The voice of Sugarland returns to her mainstream country roots with this infectious confection. “Sugar” is as infectious as anything she recorded with her band and it’s easy to see why she’d wanna release the catchy, hook filled song as the lead single from her sophomore album. It still remains to be seen if radio will play her as a solo artist but it’s not for a lack of fun, radio-ready tunes this time around.
For fans who loved Jennifer's That Girl album, this will feel like a bait and switch but anyone who followed Sugarland as long as folks have followed the band should've know that a return to mainstream sounds, at least for radio singles, was always going to be possible with Jennifer Nettles having been a part of the mainstream for so long. "Sugar" is a strong entry into the mainstream canon and one I'm glad she's releasing.
