A Few of Sugarland's Favorite Things
Vocal Duo of the Year recipient Sugarland was in Chicago for an upcoming Oprah show, and they revealed to radio station B93.7 WSNX some of the people and things they are currently loving.
With the release of their Christmas album, Gold and Green, Jennifer Nettles already knew one of her favorite songs. "My favorite holiday song is on this record, and it's called 'O Come O Come Emmanuel,' she told the Michigan-based station. "That's a beautiful song of just longing and wishing and hoping and then just the celebration and the chorus."
Kristian Bush had an uncharacteristic song stuck in his head. "That Miley Cyrus song is in my head and I can't get it out!" he said of Miley's latest single, 'Party in the U.S.A." 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 conceded. "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."
Kristian doesn't normally act that way, and Jennifer said that, "sometimes I have to remind Kristian, 'Kristian, we're famous!"
There are plenty things in the entertainment world that Jennifer is crazy about. "I love Johnny Depp. Love love love. I love Tim Burton as a director. I love 'Harry Potter.'" She also has an eye on a French-based group that is new on the scene here. "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 is getting ready to join in the holiday festivities with President Obama when they join Mary J. Blige, Usher and other artists for the annual gala, Christmas in Washington, which will air on TNT Dec. 20.
