Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles Going Solo With Rick Rubin's Help

(Radio.com) It hasn't been even a week since Jennifer Nettles tweeted out some cute photos of her with her five-month-old son Magnus, but now the Sugarland singer has unveiled the news that she is working again. Specifically, she is in the midst of recording her first solo album. And the man helping her with songs and production on the project is none other than Rick Rubin.

"I'm super-respectful of his pedigree," Nettles says of Rubin, who has worked with such artists as Johnny Cash, The Band Perry, Neil Diamond, the Dixie Chicks, the Beastie Boys, Slayer and Tom Petty. "I still get nervous around him, in a kind of a music-crush way."

Nettles tweeted the news to fans on Friday, " I am absolutely thrilled and wholly proud to be working with Rick Rubin on my new solo album!"

The album, Nettles' first without her Sugarland partner Kristian Bush, has no official release date yet, or even a title, but according to Rolling Stone it is due sometime this fall.

"This album is different than what I've done before," Nettles told Rolling Stone. "What I do with Sugarland, primarily it's stuff that starts with me and Kristian [Bush, Sugarland co-founder] writing together. It's fun to play with that masculine energy, but for this I wanted to do something really personal more intimate and emotional." more on this story
