Sugarland Reveals Art, Track Listing & Collaboration With Taylor Swift on Upcoming Album, “Bigger”

After a five-year hiatus, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland surprised the country music-loving world by reuniting at the CMA Awards on Nov. 8, 2017, to present the trophy for Duo of the Year to Brothers Osborne.

Now, more than five months later, the duo has some definitive plans for 2018, including kicking off their Still the Same Tour on May 4 and releasing their upcoming sixth studio album, Bigger, on June 8.

The new album, which was co-produced by Kristian, Jennifer and Julian Raymond, features 11 songs, 10 of which were co-written by Kristian and Jennifer. The outlier is a track titled “Babe,” which was penned by Taylor Swift and Train’s Pat Monahan and features vocals from Taylor.

“This album has a whole bunch of mystery,” says Kristian “I’m listening to it every two days just to see what’s in it. I have entire pints of blood in that thing, but I still don’t know where it all came from, and I love that.”

“We have always enjoyed playing in the margins and stretching the format,” says Jennifer. “But it’s fun to have taken this time away and seen how the format has expanded and how music has evolved. Before, we were playing in the margins. Now, the margins have moved, and that’s fun to hear.”

The duo’s lead single, “Still the Same,” is currently No. 49 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 15 weeks.
