Don’t miss a “sweet treat” Wednesday night (March 30) as Sugarland performs their new single “Something More” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Riding high with the success of Twice The Speed of Life, Sugarland’s “Baby Girl” is the highest charting debut single by a country music group in 14 years. The video for “Baby Girl” is nominated for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards, airing April 11, 2005 on CMT. The passion and optimism of Sugarland courses throughout their debut album, Twice The Speed of Life. Declaring strength without deteriorating into stridency, the songs are a celebration of all that life has in store and finding the silver lining even in the darkest clouds. “Baby Girl,” the first single, serves up a struggling singer who’s “so broke that it ain’t funny.” But she has big dreams and the certainty that she’ll reach them. “Something More” throbs with the dream of breaking away to experience something bigger, deeper and more exciting. The fed up housewife in “Down In Mississippi (Up to No Good)”gets mad that the dirty dishes and clothes are left for her to take care of, but finds relief by grabbing some girlfriends for a guilt-free spree away from home. Rather than looking for an escape, “Small Town Jericho,”details the wonder and beauty of down-home folks and everyday life in a tiny hometown. In “Stand Back Up,” the languorous ballad that closes the album, singer Jennifer Nettles dares someone to hurt her because no matter how far she’s pushed down, she will always stand back up.
