Hanging out with Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland)

Back story on relationship with country music for you this Friday. 
In high school, I disliked country music with everything fiber of my being (yes I recognize that is pretty strong). We lived in Tokyo and I would listen to the military radio station and on Tuesday or Wednesday nights they would play country music and I would turn off my radio so fast when it came on. Fast forward to college, I was a convert to country music. It was what every girl was listening to. My first concert ever! was Rascal Flatts. 
Now this weekend I will be hanging out with Sugarland (ok actually I will be seeing them in concert).
Could.not.be.more.excited.
I have loved Sugarland since I first starting listening to them. I have their CDs, yes their actual full CD not just a song or two I bought in iTunes.
So that is part of my weekends plans hanging out (ok seeing them in concert) with Sugarland along with Canaan Smith and Lauren Alaina on Sunday in Santa Barbara
How cute is she?

My all-time favorite song of Sugarland's, Stuck Like Glue.
Other weekend plans, something about a California beerfest at the Madonna Inn in lovely San Luis Obispo. 
Cheers to a wonderful weekend, hope all of you have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

I LOVE Sugarland! I actually saw them in concert fall 2009. I've literally been in love with Jennifer Nettles since the band formed :) Have so much fun and an awesome, safe weekend!

I've always loved country music. Although I did have a phase there for a while when I wouldn't listen to it because it reminded me of a year of heartbreaks. :( But that's a different story! I've seen them in concert! Back in 2006 I think it was, I went to a Kenny Chesney concert and Sugarland and Dierks Bentley opened for them. I really love Sugarland's songs, but sometimes her voice irks me. But that's just me... ;)

Enjoy your concert and have a great weekend!

I'm not a huge country fan but I saw Sugarland about 2 years ago and enjoyed the show. I teach dance and one of the girls that I teach, her uncle is in the band. Crazy huh?!

So, somehow you have to sneak into the boy's bathroom at the Madonna inn... there is a pee-activated waterfall for the urinal, rocky background and all. Quite impressive :)

Just found your blog a few minutes ago, and SO glad I read this post! I saw Sugarland perform on TV some time last year and LOVED them... but totally forgot the name of the band, and didn't know the lyrics, so I couldn't look them up online. THANK YOU for posting this!! "Stuck Like Glue" is the song they performed that day. SOOO glad I came across this post. =) They're pretty awesome.
