Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland has announced she will release her first solo
album this fall. She's working with well-known producer Rick Rubin, who has
worked with artists such as Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers,
Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Aerosmith and AC/DC. "I am absolutely thrilled and wholly
proud to be working with Rick," says Jennifer. "If you ask any musician who is
on their producer 'bucket list,' Rick would be on each and every one."
Jennifer's partner in Sugarland, Kristian Bush, has been pursuing his own
solo projects while Jennifer has been on maternity leave, after giving birth to
her song Magnus, back in January. There was no indication made whether the two
would work as a duo again in the future.
