Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles Sets Solo Album Release Date
The Sugarland star tweeted "The release date is set! Mark those calendars - my debut solo album "That Girl" is coming Jan. 14th woo-hoo! budurl.com/9m4p".
That Girl will be Nettles' first outing without her Sugarland partner Kristian Bush (Sugarland is on hiatus, and Bush is also working on solo material). The album was produced by Rick Rubin and includes collaborations with such artists as Richard Marx and Butch Walker–the latter cowriting the title track, which is also the album's first radio single.
"I love what I do with Sugarland," Nettles told CBS Charlotte's The New 103.7 (a Radio.com station) this summer. "But I've been wanting to do this project for a long time and [I] have been writing for it for three years. There's the sound we have in Sugarland, but there was something I wanted to do that was a different sound."
Nettles has already gained good attention for her single "That Girl," which she released in August. As she explained to Radio.com at the time, the basic idea of the song is of a woman "who had been tricked, bamboozled if you will" by a man she had been seeing, who didn't let on that "he had someone else in the picture. But when she finds that out, she says, 'Oh no, I'm gonna call her and tell her that you're being that guy, because I don't want to be that girl with that stigma.'" more on this story
