I grew up on the outskirts of Houston....and just down the road a piece was the town of Sugarland, Tx. famous mostly for the Imperial Sugar processing plant there.
Hollywood and Goldie Hawn put it on the map with her early starring role in the film "Sugarland." What a great movie that was.
I'm wondering today, with fingers crossed and hopes high for Kristian and Jennifer, if the name Sugarland was chosen because of the town and/or movie....anyone know?
Good luck to them both on Wednesday night. We'll be watching!!!

I'm so excited for them!! I met them a couple of years ago when they came thru here and was so impressed with not only the quality of their performance but also by how kind and humble they were. Jennifer was so friendly and outgoing and Kristian was just a doll! I'd love to post a pic but methinks I forgot how!

That's great news - well done Sugarland!
Posted: Thu Nov 08, 2007 7:10 am
That was really great..though I nearly missed it. Left the room at the start of the announcement of the nominees (not realizing it was Sugarland's category) I left for a minute.....only to return to the two of them onstage thanking fans and others. What really impressed me was their onstage performance minutes later...Wow!!!
Jennifer sang the hec out of that song, omg!!!

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush performed their song "Stay" on last year's CMA awards show solo acoustic and knocked it clean out of the park. The song ended to thunderous applause and a standing ovation. I sat here at home watching in stunned silence, and then let out a big 'ol YES!!!
I've seen the video on the CMT stations and the video of "Stay" is equally moving......and gets my vote. Won't you join me?
Posted: Tue Apr 15, 2008 11:58 am
As usual, I did not remember to watch last night, but I'm happy to report that Sugarland WON!
Posted: Tue Apr 15, 2008 12:09 pm
YEEHAH!!! Congrats out to KB and JN.
Thanks for the link. If you go there folks...click on Sugarland videos.
There's 2 versions of the song they won for.
The music tv version and a live performance from the 2007 CMT AWARDS.
Here's Sugarland performing STAY at last year's CMA Awards:

Sugarland was on tv this morning -- ABC's Good Morning America. I only heard on the radio simulcast of the show in the car and sadly missed the performance. Anyone happen to see it? ps......It's Great to be back!!!
Posted: Sat Sep 13, 2008 10:57 am

Don't forget to tune in tonight
Posted: Wed Nov 12, 2008 3:47 pm
Thanks for the reminder, how timely. I just rec'd in the mail today from BMG, Sugarland's CD, Love on the Inside... I believe it was the BMG special this month. I paid less than $7:00 for it (shipping included)!!
I recognized the name Byron Gallimore as one of the producers on the CD.. He produced Lori Mckenna's Unglamorous!!!
Posted: Wed Nov 12, 2008 8:28 pm
Thanks for the reminders today, everyone. My wife said she's looking forward to seeing Keith Urban in duo performance with Brad Paisley.
As for me, Sugarland's performance will be highly anticipated......
My wife went on to say there's a special surprise guest slated. Gee, I wonder who it's gonna be?
Posted: Wed Nov 12, 2008 9:45 pm
Yee haw! Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland won for song of the year.
Surprise guest? I don't have a clue.
Can't wait to see The Eagles perform!
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 12:32 am
Wahoooooooo!!!! I'm so happy for them! And wasn't their performance wonderful?!
I saw them a couple of months ago and have an exciting tidbit to share about that but I can hardly keep my eyes open so I promise to come back soon to fill y'all in!
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 6:48 am
Vocal Duo of the Year too! Yes, Mtn Gal, their performance was wonderful....although I must admit some of last night's performances were hard for me to listen to.....I'm not THAT big a country fan, if you know what I mean.....small doses and all that.
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 9:44 am
I don't want to go all negative here....but as we watched last night's show we were in disbelief.
That said, highlights were Sugarland's win and performance.
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 9:53 am
Ditto for me Paddy.
I must admit I did love seeing/hearing the Eagles and was disappointed they didn't win. Brad Paisley's Eagles introduction was nice too.
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 10:09 am
Did anyone else sense sound quality issues with the broadcast? Could be I need a new tv....
Loved the Eagles...told my wife they were suited up nicely a la
Which reminds me, I think his old college roommate Robert Keen is in town tonight.
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 10:28 am
BTW Paddy.....did you make it to the end for the big surprise guest presenter? It was Shania Twain.....who presented Entertainer of the Year (won by Kenny Chesney).
Posted: Thu Nov 13, 2008 10:52 am
We did make it to the end.....just barely.
Leading up to the surprise guest I put my money on it being Garth Brooks as I think he considering a return to the country music business.......
Shania Twain was a nice surprise (where's she been?) and was moved by the welcome!
Kenny Chesney received the last award of the night from her, and with nerves and emotion showing:
Hit on her!!!
Nah.......he just looked over at her and said.....wow....you look great!!!

