A country singer and songwriter with a honky tonk sound, a touch of rock & roll attitude, and a Cajun spirit, Dustin Sonnier was born in 1987. He was raised in Vatican, Louisiana, a small town in Lafayette Parish. In his early teens noticed that girls tended to be drawn to musicians. With this in mind, he started playing guitar and singing in a Christian country band. Sonnier went on to spend three years working with Jamie Bergeron & the Kickin’ Cajuns before he struck out as a solo act in 2006.In 2008, Sonnier released his self-titled debut EP, an independently distributed seven-song release. Sonnier became a frequent presence on the Louisiana club circuit, and established a reputation as a reliable live act. In March 2016, Sonnier brought out a second EP, Country., which included the track “Whiskey Makes Her Miss Me.” The song, a weeper in the classic style, earned major airplay in Texas, and helped boost Sonnier’s profile on music streaming services. Sonnier followed the success of the Country. EP with a new single in November 2016, “People Like Me.”
