Help Wanted: Sugarland
I got a chance to spend some time with people I met through Twitter and ultimately, RadioPotato.com last night. Three super-cool girls that are REALLY into music and v-e-r-y into Sugarland.
Maybe because I have interviewed Eddie Owen from Eddie’s Attic and Jennifer Nettles had previously owned the venue in her early days, I have had A LOT of Sugarland fans be extremely kind to me and have graciously promoted Radiopotato to their friends. For that, I’m extremely grateful and respectful.
Anyway, something came out of my mouth that was greeted with 3 horrified looks and for a moment, almost complete disgust and disbelief. I said I didn’t get Sugarland. There, I said it.
Maybe it’s because I was born a yankee and never really got country music at all. Maybe it’s a little too twangy for my ears. I respect Jennifer and Kristian Bush tremendously for their incredible story and especially their contributions to the music scene in Atlanta. I just don’t get the music.
So I thought I’d call on the legions of fans and ask…at the risk of being lambasted, cursed, and abandoned altogether…what it is about Sugarland do you love so much? I really want to know.
