Sugarland Coming To Youngstown April 6

International super duo Sugarland will return to the road this spring in continued support of their highly-successful album, The Incredible Machine. Sugarland, with special guest Canaan Smith will play the Covelli Centre on Friday, April 6th as a part of their “In the Hands of the Fans Tour 2012”.  Tickets go on-sale to the general public on Friday, February 24th at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster, all ticketmaster locations, the venue box office, or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.

To hear Jennifer Nettles tell it, it’s a brand new day in Sugarland. Despite winning multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards-and selling more than 9 million records-the country-music duo of Nettles and Kristian Bush is embracing a creative rebirth.  Sugarland has achieved seven #1 singles since exploding onto the music scene in ’04 with Twice The Speed Of Life (“Baby Girl”/”Something More”). Enjoy the Ride (“Want To”/”Settlin'”/”Stay”) quickly followed in ’06 and their third studio album Love On The Inside (“It Happens”/”Love”/”All I Want To Do”/”Already Gone”) in July ’08, which skyrocketed them to superstardom, drawing fans from all genres and critics abroad.

As a thank you to their loyal fans, in August ’09, the duo released Live On The Inside, a CD/DVD set of live tracks, covers and footage from their “Love On The Inside” tour. The same month ABC aired an hour-long network special featuring the pair in their most beloved setting…on stage. The holiday season brought about Gold And Green, a 10-track holiday collection consisting of half standards and the other half originals, all of which Nettles and Bush co-wrote. They also co-produced.

They’ve received trophies from the Grammys, American Music Awards, the Academy of Country Music, CMT Music Awards and the Country Music Association. Nettles has performed at the Kennedy Center Honors with musical tributes to Bruce Springsteen and Neil Diamond and the duo has collaborated live with heavy-hitters like Adele, Rihanna and Lady Gaga among others. They have been seen all over the media spectrum with appearances on OprahGood Morning AmericaEllenThe Tonight Show with Jay LenoChelsea LatelyToday Show and CNN Heroes. Sugarland has performed in numerous European countries and have headlined multiple U.S. tours which continue to see out venues across the country.

This is another chance for Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley to welcome a huge musical act to our Covelli Centre.  Eric Ryan is on a roll!
