Grammy Award-winning pair Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are refreshing their musical visions while staying true to an authentic sound and emotive songwriting that has made Sugarland ubiquitous with Country music duos.
The Georgia natives will release their first project together in nearly six years as new album BIGGER debuts June 8 through a joint venture with Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville. Setting the tone for the release, the pair have already premiered several tracks –“Still The Same,” “Bigger,” “Mother” and “Babe” featuring Taylor Swift, which has already ascended to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Songs Chart.
Since the band’s inception in 2002, Sugarland has sold nearly 10 million albums domestically, achieving high-mark sales with PLATINUM-certified THE INCREDIBLE MACHINE, 2X PLATINUM LOVE ON THE INSIDE and 3X PLATINUM TWICE THE SPEED OF LIFE as well as ENJOY THE RIDE. Their most popular songs include PLATINUM-certified “All I Want to Do”and “Stay,” 2X PLATINUM “Stuck Like Glue”as well as GOLD-certified “Baby Girl,” “It Happens,” “Settlin’,” “Something More” and “Want To.”
Sugarland has also earned seven No. 1 singles to date and amassed over 330 million on-demand streams. Their critical and mainstream appeal have been magnified with industry accolades – five consecutive CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year (2007-2011), five ACM Awards (including Song of the Year and Single of the Year) and GRAMMY® Awards for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Country Song for “Stay.” Garnering standing ovations in the U.K. with their new material during their performances at the C2C: Country to Country festival in March, Sugarland’s STILL THE SAME 2018 TOUR will kick off May 25 across 48 cities in the U.S. and Canada.
