Sugarland, ‘Stuck Like Glue’ — Story Behind the Lyrics

Dana Tynan

Sugarland‘s latest single, ‘Stuck Like Glue,hit No. 1 on the digital charts soon after its release. With its country meets pop meets reggae sound, this tune is just another example of how the duo mix and meld musical influences to create Sugarland’s ever-changing sound. Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush tell The Boot the story behind ‘Stuck Like Glue’:

Jennifer: We always like to hear what other people think a good Sugarland song will sound like. [Kevin Griffin and Shy Carter] wrote a song for us, and we wanted to hear it. When we did, we thought it was great. It sounds like us. [The final version of] ‘Stuck Like Glue’ [developed from] that song they wrote for us. Kris and I wrote [most of] it, and Kevin and Shy did the chorus. It’s lighthearted and sassy and just a great fit for us.

Kristian: The song is about having fun; it’s supposed to make you feel good. Sometimes you try to write a song that you want to change the world, and sometimes you write a song that you want to just change your day! This song is just supposed to change your day, but the fact that it has provoked conversation is OK! Art is supposed to be provocative. If it isn’t, it belongs in an elevator.

Jennifer: Every song has different influences. I love all kinds of music. On my [MP3 player], it’s a smorgasboard of rap, R&B, classic rock, indie, gospel, bluegrass — I love it all. Each part touches a different place in my heart. We listen to it all and we use it all.

‘Stuck Like Glue’ is aggressive and bold. It’s music people haven’t associated with Sugarland before. But you don’t have to stay in one place or wear certain clothing or lead a certain lifestyle to be country.
