Sugarland BiographyThe duo went on hiatus in 2013, just two years after a tragic stage collapse before their scheduled set at the Indiana State Fair killed seven people. They have both pursued solo careers, but the question of an eventual Sugarland reunion has always lingered. Nettles tells Bones that it's not a big shock to either one of them that they are back together, since "we never closed the door. We never said like, ‘We’re breaking up forever!’ We said, ‘Guys, we’re gonna go do other things.’ So when you don’t close a door, you can walk back through it." Sugarland made their first live public appearance together in years at the 2017 CMA Awards on Nov. 8, presenting the Vocal Duo of the Year award. It's an honor they have taken home more than once, and they set the rumor mill spinning once again by speculating about maybe winning it again, saying, "and well, who knows?" They confirmed the rumors on Nov. 9 in a press release that announced new music for 2018. No further details have yet been announced regarding either new music, or cities and dates for Sugarland's 2018 tour.

Wide Open Country goes into great detail on what happened behind the scenes.
- Who was Sugarland's song "Stay" about? - Sugarland’s “Stay” is the first of the duo’s chart-topping songs to solely be written by singer Jennifer Nettles. Although she has never lived the storyline of the song, she knew the subject of betrayal is something everyone could relate to, yet she wanted to tell the story from a different viewpoint. The song was written four years ago and inspired by Reba McEntire’s “Whoever’s in New England,” which was written from the perspective of a wife whose husband is cheating on her. Nettles knew countless songs written from that viewpoint but none from the other two people involved. She says most people don’t realize that even the person who is doing the cheating gets hurt as well. Read more...
