Sarah Darling: The Nashville-based country singer readying her UK recorded album

Wednesday 3rd April 2019

Tony Cummings talked to SARAH DARLING prior to the release of her eagerly awaited 'Wonderland' album

Sarah: Maybe so. That's probably true. The one thing I've learned as a Christian is that whenever you get a chance to meet someone new. . . I've never been one to push my faith on anyone but what I definitely do and what I learned from my grandfather was that when you get a chance to be around people always be a light, always be positive, be a good person, help other people shine as bright as they can. I feel it's something I've been given just by being a believer and a Christian.

Tony: Tell me about the song "Call Me" from the 'Wonderland' album.

Sarah: We put it on Spotify. The idea of putting that one out first was it kind of gave a good description of how the album was going to sound. It's one of the most pop songs on the album. I wanted to come out of the gate saying ok, you now know that the album is going to have a different twist to it. The song has a very country lyric with some really fun pop-beats but still very country as well. So that's why I put that one out first. And it's fun. It makes you want to get in the car and drive on a sunny day, it's a kind of road trip song. 'Call Me' and another song, 'Dreams Fade Away', I didn't write. They were written by two of my favourite writers in Nashville. A girl named Sarah Buxton wrote 'Call Me' and Trent Dabbs wrote 'Dreams Fade Away'. So I wrote 11 of the 13.

Tony: Back in 2017 you were nominated for International Artist Of The Year by the British Country Music Awards. All the other artists who were nominated were far more successful, better known in country music than you, in America at least. So is it true to say that you're more popular in the UK than you are in the US?

Sarah: It is safe to say that. I would agree with that statement. It's almost like I've been adopted a little bit; I really feel that and I never expected that. It's so lovely that people view me that way.

Tony: My final tip is don't work too hard and keep praying!

Sarah: I will do that, that's very sweet, thank you so much. I don't get to hear that very often while I'm here. CR
