Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles' Solo Night
Although the musical chemistry between Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush makes for one of country music's favorite and most successful duos, Jennifer is going solo for one night only for the sake of charity.
Sugarland's front girl will be at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas on January 15 to benefit Attic Community Playground, a non-profit organization supporting the performing arts.
One of her "dearest charities," Jennifer says, "Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama - each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence."
Proceeds from the benefit show will go to the Ponder High School Band and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas, and the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia - a suburb of the country star's adopted hometown of Atlanta.
Jack Ingram - ACM's 2008 Best New Male Vocalist - will kick off the night.
