Artist of the Week: Sugarland

Sugarland re-invent themselves as the striking duo in counrty realm with their latest release, 'Love on the Inside'.
When Kristian Bush left his band Billy Pilgrim few years back, it was probably the right decision to make. The Knoxville native joined two other aspiring artists, Jennifer Nettles and Kristen Hall to make one third of Sugarland, a country trio that broke through the mainstream with their single "Baby Girl" in 2004. The trio has received a Grammy nomination, plus several other notable country awards and the now-duo are vying for another with their latest release "Love on the Inside".

The new album is available in two different versions; the deluxe fan edition that hits stores on July 22 and the regular one which will be in shelves a week after that. The deluxe version contains 12 songs, along with five extra songs including the live version of "Life in a Northern Town" that they performed with Little Big Town and Jake Owen, plus a downloadable video content. Meanwhile, the regular one will include only the 12 songs.

The deluxe fan edition of the album has been critically acclaimed following its release and it is expected to debut at #2 on Billboard Hot 200 when the building chart is wrapped up on Wednesday, July 30. Apart from their credibility, the success has been derived mainly due to the first single off the LP that has received a warm welcome from their fans. "All I Want to Do" not only peaked at #3 on U.S. Country Songs chart, but also reached #18 on Billboard Hot 100. It has been confirmed earlier last week that they will spawn "Already Gone" as the second single.

In support of the album, they have prepared a headlining tour that has been kicked off and will stretch through November this year. Along with their slot, there will be the opening acts from aspiring singer Ashton Shepherd and American Idol alumna Kellie Pickler.
