Breaking out with one of this summer’s most catchy and beloved anthems, Sonia Leigh is taking Country Music by storm; and it appears that this storm isn’t settling any time soon. We are thrilled that Sonia is able to take time to talk to Country Music Chat about her successes, blossoming career, and future plans.
Sonia made the move to Music City from Atlanta in 2012, but she has been involved with music her entire life. She grew up surrounded by a variety of music, influenced by everything ranging from country to rock. While living in Georgia, Sonia met a man named Zac Brown (you might have heard of him before?) and the two became friends, eventually collaborating as songwriters. That relationship catapulted Sonia to songwriting success, as she recently celebrated two #1 hit songs (“Goodbye in Her Eyes” and “Sweet Annie,” both recorded by Zac Brown Band) and received honors from BMI.
Sonia’s next goal? Step out from the writing room and show the world she is also an incredibly gifted singer and musician. Sonia was able to show the country music industry and its fans her all around talent this summer when she released “Put It in Your Pocket,” a summer tune that people just couldn’t seem to get out of their heads. Sonia’s debut single was played on SiriusXM The Highway for months, classifying it as a 2014 summer anthem.
Check out Sonia on the road – she has tour dates galore! Trust me when I say you do not want to miss seeing this artist live. She moves rooms, silences crowds, and leaves everybody in complete awe.
Put the name Sonia Leigh in your pockets, folks … she will be around for awhile!
