Enjoy The Ride
Label: Mercury Nashville
Longtime fans of Sugarland may miss hearing the sweet voice of the band's founding member Kristen Hall, but then again fans of sultry frontwoman Jennifer Nettles will be stoked that she totally dominates Sugarland's second album. Where 2004's Twice the Speed of Life waxed reflective about finding one's self to a backdrop of polished countrypolitan production, Enjoy The Ride is much more upbeat, poppy and positive with inspired themes about confidently sinking your teeth into the life you have. Dig those chiming 12-string leads that open "County Line."
