Kristian Bush Will Be the Subject of Nash TV Films’ First Feature Film Documentary

Kristian Bush

It’s a heartbreak-to-happiness story to hear and it had to be difficult to tell, but in September, the life and career Sugarland’s Kristian Bush is the subject of the documentary Walk Tall: The Journey of Sugarland’s Kristian Bush.

The past four years have been riddled with monumental events for Kristian. On August 13, 2011, while he and Sugarland partner Jennifer Nettles were preparing to take the stage at the Indiana State Fair, a gust of wind from an area storm caused parts of the stage to collapse into the crowd. The aftermath was devastating. Seven people died, and many others were injured awaiting the duo’s Incredible Machine performance.

Emotionally, the tragedy shook the members of Sugarland to their core, but for Kristian, it was the first event in a series of what could have been perceived as setbacks. A few months after the stage collapse in late 2011, he and his wife, Jill, filed for divorce. Then in 2012, Jennifer Nettles gave birth to her first child and Sugarland went on hiatus.

It could have derailed anyone, but in Walk Tall, Kristian explains how he got back on track and release his first solo album, Southern Gravity.

Nash TV Films is the newest development in the NASH entertainment brand. Walk Tall: The Journey of Sugarland’s Kristian Bush is the first feature-length film from the company.

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.
