We think this half of Sugarland is an unsung hero.
Country duo Sugarland, featuring Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles, have been on a bit of a hiatus while both singers embarked on their solo careers. They are not broken up; they are just doing other things and stretching and flexing creative muscles. Remember, they dealt with a stage collapse at a state fair during one of their shows, which was no fault of their own.
While Nettles gets the lion's share of attention as the female vocalist of Sugarland, it's Bush who is the unsung hero. We dig what he does. His Southern Gravity solo album is aces and if you've not heard it, well you better get on that and fast.
Here are three reasons that Kristian Bush should be on your radar and if he's not, we're here to put him there.
• He is a terrific songwriter. He co-wrote all of the songs on his solo debut, which landed earlier this year.
• He is not straight country when on his own. His solo material boasts a warm and rootsy vibe, giving off the kind of positive energy that you just can't fake. It feels good. And it sounds better.
• He is currently on a USO Tour, and we love an artist that supports and gives back to our troops. Sugarland have done it and he is doing it as a solo act, as well.
