“Sugarland has found a way to stay in touch, with their audience and the broader world, by enlarging their scope on Bigger, and that's no small feat.” – NPR Music
 
"Few artists can meld the joyful and the thoughtful as exuberantly as the country-pop duo do on their sixth studio album.”
– Entertainment Weekly
 
"The duo is very much still the same. Its chemistry is there. Their trust in each other is intact. Their creative vision is in lockstep." – The Tennessean
 
“Sugarland haven’t missed a step. Bigger is, as the name suggests, an extrapolation of everything that made the celebrated pop country duo one of the biggest acts of the 2000s.” – Wide Open Country 
  

NASHVILLE, TN (June 20, 2018) - GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar duo SUGARLAND are celebrating the release of their critically acclaimed sixth studio record BIGGER, which arrived on June 8via a joint venture with Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville. The duo recently appeared on the TODAY Show on NBC to perform a captivating rendition of “Babe”, their newest single from the album. The track was written by Taylor Swift and is currently in the Top 30 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart and at Country radio. Watch the performance HERE now.
 
Returning from a hiatus that saw both Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush release highly praised solo albums, BIGGER marks Sugarland’s first new album in eight years. Bush and Nettles co-wrote nearly all of the songs on the album, and have so far been drawing praise across the board from critics and fans alike. BIGGER is now available digitally and physically HERE.
 
BIGGER embodies the musical spirit that fans have come to expect from Sugarland, combining upbeat tracks with powerful message songs that address specific issues facing the world today and spark conversations for tomorrow. "Our hopefulness and our sparkiness and our joy are things I think we do uniquely well, especially in the country format," says Jennifer of the set's sunnier material. "We offer that in a unique way.” Bush added, “My daughter is turning 13. I wondered if there was a way to help her through the world she’s growing up in. There are songs on this album that are inspired by the idea of that conversation, and I hope they will speak to people of all ages, no matter who they are or what they’re facing in life."
