Jennifer Nettles isn’t the only member of Sugarland heading out on a solo tour in 2014.    Kristian Bush has announced he too will be going on a solo tour of his own.

Kristian has told Sugarland fans not to worry however. This isn’t a permanent separation.

“I’m just in a different place in life than she is,” he said. “You can either look at [the break] as a good thing or a bad thing. I look at it as a good thing. Can you imagine what we will do after we gather all this knowledge? It’s going to be insane!”

Kristian will begin his solo trek with an appearance at the 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida and then proceed along the Southeast coast with stops in the Carolinas and Georgia. He’ll also be performing solo during 2013 for his annual Thanksgiving show in Decatur, GA, and he’ll play a show with Chris Young and Brett James in Decatur on December 1 as well.

Jennifer Nettles Reveals ‘That Girl’ Album Cover & Track Listing

Jennifer Nettles That Girl

Jennifer Nettles will release her highly anticipated debut solo album That Girl on January 14th. The album was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at the famous Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California.

“I started writing this album three years ago,” shares Nettles. “I put no conscious guides or governors on the creation of this album other than to write songs that I want to sing. Working with Rick Rubin was a dream come true and the result is an album that plays to my roots – country, 70’s radio, gospel and singer songwriter.”

Ten of the 11 tracks on the album were written or co-written by Nettles and include collaborations with songwriters Butch Walker, Phillip Sweet (Little Big Town), Richard Marx and Sara Bareilles, among others. Jennifer covers Bob Seger’s “Like A Rock” which she was drawn to as she is the same age as Seger was when he wrote the song. Jennifer wanted to interpret the song from the female perspective exploring feminine strength. The title track from the album is currently climbing the country radio charts.

That Girl Track Listing:
1. “Falling” (Written by Jennifer Nettles)
2. “Me Without You” (Written by Jennifer Nettles, Tim Owens and Derek George)
3. “Moneyball” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Scott Patton)
4. “That Girl” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Butch Walker )
5. “This Angel” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Mike Reid)
6. “Jealousy” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Kevin Griffin)
7. “This One’s For You” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Sara Bareilles)
8. “Know You Wanna Know” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Richard Marx)
9. “Thank You” (Written by Jennifer Nettles and Phillip Sweet)
