In 2003, Kristen Hall and Kristian Bush founded Sugarland in Atlanta, Georgia. Hall, a songwriter, and Bush, a guitar player from the folk rock group Billy Pilgrim, recruited Jennifer Nettles as lead singer. Tired of performing in local clubs, they dreamed of reaching the top like country idols Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and Wynonna Judd. After signing with Mercury Nashville Records, the trio released Twice the Speed of Life in 2004. Fans loved the songs "Baby Girl" and "Something More," and the debut album went multi-platinum. Nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammys, the band was on its way.
After three years as a team, Sugarland lost a member in 2006 when Kristen left the group to work on her own writing projects and spend more time at home. Fans worried that the band would break up, but Bush and Nettles kept working on their second album. They completed Enjoy the Ride in November, and Brad Paisley played the electric guitar on the track "Mean Girls." Featuring the number one hits "Want To" and "Settlin'," the breakthrough album earned mainstream fame, and they toured with Kenny Chesney. On CMT Crossroads, Jennifer sang a duet with Bon Jovi, and they won a Grammy for "Who Says You Can't Go Home."
It was time for the group to take the next step, so they headlined the CMT Change for Change Tour with Little Big Town and Jake Owen. At the 2007 American Music Awards, they performed "Irreplaceable" with Beyonce, and everything was falling into place. But in 2008, the past came back to haunt them with a lawsuit from Kristen Hall. Their former songwriter sued the band for $1.5 million, her share of the profits plus interest. In between legal battles, the artists released their third album, Love on the Inside. While dealing with the lawyers, the band planned new Sugarland concerts with Ashton Shepherd and Kellie Pickler.
Recently, the pair won "Top Vocal Duo" at the Academy of Country Music awards and sang "Love Shack" with the B-52s.
