Sugarland Preview

I think my Dad is in love with Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles, which may have something to do with why he jams Sugarland so loud in his car – but it could also be that the country duo (which also includes multi-instrumentalist Kristian Bush) is rather great, as “Stuck Like Glue” off their last album, 2010’s The Incredible Machine, illustrates. Its guitar-and-scatting intro segues into a poppy verse accented by Nettles’ Georgia twang, and the song features a borderline reggae bridge but is centered on a downright countrified hook. Country music fans love Sugarland because they write country, but music fans dig them because they’re pretty and fun.
