About Jennifer Nettles

Critic and fan-favorite Jennifer Nettles is a superstar entertainer on multiple platforms. Leading with her powerhouse vocals and vivacious energy, Jennifer released two critically acclaimed albums on Big Machine Records—Playing with Fire and To Celebrate Christmas—in addition to back-to-back headline tours in 2016, followed by a run of holiday-themed dates. Alongside Kristian Bush, Jennifer is part of the multi-platinum duo Sugarland, which recently released their first new music in seven years with their latest album Bigger, on Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville. The album features hit songs “Babe” (with Taylor Swift), which was just recently certified gold, and “Still the Same.” The duo just wrapped their “Still the Same 2018” tour across North America. 


ASCAP has honored Jennifer’s songwriting prowess with five awards in addition to her earning both an ACM and CMA Award for Song of the Year for “Stay.” The emotionally charged, platinum No. 1 hit also earned Jennifer two Grammy Awards for Best Country Song and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group. Additionally, she was awarded a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. As the first female artist to be the solo songwriter on an ACM Awards Song of the Year since 1972, Jennifer was acknowledged with a Crystal Milestone Award.


As an actress, Jennifer made her Broadway debut in 2015 as Roxy Hart in the Tony Award–winning, record-breaking musical Chicago and most recently starred as Donna in the Hollywood Bowl’s summer production of Mamma Mia!. For television, she portrayed Dolly Parton’s mom Avie Lee Parton in the 2015 hit Coat of Many Colors, and then reprised her role in the Emmy-nominated holiday-themed sequel, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love
