Country superstar Jennifer Nettles will bring her “That Girl,” solo headlining tour to City National Civic (formerly the San Jose Civic) on March 27.
Nettles’ 2014 tour will travel through more than 30+ cities following the release of her highly anticipated debut solo album That Girl on January 14. The album was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at the famous Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California.
Nettles, known as the lead vocalist for international super duo Sugarland, has become one of the most popular singer-songwriters in music today. A Grammy, AMA, CMT and CMA Award winner, Nettles has won five ASCAP awards for her songwriting abilities, and in 2008 individually received a Grammy Award, ACM Award and CMA Award for penning the emotionally charged, platinum-selling No. 1 hit “Stay.” At the 2009 ACM Awards, Nettles was honored with the “Crystal Milestone Award” for being the first woman to be the solo songwriter on an ACM “Song of the Year” winner since 1972.
Her fans have grown to expect Nettles to deliver memorable, heartfelt performances both individually and with surprise duet partners: At the 2007 AMAs, Beyoncé joined Sugarland on stage for a countrified version of her hit single “Irreplaceable.” Two years later, at The Kennedy Center Honors, Nettles paid tribute to icon Bruce Springsteen, covering “Glory Days” and “I’m On Fire” with Ben Harper. In 2010, Nettles, Katy Perry and Keri Hilson opened VH1 Divas: Salute The Troops with a playful and sexy reprise of the WWII-era hit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and most recently Nettles treated fans to a show-stopping performance of “You and I” with Lady Gaga at the 2011 ‘Grammy Nominations Live’ concert.
