Five Things You Didn’t Know about Sugarland

Sugarland is a duo from America that specializes in country music. It consists of songwriters and singers Jennifer Nettles who is the lead vocalist and her partner Kristian Bush who does vocals, plays the acoustic guitar and mandolin. The band that has recorded immense success over the years is loved by millions across the globe. Here are some things you may just be finding out about the group.

Original Group Members were Kristen Hall and Kristen Bush

The music group that was founded in 2002 had only two members by the names of Kristen Bush and Kristen Hall. They then became a trio after making a decision to hire Jennifer Nettles. Hall decided to leave the group allegedly because of stress-related issues, and the other two members have held down the band since. Bush and Nettles write all the band’s songs other than a few written by Kevin Griffin.

Sugarland has Faced Forty Four Law Suits

2011 was not a great year for the group. At a concert during the Indiana State Fair, high winds caused an outdoor stage to collapse. Sadly, seven people lost their lives and many more were injured. The duo posted tributes to the affected families on their websites and even held a free concert in honor of the fans who lost their lives. About a month later relatives and friends of the victims filed 44 lawsuits against the band and several organizations dealing with the show.

The Duo Split up in 2012

When things became too hot for the group, they decided to call it quits in 2012. They, however, told the media that they were only taking a short break to sleep on their beds and determine what the next moves for the group would be. During this time, both musicians undertook solo projects before they finally decided to come back together in 2016 to record new hits and do tours.

Kristen Hall was “Forced” to Leave the Group

It is still not clear why Kristen Hall a founder of Sugarland left the group. Rumors are that she as forced to exit the group because of her image at the time. It could be true because three years after leaving the groups, Hall filed a lawsuit against Nettles and Bush for $14 million stating that the duo had not kept their end of the bargain of sharing profits as they had agreed before Hall’s departure. Kristen’s name appears on the trademark for Sugarland claiming that she coined the name and allowed Nettles and Bush to use it. The trio decided to settle the matter out of court.

The Band was formed at Eddie’s Attic

The award-winning duo that seems to have the secret ingredient to make exceptional country songs hits were regulars at Eddie’s Attic in Georgia. Nettle’s ex-husband owned the joint for a while. It was here that Hall and Bush decided to form a band before bringing on Jeniffer. The trio released their first album “Twice The Speed of Life” two years after venturing into music making business. It sold over three million copies and featured several hits like “something more” and “Baby girl.” Hall was the only member who garnered writing credit for all the songs on the album.
