Log on to www.sugarlandmusic.com Wednesday, July 2 at 1pm CST for a SURPRISE video announcement from the duo. You don't want to miss this!
Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush make up country duo Sugarland who exploded onto the music scene in "04 with multi-platinum selling album Twice The Speed Of Life, which gave birth to mega hits "Baby Girl" and "Something More". Their second album Enjoy the Ride has sold over two million copies and spawned #1 hits with "Want To," "Settlin'" and "Stay". Their third studio album, Love On The Inside will be released July 22nd. Sugarland is credited with co-writing all tracks from all three albums and co-producing the last two with Byron Gallimore. Their debut single from Love On The Inside, "All I Want To Do" is the highest country chart debut of their career. They have received trophies from the American Music Awards for "Breakthrough Favorite New Artist," the Academy of Country Music for "New Duo/Group of the Year," Single Record of the Year" ("Stay"), and "Song of the Year" ("Stay"), Country Music Television for "Collaborative Video of the Year" and "Duo Video of the Year," and the Country Music Association for "Vocal Duo of the Year" and "Duo Video of the Year" ("Stay"). Nettles scored a Grammy in "07 for her collaboration with Bon Jovi for their #1 hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home".
Since the release of her gold certified, debut album Small Town Girl in 2006, American Idol finalist Kellie Pickler has been anything but idle. The disc yielded three Top 20 hits, two of them, "Red High Heels" and "I Wonder," she co-wrote. And earlier this year she won three CMT Awards (the most awarded of the night).
Just one year ago Ashton Shepherd was picking peas in the morning and guitars at night in a small town in southern Alabama. Now, the 21-year-old singer/songwriter, wife and mother is a recording artist for MCA Records and is living her dream of being a country music singer. She will be performing self-penned hit singles "Taking Off This Pain" and "Sounds So Good" from her critically acclaimed debut album, Sounds So Good.
