Sugarland Share a Few of Their Favorite Things
Sugarland might want to add their recent trophy for Vocal Duo of the Year to their list of favorite things. The duo, in Chicago for an upcoming Oprah show, recently revealed who and what they are currently loving.
Getting into the holiday spirit with the release of their Christmas album, 'Gold and Green,' Jennifer Nettles knew immediately what song had to be included. "My favorite holiday song is on this record, and it's called 'O Come O Come Emmanuel,' she tells Michigan-based radio station B93. "That's a beautiful song of just longing and wishing and hoping and then just the celebration and the chorus."
Kristian Bush reveals his new favorite song, and he admits it's a bit out of character for the rocker. "That Miley Cyrus song is in my head and I can't get it out!" he says, referring to her latest single, 'Party in the U.S. A.' But Miley isn't the only artist Kristian is focusing on.
"I spent way too much money flying across the country to see the one U2 show I was available to see," he concedes. "I took out the rock star card. I flew on the day and went to the Rose Bowl and saw U2 light up the Rose Bowl in that giant spaceship that they call a show and then flew back."
Jennifer says that behavior is certainly not typical for her partner. "Sometimes I have to remind Kristian, 'Kristian, we're famous!" she exclaims.
Jennifer says there is a lot in the entertainment world she's crazy about right now. "I love Johnny Depp. Love love love. I love Tim Burton as a director. I love 'Harry Potter.'" She also has her eye on an up-and-coming group. "I just came across a new band that I love. It's a rock band called Phoenix ... they put out one of the coolest albums this year, I think, ever."
Sugarland's recent CD and DVD, 'Live on the Inside,' debuted at No. 1. The duo are getting ready to share the holiday spirit with the President, when they join Mary J. Blige, Usher and others for the annual 'Christmas in Washington' gala, airing on TNT on Dec. 20.
