Sugarland’s Kristian Bush set to release debut solo album this April

Kristian Bush Southern Gravity

I guess I should quit referring to Kristian Bush as one half of Sugarland since he and Jennifer Nettles are making quite the names for themselves all on their own. 

Anyway, Kristian has announced details of his upcoming debut solo album, "Southern Gravity." Check out the press release for all the details: 

Platinum-selling country star Kristian Bush brings his voice to the forefront with his highly anticipated debut solo album, Southern Gravity, to be released April 7 on Streamsound Records. Drawing on his proven skills as a hit-making performer, writer and producer, the record builds on the catchy, radio-friendly vibe of lead single “Trailer Hitch” and showcases Bush as a recording artist at the top of his craft.

Earlier today, Bush revealed album details in an exclusive on Rolling Stone Country

"I love this album. The songs on Southern Gravity feel like home to me, and I am proud and excited to share them, finally. They are your stories as much as they are mine, and I hope you hear yourself in here, no matter if you are standing up, falling down, or dancing in between the pieces of your life,” said Bush.

For his solo debut, the GRAMMY award-winner teamed with friend and producer Tom Tapley, as well as executive producer Byron Gallimore (Sugarland, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw), to hone Southern Gravity's groove-heavy mainstream country sound. Bush is a co-writer on each of the album’s 12 tracks, including collaborations with legendary Nashville songwriters like Bob DiPiero, Paul Overstreet, Tom Douglas and more.

The feel-good lead single “Trailer Hitch” – now Top 25 and rising at radio — was released to rave reviews from music critics, radio, and fans alike. Named USA Today’s “Song of the Week,” the track was also featured in Rolling Stone Country’s "Top 25 Songs of 2014" and iTunes "Best of 2014– Country Songs". The infectious tune has racked up millions of streams to date, and its inspiring lyrics sparked Bush to partner with Goodwill Industries International for the #GiveItAway campaign to encourage donations of used clothing and goods.