It's been a while since I've been here...got all tied up with holiday orders and was buried right up til Christmas...but I did want to come back to check in on y'all and share that little tidbit I'd mentioned on the night of the CMAs.
I saw Sugarland in September and had the great privelege of meeting them again. I took great notes, set list, stage photos, the whole nine yards and waited patiently for their people to post the backstage photos so I could post mine here. Well my patience did not pay off. My eyes were closed and it was a terrible pic which took the wind right out of my sail (by then I was already super busy at work). Anyhoo, in the brief time I had to chat with Jennifer and Kristian, I had a delightful conversation with them which revolved around my EP lapel pin (oh yes I did!!). And in that conversation, I told them that in my very humble opinion, I think it's time for them to record another EP tune. Kristian laughed and asked which one and I suggested Jukebox on My Grave or Rollaway Bed. I think that they could do great justice to either (or any really) of those songs and was so thrilled that I had the chance to tell them that.
So if they do ever do record either of those in the future...you heard it here first folks!!
Happy New Year!
Posted: Tue Dec 30, 2008 4:17 pm
Holy Moly Bat Girl! Awesome!!! I agree witht hose two song suggestions!
And I *love* that you were wearing your EP lapel pin! (Which I forgot to pack/bring to Boston.)
Posted: Fri Jan 02, 2009 11:26 pm
My wife gave me a handful of music for Christmas and one of the five new CDs in my stocking was the latest release from Sugarland.......
She loves me yeah yeah yeah.............and with a love like that, you know I should be glad.
Indeed! I love the latest offering by Jennier Nettles and Kristian Bush....aka Country Music's Sugarland.
Posted: Wed Mar 04, 2009 4:45 pm
Sugarland are the cover feature on this month's Maverick magazineMaverick magazine
and will also be doing an 'in session' with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2
tomorrow which airs 7pm - 8pm our time.
All this coincides with a forthcoming UK tour and is great publicity for them.
Posted: Mon Apr 06, 2009 1:23 pm
Sugarland continues to bring home the awards. Last night they took home the ACM award for Vocal Duo of the year - ending Brooks & Dunn's nine-year run. (I forgot that the awards show was on.) Sugarland and Zac Brown Band take home ACM awards
Posted: Tue Apr 14, 2009 5:54 pm
Wow. Now I know Sugarland has REALLY hit it big. They were on Oprah today as part of a special "Stars of Country Music" show along with Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, and others. (I happened to catch just the last 10 minutes when Oprah was interviewing Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles!) Kristian's big revelation: he's related to the Bush's baked beans family.....but hates baked beans!
Posted: Tue Apr 14, 2009 9:33 pm
I thought this was the show that Darius Ruckus was to be on too...
Can't you hear him now "Oh Kristian, Ellis Paul wrote THAT song about you.. oh I know him, great guy, he opened for me once." lol....
Posted: Wed Apr 15, 2009 4:04 am
I thought I caught a glimpse of Darius Rucker when I first turned it on....just before a commercial break... and I heard Oprah say Sugarland was coming on next. As I said, I didn't turn it on until near the end of the program, so I wasn't sure who all was on....and didn't feel compelled to mention Darius Rucker.

The country duo Sugarland (Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush) announced thier release of a new Christmas album titled "Green and Gold." It will be out in stores October 13th!
Some of the songs are traditional holiday songs and others are written by Nettles and Bush. I know they're including all of the holiday songs they released on the special Enjoy the Ride holiday addition they released awhile back. But there will be more.
I know one of the songs "Little Wood Guitar" is written by Kristian Bush and Ellis Paul.
I heard a demo of Maybe Baby (New Year's Day) by Kristian Bush a year ago and can't wait to hear the studio version!
1. City Of Silver Dreams*
2. Winter Wonderland
3. Holly Jolly Christmas
4. Coming Home*
5. Gold And Green*
6. Maybe Baby (New Year’s Day)*
7. Nuttin' For Christmas
8. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
9. Little Wood Guitar*
10. Silent Night
2, 3, 7, 8, and 9 were released as an "Enjoy the Ride" holiday special two years ago.

Of course they did!! I think they are the reason Brooks & Dunn are calling it quits. B&D have clearly been ousted from that perch by Sugarland!
Posted: Fri Dec 18, 2009 3:13 am
On last night's Bob Harris show on BBC Radio 2 he played a selection of seasonal songs; he's been playing Sugarland for a while and they did a 'live' session for the show some months back BUT last night he played LITTLE WOOD GUITAR.
Getting played on the show has been and continues to be so important for many artists so it was great to hear Ellis' song on the radio over here.
