You heard the news, right? Teased during the CMA Awards....Sugarland is back!!
Sugarland has officially returned, with the new single, “Still The Same,” which will release digitally on Dec. 21. The track will be released via joint venture between UMG Nashville and Big Machine Records. The Big Machine Records’ radio promo team will promote the track to country radio in 2018.
The duo, known for hits such as “Stuck Like Glue,” and “Stay,” is working on tour dates for 2018 and is in the studio working on a new project. They are also slated to perform on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest to ring in 2018 from New York City’s Times Square.
“We are thrilled for fans to hear our new music, especially this new single,” said Jennifer Nettles. “The title of the song is so meaningful to us as we want fans to know we are still the same Sugarland they’ve known and loved.”
Kristian Bush added, “We want to finish where we left off. We always knew were going to make music again, so this has been the best of both worlds. We were able to take time to feed our personal passions, and we’re excited to come back together to create music as a band again.”
The duo has sold nearly 10 million albums domestically, and earned platinum-certified singles including “All I Want to Do,” “Stay” and the 2x Platinum “Stuck Like Glue.” During their career, the duo has also earned several accolades including CMA Vocal Duo of the Year (2007-2011), five ACM Awards (including Song of the Year and Single of the Year) and Grammy honors for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, and Best Country Song, for “Stay.”
The duo’s reunion comes after both Nettles and Bush released solo projects in recent years. Nettles released the solo album, That Girl, in 2014 via Mercury Nashville. Her second solo album, Playing With Fire, released via Big Machine in 2016. Meanwhile, Bush signed with Streamsound Records as a solo artist in 2014, and released the solo album Southern Gravity, in 2015. He also produced Lindsay Ell’s The Project, released in August on Stoney Creek Records.
