Sunny Sweeney is back on the radio with her latest single, ‘Staying’s Worse Than Leaving,’ the follow-up release to her Top 10 smash, ‘From a Table Away.’ In new tune from the Texan, she has come to grips that her relationship has reached its limits.

“God knows we’ve tried / Everything that we could do / You can keep your pride / Blame me if you need to / Even though this freedom feels a lot like treason / I know that staying’s worse than leaving,” Sweeney sings in the song’s second verse.

The chorus offers hope for the song’s character as she tells herself that this is the best choice for her, no matter who agrees or disagrees with her difficult decision:

“It’s gotta get better / It can’t get worse / Hope is a blessing / Not a curse / I don’t care who passes judgment on my reasons / I know that staying’s worse than leaving,” she sings.

‘Staying’s Worse Than Leaving’ is being shipped to country radio today, April 11, and the song is currently available for digital download on iTunes.
