Our next LCM featured artist is a little bit special, a very talented US singer-songwriter with a sublime pure vocal. From her frequent national TV appearances, to the launch of her new line of boots with partner Durango, to the success of her French macaron company, Sweet Darling Patisserie....and a robust touring schedule, Sarah Darling is a very busy young woman!
Sarah Darling went into the studio in the summer of 2008 to record her debut album, Every Monday Morning, which was released on June 16, 2009. Her single "Jack of Hearts" successfully made its debut on Country Music Television's top 20 countdown. A second album, Angels & Devils, was released on February 15, 2011, following its lead single "Something to Do With Your Hands" and a digital single release of the U2 cover "With or Without You".
In late 2012, a new single titled "Home to Me," was released to digital retailers on August 21, 2012 after being previously featured on Sirius XM's 'The Highway' country-music station. It sold over 8,000 copies in the first week of release becoming the top selling digital single from a new female artist since May 2011 when Lauren Alaina released "Like My Mother Does". "Home to Me" became Sarah's first single to chart on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, reaching a peak of number 34. "Home To Me" was issued to radio, in multiple versions, customized for different states.
Sarah recently fulfilled a childhood ambition by playing the Iowa State Fair main stage, opening up for Carrie Underwood. Her August appearances at the Grand Ole Opry marked over 80 performances on that historic stage since her debut just three years ago. Country Superstar, Brad Paisley paid tribute to her by performing a duet of "Whiskey Lullaby" with Sarah that brought the house down. Radio success with singles, 'Home to Me,' and 'Little Umbrellas' solidified the Iowa native as one of country music's breakout performers and elite vocalists.
Called 'a sophisticated songwriter with a crisp, powerful voice' by The New York Times, Darling pairs her uncanny knack for songwriting with her passion for performing on stage. She's been tagged 'Nashville's Darling' by Music City's Convention and Visitors Bureau and since her appearances on Rising Star, the term 'America's Darling' has been used to describe her.
Sarah will soon releases her successfully crowdfunded new album ' Dream Country'. A firm favourite here at LCM HQ.
