Sugarland “Still the Same Tour” Preview

They are back, folks. And this is no “let’s see if we can make magic happen again” situation. This is truly a magical reunion that droves of country music fans will be able to experience starting today.

Yesterday, we were so fortunate to be among a handful of media members who were invited to Sugarland’s final tour rehearsal before they set off on a forty-eight city tour, Still the Same. While the name of the tour assures us that Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are still the same duo partners they were in their formative years, these two individuals have blossomed and grown over the years, making them anything but the same.

First and foremost, let us put this to bed: Nettles and Bush’s chemistry is every bit as fine-tuned and magnetic as it was when they were collecting awards and No. 1 plaques around every corner. The main difference you will notice is how much each of them, as individuals, has brought new life experiences into the pairing, making for a perfect blending of your old and new favorite duos rolled into one.

Other than hearing all new songs off Sugarland’s forthcoming album, Bigger (releasing June 8 on Big Machine), during the final rehearsal, the members of the audience were witness to the passion and love that oozes from Nettles and Bush on stage. There is absolutely no mistaking the joy in their eyes, the fire in their bellies, and the drive in their bones to make this reintroduction to what they call a “much broader” country music genre one for the books.

What you can expect this summer on Sugarland’s Still the Same Tour is to feel the happiness in your soul as you watch these two perform. You can also prepare yourself for cool new grooves, songs that make you want to let go and dance, and lyrics that will resonate long after you walk out the doors of the venue. We also suggest that you expect the unexpected from these two and their musical team, as they have some surprises up their sleeves for you that you will not want to miss!
