Sugarland and Tim McGraw Celebrate Christmas with Oprah

Posted by Sarah Norton on 12/01/2009

CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Sugarland did a duet with Jennifer Hudson on the Oprah show on Monday. The Country duo is helping Oprah Winfrey celebrate the holidays during the Christmas edition of her show as one of several acts performing live for the first time with another artist.

In addition to Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush performing with Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige did a duet with Andrea Bocelli, and Tim McGraw sang a version of John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" with Alicia Keys.

Bush said, “The only thing better than having appeared on Oprah in February and getting her phone number would be that her phone number pops back up on your phone, and she says, ‘Would you come back and be on my show again?’”
Sugarland will also tape TNT’s annual “Christmas In Washington” special Dec. 13 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The performance for President Barack Obama will air Dec. 20.
