Sugarland Launches Common Thread
Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles has launched an exciting new charity event called Common Thread. It will celebrate Jennifer's philosophy of balanced living through music, yoga, eco-consciousness and giving back. Common Thread will take place November 20-22 in Beaver Creek, Colorado, Aspen, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Nettles shares, "I'm hoping Common Thread will be a multi-genre diverse bill under the 'common thread' of activism and community organization. I do believe that one action can cause a ripple and make a difference. So, if you inspire some of your fans to go out into their own communities and effect change, then that's success." Artists joining Sugarland for the inaugural dates include Amos Lee and the Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers. Tickets go on sale this Saturday morning via ticketmaster.com. A limited number of VIP tickets for each performance are available and will include a silent auction champagne reception with the artists. All proceeds will be divided and donated to each artists' charity of choice. Jennifer will give her share to the American Cancer Society, while Kristian Bush will send his to the American Liver Foundation.
