Sugarland rocked the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this past weekend in a ceremony held to honor this year’s laureates: Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee of Liberia, and Tawakkul Karman of Yemen, for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.
The duo performed “Tonight” and “Stuck Like Glue” with a full orchestra!
Check out the performance below, then let us know what you think in the comments.
Sugarland are currently over in Norway, getting ready to perform during the Nobel Peace Prize concert and, lucky for SugarFans, they’ve chosen to commemorate the event by posting a video they made the last time they were overseas in a cold climate. The SugarDuo was in London earlier this year and, apparently, decided to record an acoustic version of the viral fan favorite “Every Girl Like Me,” – in the back of a taxi. Awesome.
Check out the video below:
Sugarland is giving their fans a chance to win a pretty neat prize. Jennifer Nettles signed one of the CMA Country Christmas banners that were outside Bridgestone Arena during CMA Award week, and they’ll be giving it to one lucky winner. Now, wouldn’t that be a great gift for the holidays?
To enter, fans can submit their names, e-mail addresses and zip codes at sugarlandmusic.com/cmaxmas. One lucky winner will be selected on December 9th. Good luck!
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.
Dierks Bentley, Kris Kristofferson, and Sugarland are three of the superstar acts on Amnesty International’s tribute to Bob Dylan. The album, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the organization, will be available on January 24th. Also featured on “Chimes Of Freedom: The Songs Of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International” are Adele, Maroon 5 and Miley Cyrus.
Dierks contributes his version of “Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power),” and Sugarland adds in their cover of “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You.”
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.
Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland have announced plans to take a small break from the spotlight after a long year for the duo. They will take a few months away from their careers as they prepare to record a follow up album to the “Incredible Machine.”
“We’re in the writing – actually, we’re in the resting process. Let’s be really frank. We just got off tour two weeks ago after two years of being on the Incredible Machine Tour, and obviously after quite a tumultuous year, to say the least, we are taking a few months just to chill and relax and sleep in our own beds and contemplate how we want to approach what’s next,” says Jennifer.
Sugarland just won the Country Music Association (CMA) award for Duo Of The Year at last week’s award show. What do you want to see from them on their new album?
Incase you missed it, Sugarland tweeted this video message to their fans earlier today as a thank you for their win at the CMA’s last night for Vocal Duo of the Year.
We’re still celebrating last night’s CMA win, and here’s a message from us to all you Sugarfans: THANK YOU.
