Country music kicked off the Christmas season last night on ABC. The 2nd annual “CMA Country Christmas” featured host Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland opening up the special with her rendition of the holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Watch her version of the hit and tell us what you think:

VIDEO: Sugarland & Lady Gaga Perform “You And I”


One of the more anticipated moments of last night’s Grammy nominations special was the announced duet of Lady GaGa with country music duo Sugarland. They performed Lady Gaga’s hit single “You And I” with Lady GaGa on the piano and even Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles picking up a guitar. Watch the video of their performance right here and let us know what you think about this mix:


This wasn’t the first time Sugarland performed with a pop superstar. They performed “California King Bed” with Rihanna at the Academy of Country Music’s Fanjam earlier in the year.

Sugarland’s Kristian Bush performs annual solo show

Both members of super-group Sugarland kept plenty busy over the weekend. Lead singer Jennifer Nettles made waves in the country music community this morning with the announcement that she tied the knot with longtime BF (and former model!) Justin Miller.

Meanwhile, the other half of the duo, Kristian Bush, focused on more music related endeavors, playing his annual solo show at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA. Bush was joined onstage by longtime friend and collaborator Ellis Paul and Bush’s real-life brother and musician in the SugarBand, Brandon.

The show was a bit different than an average SugarShow. The stage was smaller, the setlist was a bit more varied and, as Bush learned the hard way, a guitar tech was NOT in the house when one of his strings broke during the first song.

Sugarland’s official site hinted at the possiblility of show audio next week, but until then check out the full set lists (including some incredible sounding mash-ups!) after the jump:

Congratulations goes out to Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles on her marriage this weekend in Tennesee. People magazine is reporting that Jennifer officially tied the knot to Justin Miller in a quiet sunset ceremony. She wore an Alexander McQueen gown on her big day that was a private affair with her family and closest friends, including band-mate Kristian Bush, at the celebration.

Justin, a former model, appeared in Sugarland’s 2006 “Want To” music video. The pair had been dating for over two years.

Sugarland is performing Wednesday at the Grammy Nominations Concert on CBS.
