There is nothing that is typical about the Sarah Dunn Band. The lead singer and namesake for the band admits that even her birth was a little bit different – compared to most of her generation.
“I wasn’t even born in a hospital,” the 25-year old recalls. “I was mid-wived in Monett, Missouri, which is in Barry County, in this antebellum home. I like to think I had a special start. From the age of five, we moved in my great grandparents’ old house, which actually began as a one room cabin. They built on to it, and gave it a porch, but we ... več

And, what’s going on with Dunn sets her apart even more. The band has just released their debut single, “You or The Whiskey,” which is also the title of their new album.

“I came down to see what it was all about. We had saved up some money to make the trip. I remember coming down here late at night – about a nine hour drive. When we came over the hill on the highway, seeing the Nashville skyline, I could feel the possi
At the end of the day, Sarah hopes her story and her music just might influence someone to follow their dreams, just like her favorite artists did for her. “There were some artists that in my early days when I first started that I noticed that did it the hard way. That was so inspiring. I hope that someday I could be that inspi
