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!
