NASHVILLE, TN — Country music star Sarah Darling has been making heartaches disappear all summer long with her latest feel-good break-up anthem, “Little Umbrellas,” and now she’ll debut the song on national TV on FOX & Friends this Saturday, August 24 (6 a.m. to 10 a.m. EDT). She’ll share what it was like to tour with Alan Jackson, release her first EDM remix, and more, all in support of her two headlining shows in the New York area this weekend.
Making her mark on the country genre with her Top 35 Country Billboard sales single, “Home To Me,” in early 2013, Darling released “Little Umbrellas” at the ‘unofficial’ start of summer over Memorial Day weekend. The song spawned immediate praise from music critics including Robert K. Oermann (Music Row) who called it “perky, bopping and extremely catchy,” and catapulted to the Top 12 on Sirius XM’s “The Highway Hot 30 Live.” It continues to earn radio spins weekly.
“‘Little Umbrellas’ is my first independent single release, so it was a pretty big risk for my team and I to put it out there. I’m truly taken back and humbled by the incredible momentum it’s generated, ” she said. “Thanks to all of my fans and industry supporters who have helped make it my ‘Soundtrack to Summer 2013!’ It’s the greatest gratification when I look out in the crowd I see people up out of their seats dancing and singing along to it…that’s why I do what I do!”
