Sugarland burst onto the country music scene in 2004 with the group's debut single "Baby Girl," a rags to riches story of a singer hitting the big time.
Soon, Sugarland was living the riches part of the song. They followed up with two more hits from the Twice the Speed of Life debut album. Radio and fans quickly made hits out of the songs "Something More" and "Down in Mississippi."
Composed of singer/songwriters Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, the duo answered the first album's success with its 2006 follow-up Enjoy the Ride. "Settlin'," "Everyday America," and "Stay," a song that showcased Nettles' vocal capabilties in an acoustic production. At the 2008 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, the duo was honored with Song and Single of the Year Awards for "Stay." Nettles made history as she was the only solo female artist to have written an ACM Song of the Year winner. Songwriting has become one of Sugarland's greatest strengths.
The duo's shelves are now full of countless awards including three consecutive Vocal Duo of the Year Awards (2007, 2008 and 2009) from the Country Music Association and two ACM Top Vocal Duo Awards (2005 and 2008).
Sugarland released its third album Love on the Inside in July 2008, featuring the singles "All I Wanna Do," "It Happens," and "Joey." In November of that year, Sugarland released Gold and Green, the duo's first Christmas album. The Incredible Machine, released in 2010 is their latest album, featuring hit single "Little Miss," plus "Wide Open," which was specifically written for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
