Jennifer Nettles is officially ready to release her solo album and has announced the date: January 14th. The Sugarland singer has a busy week ahead of her, full of appearances and album promotion, according to AP.
On Sunday, she started the week with a listening party for her new album, entitled "That Girl". She will continue the madness by attending the CMA Awards on Wednesday, and on Friday, will serve as host at the taping of the CMA Christmas show.
So, how will her solo music compare to what we are used to with her musical other half, Kristian Bush?
"I think this album so far for me musically has been the most intimate and personal ... musically and vocally," Nettles said. "I think it's way more intimate to me and way more personal in the sense that when you collaborate, that's the nature of collaboration, you're affecting each other, and playing with and inspiring each other, and yet there are things that one may not get to do or want to do when collaborating."
That's not the only big change in her life. It has been 11 months since Nettles gave birth to her son, Magnus. Motherhood has also changed Nettles, as it changes everyone, and she says that has made a huge difference, as well. "I'm able to show a side that I think's more womanly," Nettles said. "I think it's more mature, and so that's big for me. I think it gives you perspective all around, not just musically but also in my career."
"I think you get super-efficient because you have to be. You don't worry about things that were super-important before because you have a baby and you just burn that underbrush out. You feel like a huntress."
I never thought of it that way, but so true. Well, I'm sure from the overwhelming success she has enjoyed from her Sugarland collaboration, we are in for a treat with Jennifer Nettles' new solo album, "That Girl".
