Grammy Award winner and one half of platinum-selling country duo Sugarland Kristian Bush has reunited with longtime producer Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw) for his first-ever solo album. The highly anticipated album will be released on Streamsound Records, of which Gallimore is a co-owner.

“I’m so excited to be working with Byron Gallimore again,” shares Bush. “I’m constantly surprised at how creative I feel and how innovative he is every time we hit record.”

Bush and Gallimore previously teamed up for Sugarland’s top-selling studio albums; the 3X Platinum ENJOY THE RIDE, 2X Platinum LOVE ON THE INSIDE and Platinum-certified THE INCREDIBLE MACHINE, as well as their 2009 Christmas collection GOLDEN AND GREEN.

“After working on four records with Sugarland, I know Kristian’s musical abilities well. He is a great singer, songwriter, and all-around musician. I am thrilled to be working with him on this album and proud to have him as part of our Streamsound Records family,” shares Byron Gallimore. “The music he is getting ready to drop on country radio is some of the most exciting I’ve heard in years.”

Currently, Bush is on the road with his 2014 PUT YOUR SOUL IN IT Tour, backed by a five-piece band. In between shows, he is in the studio working on his forthcoming album. The lead single from the project will hit country radio nationwide this summer.

Kristian Bush Announces Solo Dates for 2014

Kristian Bush

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.
