Sugarland is an American country music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Jennifer Nettles (lead vocals) and Kristian Bush (background vocals, lead vocals, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and harmonica).
Sugarland was founded in 2002 by Kristen Hall with Bush and became a trio after hiring Nettles as lead singer. However, Hall left the group in late 2005 due to stress before the release of the group’s second album, Enjoy the Ride.
Besides songs written with Kevin Griffin, Nettles and Bush write all of the band’s songs. In 2012, after recording a series of tours, the duo went on hiatus due in part to Nettles taking a maternity leave. During the hiatus, both she and Bush recorded solo material. They officially reunited in 2017 and announced that they were working on new music together for Big Machine Records.
