Well, I liked Jennifer Nettles first solo project, the Rick Rubin-produced “That Girl.” I thought it was an eclectic gathering of songs that – as usual – she sang brilliantly, but a project without radio hits. And we all know some stellar albums sometimes don’t have those. Such is not the case with Nettles latest single called “Sugar.” Remember that the most enjoyable candy has plenty of sugar in it. And, this “Sugar” is pretty much 100% ear candy, which means tempo, a catchy hook and a great, fun, summertime feel. This will remind you of the work Nettles did as part of Sugarland – work that yielded she and Kristian Bush CMA, ACM and Grammy Awards, plus numerous #1 albums and singles. Very often, ear candy becomes an ear worm – this happened fast for me with “Sugar,” as the chorus “Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie some of that sugar/ Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie something sweet” has a teasing, alluring quality to it. It’s good to hear her voice again; I hope we’ll all be hearing large doses of “Sugar” on Country radio soon. Impacts July 27th.
