When Sugarland made their debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry on November 12, 2004, they had only had one single on the charts; however, “Baby Girl” would be enough to launch the duo (previously trio) into their successful career as Sugarland. “Baby Girl” remained on the charts for 46 straight weeks capturing America’s attention and paving the way for the success of their following albums. Now, having had five No. 1 country singles and a handful of awards, including CMA’s, ACM’s, and Grammys, the duo have recently released their fourth full length album The Incredible Machine which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
On this week’s episode of America’s Opry Weekend, Sugarland reflects on their debut performance at the Opry:
Kristian: “The only thing I can imagine that would be more intimidating would be being at the Kentucky Derby. And it being your first race. And you’re a horse.”
Jennifer: “And being a horse. [laughter] It’s exciting. It’s exciting.”
