Sugarland

Atlanta's country band

Sugarland, the sizzling country music act from Atlanta, is a chart-topping duo: Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. In 2008, Sugarland won two Country Music Awards - duo of the year, and song of the year for Sugarland’s hit “Stay.” The act, founded in 2003 by Bush and Kristen Hall (acoustic guitar, background vocals), became a trio when Nettles was brought in as lead singer. The band’s first CD, “Twice the Speed of Life,” came out in late ‘04, and Sugarland proceeded to chart five different singles, sell more than 2 million records, tour with Kenny Chesney, collaborate with Jon Bon Jovi and perform at the Grammys. Their biggest hits are "Baby Girl" and "Something More," both of which hit No. 2 on Billboard's Hot Country chart in 2005. Later that year, Hall left the group, but has since filed a lawsuit seeking $1.5 million. Hall alleges that the remaining group failed to pay "an equal share of the profits," which Nettles and Bush deny.
