Superstar country duo, Sugarland, hit the stage on ABC-TV’s Live with Kelly and Ryan yesterday, performing the title track from their new album, Bigger. Click here to watch their performance.
Dressed in all black with hints of glitter and gold, the duo shined on the uptempo ode to rising above adversity and self-doubt to find better days. Backed by a five-piece band and one background vocalist, Jennifer Nettles took center stage, as usual, her distinct vocal styling and undeniable presence the focal point. While its hard to look away from Nettles during this performance or any, Kristian Bush holds his own, providing vocals and always appearing to be having the time of his life on-stage.
The pair previously appeared on Live in May, performing the album’s first single, “Still the Same,” and premiering the quirky, “Babe,” which features Taylor Swift. Lyrically, “Bigger” focuses on a message of hope, one that can be found throughout Sugarland’s new album.
“It’s getting harder and harder to hold our heads up high/ Baby let’s circle the wagons / Show all the dragons they don’t own the sky / We know how to fly / Gravity can’t hold us down / We’re moving at the speed of sound / Past the point from here on out / There’s no going back / ‘Cause we were born for better days / We’ll find a way yeah / We’re gonna be bigger”
Bigger, released in June on Big Machine Machine Label Group, is Sugarland’s first album release as a duo since 2010’s The Incredible Machine. During their hiatus from the band, both Nettles and Bush released solo albums and pursued outside opportunities, including a stint in Broadway’s “Chicago” for Nettles.
Sugarland will continue its Still the Same tour with upcoming stops in Wichita, KS, Highland Park, IL, St. Paul, MN and Grand Island, NE. The duo will take the New York area by storm with a show at New Jersey’s Prudential Center on September 8. Get tickets here!
