Still Riding the 'Sugarland' Express

I am a big fan of what I believe to be the BEST new country act around, a group called 'Sugarland'. They've had a great year since the release of their debut album 'Twice the Speed of Life', including lead singer Jennifer Nettles' work with Bon Jovi in a somewhat country-fied version of 'Who Says You Can't Go Home'.

You can check out that video (which I think is an improvement over the BonJovi only version), along with their latest 'Down in Mississippi' here... Go on... just scroll down to the Videos section and check out both videos.


I'm very excited about going to see them in concert next Sunday night at Mandalay Bay's Beach venue. It's always a blast there.

Sugarland is a great act. I was bummed to hear the female guitar player bailed, but that happens, I guess.

Awesome band Z! Do you like Little Big Town or Big & Rich too? I think these are the 3 best groups to come out in quite awhile.

Angie......do you like the song by Bon Jovi with the girl singing with him (Jennifer Nettles)..."Who Says You Can't Go Home"??? If so the girl is the lead singer in Sugarland. If you've heard it and like it then you do do country.

No, sorry, never even heard of it. I'm pretty much listening to top 40, 80's or my CDs.....

At this point of time the only country music band that is winning awards is Rascal Flatts and it going to stay that way for many many more years to come.

Sizz... Yes, I like both of those groups, too. Saw Little Big Town a couple of years ago before they had any hits (opening act for a big 5 act festival) and have seen B&R in a Musik Mafia show. They're playing again on an open air stage downtown soon.

And... a lot of people may not have heard or seen that version of the song. Bon Jovi has their OWN version without Jennifer ::gasp :: that is doing well on Pop's Top 40 charts.

Personally I like both versions of the song.
Yeah Z they're pretty good. Jennifer's a cutie too.
They're already huge concidering that they're a pretty new
act.
