The rumors are true, folks. New music from country duo Sugarland is coming very soon.
Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush sparked rumors of a reunion when they handed out the award for Vocal Duo of the Year to the Brothers Osborne at the 2017 CMA Awards. They then performed together for the first time in five years at a private CMA afterparty at Nashville’s FGL House.
According to The Boot, Big Machine Label Group confirmed that Sugarland will be announcing details of new music in the coming weeks. It’s unclear if the news is related to a new single or record, but the new material will mark their first release since 2010.
The duo never officially broke up, but they did state plans to “take a break” in 2012. Nettles discovered she was pregnant that year and cancelled the remainder of her tour dates.
Nettles and Bush both worked on solo projects in the interim. However, neither managed to achieve the same level of mainstream success as they did working together as Sugarland. We’ll keep you updated on any additional news from Sugarland as it happens.
