Sugarland and the Beatles ‘Come Together’ at Abbey Road
Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush have had numerous career highlights in the last few years. But for all the awards and accolades, one moment shines a little brighter for the duo, thanks to their heroes, the Beatles.
"We went to Abbey Road [studios]," Kristian tells the Toledo Blade. "Jennifer and I sat in there and re-recorded 'Come Together' to mark the 40th anniversary of the ['Abbey Road'] album. We were doing it in the same studio on the same mikes as the Beatles. I was just like, 'Wow!"
Already in Europe as part of their worldwide tour, Jennifer and Kristian were invited to perform as part of a Beatles tribute album for a British television show, 'Live From Abbey Road,' set to air later this year. Admittedly, says Kristian, it's going to be a tough act to follow. "Seriously, I have to pinch myself sometimes."
The duo, nominated for CMA Awards in the Vocal Duo of the Year and Album of the Year categories, were also recently announced as performers on the show, which will air Nov. 11. Their latest album, 'Live on the Inside,' reached No. 1 on both the country and pop charts.
