Sugarland is an American country music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Jennifer Nettles on lead vocals and Kristian Bush on vocals, guitar, and mandolin.
Sugarland was founded in 2002 by Kristen Hall (vocals, guitar) with Bush and became a trio after hiring Jennifer Nettles.
Signed to Mercury Nashville Records in 2004, Sugarland broke through that year with the release of their debut single "Baby Girl", the first single from their multi-platinum debut album Twice the Speed of Life. Hall left the group in late 2005 due to stress before the release of the group's second album, Enjoy the Ride. This album produced their first two No. 1 singles in the U.S., "Want To" and "Settlin'", and won the duo a Grammy for "Stay". In 2008, they released their third album, titled Love on the Inside. This album produced three more No. 1 singles with "All I Want to Do", "Already Gone", and "It Happens". Their fourth album, The Incredible Machine, was released 19 October 2010, in both a standard and deluxe edition. Upon The Incredible Machine being certified platinum, Sugarland has sold in excess of fourteen million records. In 2012, after recording a series of tours, the duo went on hiatus due in part to Nettles taking a maternity leave; during the hiatus, both she and Bush recorded solo projects. They officially reunited in 2017 and released a reunion album, Bigger, in 2018 via Big Machine Records.
