Jennifer Nettles

A talented singer-songwriter with a powerful voice, Jennifer Nettles became a superstar as one-half of the country music sensation, Sugarland. Along with Kristian Bush, the twosome released hit albums like 2004's Twice the Speed of Life, 2006's Enjoy the Ride, 2007's Love on the Inside and 2010's The Incredible Machine, and notching hits like "Baby Girl," "Something More," "Want To," "Already Gone" and "Stay." Crossing over into mainstream stardom, Nettles dueted with Bon Jovi on the No. 1 country hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home" and, as part of Sugarland, won a slew of awards, including Grammys, CMT and AMA Awards. Their runaway success and shining image were dulled slightly by the tragic stage collapse before their 2011 Indiana State Fair performance that killed seven people and inspired a flood of lawsuits against the band, but Nettles rebounded, with the singer landing a coveted judge's slot on the singing competition "Duets" (ABC, 2012). Beloved both in the country music community and on the larger music scene in general, first-rate talent Jennifer Nettles was poised to ascend even higher as both a member of Sugarland and a solo artist, beloved by fans around the world.
