Editorial Reviews

2009 holiday release, the first Christmas album from the Country duo. The 10 songs on the album include classics like 'Holly Jolly Christmas,' 'Winter Wonderland' and several Sugarland originals. Sugarland exploded onto the music scene in '04 with Twice The Speed Of Life. Enjoy the Ride quickly followed in '06. Their third studio album Love On The Inside was released July '08 and skyrocketed them to superstardom, drawing fans from all genres and critics abroad.

Prime Cuts: Little Wood Guitar, City of Silver Dreams, Nuttin' for Christmas

Christmas CDs are a knotty affair: almost every successful artist is mandated to release one yuletide offering nowadays whether or not the set is birthed from the heart. With 5 number 1 hits, 3 multi-platinum albums, and a prime time TV special, success certainly has been a close relative of Sugarland. And like many country superstars, they have been lobbied by their record company to cut a seasonal effort as a stop-gap album in lieu of a brand new studio CD this year. Yet, this duo has not treated this as a contractual CD. Rather, on this hybrid effort, they have invested 5 original tunes, some of which are among their most heartfelt compositions. Even when they tackle the seasonal chestnuts, they have endorsed their interpretations with innovative creativity. Bursting the seams of genre classifications, these 10 cuts are made so much more interesting with doses of r & b, jazz, pop, country rock as well as even some traces of bluegrass.

The set's opener "City of Silver Dreams" is an instant heart grabber--a polished country pop ballad about a wide-eyed country girl's first Christmas in the urban jungle of New York City. Jennifer Nettles' heartfelt delivery emotes in convincing ways the loneliness of being homesick that truly staggers the heart. "Little Wood Guitar," written by Ellis Paul and Kristian Bush, is a finely honed narrative piece telling the story of how a girl's life changed since she received a guitar as her only gift one Christmas. Yet not is syrupy sentimental; Sugarland shows that they know how to have fun with "Nuttin' for Christmas.

The traditional covers are done in only a style that Sugarland can do (complete with verses of "Silent Night" in Spanish). It is amazing! But the songs that shine the brightest on this album are the brand new holiday songs. "Coming Home" has a very blues/soulful sound to it and is reminiscent of the Jennifer Nettles Band-style music. My favorites are "City of Silver Dreams" (the perfect holiday song), "Coming Home" and "Little Wood Guitar".

Yes - these may be "Christmas" songs, but the new original songs on here transcend religious beliefs. They are truely year-round songs of family, love, gratefulness and dreams.

This album is magical from start to finish! Make sure you buy some extra copies - they are perfect hostess gifts or stocking stuffers and everyone will love it.

With holiday shopping beginning earlier every year, why not have some fresh Christmas music to spur it along...enter Sugarland's 10 song cd Gold and Green. Actaully, 5 of these tracks have been previously released as a bonus cd in 2007. Yet those songs, for the most part, have been almost a best-kept secret reserved for Jennifer and Kristian's fans up until now. The lead track, "City of Silver Dreams" depicts NYC with lyrics as timeless as "White Christmas" or "Silver Bells"...Jennifer's delivery, while still distinctly country, takes Sugarland to a new level with a chorus of which even Irving Berlin would be proud. The title track is a sweet lullaby which one can imagine singing at bedtime to the little ones on Christmas Eve. The classic covers "Winter Wonderland", "O Come Emmanuel" (with its bare, haunting arrangement)and "Silent Night" (sung in English and Spanish) all show Jennifer Nettles' mastery of her vocal instrument's vast range of colors. Kristian's "Holly Jolly Christmas" and "Maybe Baby" give us a broader offering of his unique, charming and quite capable vocal chops...The Sugarland version of "Nuttin' For Christmas" is a fun backporch jam that will bring a smile. "Coming Home" is a bluesy, gospel-styled "home for the holidays" that successfully puts a Sugarland touch on another musical genre. Last, but certainly not least, "Little Wood Guitar" (part of the 2007 release) is truly worth the price of the cd alone; this Kristian Bush written song effectively brings to focus how a simple gift can transform a life...precious holiday food for thought. Sugarland's Gold and Green is a officially the first Holiday album from this prolific duo and hopefully one of many more to come.

If you're tired of the same old cover versions of traditional Christmas music, you're not alone. Sugarland must have felt the same way, for this nifty little early Christmas present from country's premiere duo contains as many original holiday-themed compositions as it does reworkings of the expected chestnuts. The pair even puts their signature style on some of the cover versions. For example, it might be hard to picture anyone else singing "Nuttin' for Christmas" after hearing Jennifer Nettles' comically mischievous take on the song.

But it's the 5 original compositions that really separate GOLD AND GREEN from the rest of the holiday pack. "City of Silver Dreams" opens the disc with snowy sweet love letter to New York City, a song that surely deserves a place among the all-time great Christmas tunes. "Coming Home" revisits the theme of the band's first single "Baby Girl" (even going so far as to have the mother in the song ask 'How's my baby girl?'), and it's hard not to see art imitating life when one realizes it was just 5 short years ago that Nettles and Co. burst onto the scene with that slice of life-on-the-road. The title track evokes a sort of country-tinged Carpenters, although even Karen Carpenter never got so choice a line as "The butter light of candlesticks/Chases snowflakes off the bricks." Kristian Bush takes the mic for "Maybe Baby (New Year's Day)", a restless plea to see an old lover during the holidays. While probably the weakest of the original songs here, it's still a fine Steve Earle-style mid-tempo rocker.

And then we come to what is not only the album's best song, it could be the song-writing and performance high point of Sugarland's career to date. "Little Wood Guitar" is as perfect a composition as has come around in many years.
