Ever since it was unveiled during the CMA Awards and there was a special performance by them during the Big Machine CMA Awards after party announcing their return, I have eagerly-awaited new music from Sugarland.

They are back after a 7 year hiatus and newly-signed to a joint venture between Big Machine Label Group and UMG Nashville releasing their first single, “Still The Same”, to country radio yesterday.

I have to admit that tears filled my eyes and I was so ecstatic to see them reunited as Sugarland when Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta announced they were back together as a duo and releasing new music soon back in November.

As great as Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are as solo artists with each enjoying success on their own, there is just something magical when they come together as Sugarland.

This new song, “Still The Same”, is the perfect single to mark their return as the multi award-winning duo.  The lyrics are poignant and heartfelt.  The mid tempo melody is hopeful and anthem-like.  You feel the energy.  The song as a whole wells up emotions inside and you can not help but celebrate their return right along with them.  There is a renewed enthusiasm that just exudes from them evident in the music video.

Check it out below and hear this beautiful, new song from them that I predict will go number one rather quickly.

Obviously, I highly-recommend buying it today and support Sugarland’s return.


Yesterday, superstar Country duo Sugarland released their first single in seven years via a new joint venture with Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville. The single, “Still The Same,” is both aptly-titled and features the strength and positivity fans have come to expect from the acclaimed pair of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. Lyrics echo: “Let’s leave it better than how it came / our love is / still the same.” The hitmakers premiered the song worldwide with all digital partners, it’s available here:

Since the band’s inception in 2002, Sugarland has sold nearly 10 million albums domestically, achieving high-mark sales with PLATINUM-certified THE INCREDIBLE MACHINE, 2X PLATINUM LOVE ON THE INSIDE and 3X PLATINUM TWICE THE SPEED OF LIFE as well as ENJOY THE RIDE. Their most popular songs include PLATINUM-certified “All I Want to Do” and “Stay,” 2X PLATINUM “Stuck Like Glue” as well as GOLD-certified “Baby Girl,” “It Happens,” “Settlin’,” “Something More” and “Want To.” Sugarland has also earned seven No. 1 singles to date and amassed over 260 million on-demand streams. Their critical and mainstream appeal has been magnified with industry accolades – five consecutive CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year (2007-2011), five ACM Awards (including Song of the Year and Single of the Year) and GRAMMY® Awards for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Country Song for “Stay.”

Sugarland will end the year with an exciting performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018, which airs on ABC from New York City’s Times Square. Continuing the momentum, they have confirmed dates at C2C: Country 2 Country Music Festival in Europe next Spring and teased more live shows to come. For more information about upcoming music and tours, visit
