hard Rock stage during CMAfest. Tracy Lawrence, one of Sweet’s heroes, had just released,“Don’t Drink Whiskey”, a song Sweet had written and his dreams were coming true family is everything to Sweet, who comes from a long line of singers and musicians, so it was only natural that music would be a main passion in his life. The authenticity of Sweet’s traditional country style and his distinctive voice reflects early influences by country legends such as Jones, Cash and Strait, Garth and Alan Jackson, as well as the current influences of Church, Aldean and Thomas Rhett. Conner had a taste of success in 2020 on his very first offering when his song “Times Like These,” which he wrote about the tornado that ripped through Nashville, resonated in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. It hit home, for many, and got played on the radio, reaching #37 on the Billboard Country Indicator Chart and #22 on the Music Row Break Out Chart. It finished 2020 as one of the most played country songs by an independent artist that year. All the while, he was doing what he loved, playing for country music fans and writing the songs that would be his future. If you’ve seen Sweet on stage, it’s likely when you visited The Stage On Broadway in downtown Nashville and you were probably having a great time. So, as you could say, the stage is set . . . And Conner Sweet is comin’ to town!
