Jennifer Nettles Performs ‘Falling’ on the ‘Today’ Show
In celebration of the release of her solo album, ‘That Girl,’ Jennifer Nettles stopped by the ‘Today’ show to perform ‘Falling,’ a song featured on the release.
‘Falling’ is a much more vulnerable song that the title track off the album, and it shows off Nettles’ vocal chops well. The personal nature of the song mimics the journey that she has taken by branching out from Sugarland and beginning a solo career.
“When you’re going out on your own, there’s a little bit of vulnerability that’s different,” she tells Matt Lauer. “It makes me feel vulnerable.”
‘That Girl’ was voted January’s Album of the Month by The Boot readers, winning out over Ronnie Milsap and Rhonda Vincent. The album features collaborations with Butch Walker, Richard Marx and Sara Bareilles, and was tracked live to create a more intimate sound.
“I think this album so far for me musically has been the most intimate and personal … musically and vocally,” Nettles explains. “I think it’s way more intimate to me and way more personal in the sense that when you collaborate, that’s the nature of collaboration, you’re affecting each other, and playing with and inspiring each other, and yet there are things that one may not get to do or want to do when collaborating.”
