Mobile is full of Sugarland fans. A duo comprised of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, Sugarland has dominated the country music scene with multi-platinum albums and Grammy Awards.
While Nettles has taken on the role of lead singer, Bush has remained a talented multi-instrumentalist that has worked (both on and off the stage) creating many of the band’s memorable tunes. With Sugarland on a temporary hiatus, Bush is using his free time to embark on a solo tour in support of his debut “Southern Gravity.” As with Sugarland, Bush is taking on many roles by acting as vocalist, songwriter, bandleader and producer.
“Trailer Hitch” is the first single from “Southern Gravity.” Bush joined his brother Brandon Bush and Tim Owens for the creation of the track, an ode to the simple life and charity — and a nod the pop country sound that has made Sugarland a favorite with many country fans. Bush complements the track with a music video where he busks on the streets.
Along with the charitable message of “Trailer Hitch,” Bush has partnered with Goodwill to encourage his fans to donate to their philanthropic mission. After playing Moe’s, Bush will start preparing for “The Great Escape” (Jan. 31–Feb. 7) at The Royalton Riviera Cancun in Mexico, where he will be joined by Parmalee and Frankie Ballard.
