Becky Warren nails the immediacy of Saturday night revelry with "Dive Bar Sweetheart".

Shaking hips and breaking hearts, Nashville singer/songwriter Becky Warren nails the immediacy of Saturday night revelry with "Dive Bar Sweetheart", its toss 'em back roadhouse groove introducing June, the female lead of her forthcoming solo debut, War Surplus. A story cycle revolving around the before and after effects of love during the Iraq war, "Dive Bar Sweetheart" marks June's red carpet debut to Scott, the soon-to-be deployed soldier who will never be the same.

Warren, former vocalist and songwriter for the Great Unknowns, has spent the last four years penning the 12 songs of War Surplus. In the interim, she's garnered songwriting awards including the 2014 Merlefest Songwriting Competition and 2015 Kerrville New Folk competition for “Call Me Sometime,” the opening track of War Surplus.

War Surplus will be released on October 14. Pre-order the album via Bandcamp.
