This Sunday, Bristow, Virginia was treated to the amazing country music duo known as Sugarland. And Reel Film News was on hand for the night’s performance. And great country music was what we were offered!
pening up first was a young man by the name of Canaan Smith. Smith is a native of the state of Virginia and a singer-songwriter. He took to the stage and performed his hit single We Got Us to a crowd that was delighted to see one of their own on stage.
Following Smith was Lauren Alaina. Lauren is a country singer from Georgia who rose to fame after becoming the runner-up on the tenth season of American Idol. Lauren’s debut album, Wildflower was released late last year and has proved to be a hit amongst country fans, including this audience here in Virginia.
Finally it was Sugarland to take the stage. The band is composed of singer-songwriters Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. Jennifer who is currently pregnant and looking amazingly good right now took to the stage along with Kristian to open the show. The first number to be sung was Wide Open. Jennifer beat on a drum the whole song while Kristian played the guitar. It was the perfect opening song by far.
Next up from their most recent album, The Incredible Machine was the song Stuck Like Glue. This naturally brought down the house as its upbeat tempo and catchy beat was a hit amongst the concert goers.
One of the great things about this tour was that it is called the “In Your Hands” Tour. So this meant that there was a lot of opportunities for fans to choose the songs that the band played. In fact, 2 of the songs were picked based solely upon what signs were found in the audience. 2 of the songs were picked based on internet voting specifically for this concert. And one of the songs was picked based on the audience’s text votes. It was truly in our hands.
The set list was as follows:
Stuck Like Glue
Pour Some Sugar On Me
Run Right Into You
All I Want To Do
Find The Beat
