Jennifer Nettles of Country duo Sugarland has declared that she’s proud of her fans, no matter what their sexual orientation. reports that the Country star told, "I've been aware even before Sugarland. I've actually performed at Gay Pride in Atlanta three times in my career. I've always had a large gay following, particularly in the lesbian community. I am grateful for that. To me, it means my music transcends categories. It also means that I'm a cute girl singing a rock song in an alto voice!"

Nettles says she and singing partner Kristian Bush strive to make music that "celebrates the human condition" -- no matter what.

"I had a friend write me that our music was being played at Gay Pride in New York, which is a big compliment," she said. "In the biggest city in the country with the most culture and the most grit -- I love it."

Sugarland is currently on tour and celebrating the debut of their live CD/DVD set. Tour dates can be found at
