Sugarland to Ring in 2018 Together at Famous Dick Clark New Year’s Eve Show
A month ago, Sugarland were nowhere to be found, and now they're everywhere! The recently-reunited duo are set to perform as part of the 2018 edition of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve — and that's just the kickoff of a big year.
Hot off the news of new music and a tour in the new year, the twosome comprised of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will take the stage during the beloved New Year's Eve tradition in New York City at Times Square.
"Ain't no party like a Sugarland party!" the country duo confirm in a Twitter post about ringing in the new year.
The yearly show will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest in the Big Apple, while pop singer Ciara will host the Hollywood Party from Los Angeles. Nick Jonas and Camilla Cabello have also been tapped to perform during the legendary New Year's show.
Nettles and Bush reunited for the first time since their split in 2013 at the 2017 CMA Awards to present the trophy for Vocal Duo of the Year to Brothers Osborne. Since then, they've been going nonstop announcing new music, an album and tour for 2018. They're new single, "Still the Same," is set to drop on Dec. 21.
"... We never closed the door. We never said like, ‘We’re breaking up forever!’ We said, ‘Guys, we’re gonna go do other things.’ So when you don’t close a door, you can walk back through it," Nettles explains during an interview on the Bobby Bones Show.
Both Nettles and Bush ventured off into solo careers during their four-year hiatus, with Nettles releasing two albums that reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, while Bush's 2015 album, Southern Gravity, made it to the Top 20 on the same chart.
