Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush make up country duo Sugarland who’ve sold over 8 million records since exploding onto the music scene in ’04 with Twice The Speed Of Life. Enjoy the Ride quickly followed in ’06 and their third studio album Love On The Inside in July ’08, which skyrocketed them to superstardom, drawing fans from all genres and critics abroad. Sugarland is credited with co-writing all tracks from all three albums and co-producing the last two. As a thank you to their loyal fans, in Aug. ’09 the duo released Live On The Inside, a CD/DVD set of live tracks, covers and footage from their tour. They’ve performed in six European countries and headlined a U.S. tour throughout ’09.
They’ve received trophies from the Grammys, American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music, CMT Music Awards and the Country Music Association. Nettles was recently chosen to perform for the Obama Presidential celebration, as well as the duo for Oprah. In August, ABC aired an hour-long network special featuring the duo in their most beloved setting…on stage. Their latest album Gold And Green, a 10-track holiday collection consisting of half standards and half originals, all of which Nettles and Bush co-wrote and co-produced was a Christmas sensation. Most recently, the duo received a nomination for “Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals” for #1 smash hit “It Happens” at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
Sugarland has debuted a new single “Wide Open” for the Team USA Soundtrack to commemorate the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Little Big Town believes fiercely in the music on its current album A Place to Land – so when a change of record labe left in in limbo shortly after its November 2001 release, they didn’t give up on it. Now that Westbrook and band mates Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet have found a new home at Capitol Records Nashville, Little Big Town’s faith in A Place to Land has been rewarded with a new life. We want the world to hear this music,” Georgia native Schlapman says. “It’s our heart and soul. It’s who we are and we put so much of ourselves into it. It’s how we tell the story of our lives.”
