Sugarland Talks Reuniting at the CMA Awards, Releasing New Single, Working on Upcoming Album & More

Jim Casey talks with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland about:

  • working on individual projects during their five-year hiatus from Sugarland
  • their surprise reunion at the CMA Awards in November
  • the changing sonic nature of country music over the last five years
  • writing and recording their new single, “Still the Same”
  • working on their upcoming album
  • letting the songs drive the album
  • performing together on Dec. 31 on Dick Clark’s New Years Rocking Eve With Ryan Seacrest
  • playing Europe’s C2C Festival in March
  • putting together a tour in 2018

Quote Worthy:

  • “Normally, it takes 100 songs to write three good ones, but it’s different if you’re working with Jennifer. It takes one song to write one good one. That’s cool. You can’t ever underestimate the power of that.” — Kristian Bush
