Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles Insists She’s Not Going Solo

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles continues to ignore suggestions that she should abandon her musical partnership with Kristian Bush to pursue a solo career, she said during an interview with Minneapolis Star Tribune music writer Jon Bream. In a story published Thursday (April 16), Nettles said, “We’ve heard that question before, and it’s obviously hurtful to Kristian. From a musical perspective and from an emotional perspective, it’s a wonderful partnership for me. It’s kind of like the Eurythmics. Annie Lennox went off and had a solo career. But I have no plans for that as of right now.” Nettles also said Bush is her favorite person to write with. “We never know what the future will hold,” she said. “If there’s something that he itches to do or I itch to do, we’ll be supportive of each other.” Sugarland will perform in Minneapolis on Friday (April 17).
