Sugarland Goes "Live on the Inside"

Posted by Kasey Bell on 06/23/2009

Two-time and reigning CMA Duo of the Year Sugarland will be getting their own TV special later this summer. "Live on the Inside," an hour-long concert with backstage footage and interviews filmed at Rupp Arena in Kentucky, will air on ABC at 8 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 3.  This comes a day before the duo's CD/DVD combo of the same name hits Wal-Mart stores nationwide.
"Television music specials and performances become iconic. Who hasn't seen replays of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan or Elvis's TV special wearing his jump suit and giving away his scarf?" said Jennifer Nettles. "Even performances that I can remember as a child, like 'Live Aid' for example, really made such an impact. We are so excited to have our show on ABC and hope that it will be a moment that people will enjoy and remember."
The ABC special was produced and directed by Shaun Silva and had 20 cameras on deck to capture the energy of the duo's concerts. The special features performances of "Settlin," "Stay," "All I Want To Do" and "Something More," as well as never before televised performance footage.
