Kristian Bush of Sugarland will be performing at the Watseka Theatre.

 

For a decade, Kristian Bush built his reputation as one half of the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning country duo Sugarland. He steered the ship in many ways: playing multiple instruments, singing harmonies, co-producing the group’s platinum-selling albums, and co-writing an award-winning catalog of songs (including five No. 1 singles and nearly a dozen Top 10 hits) about life and love in the American South.

 

On Southern Gravity, his first release as a solo artist -- due April 7, 2015 on Streamsound Records -- Bush occupies the spotlight himself, juggling the roles of vocalist, songwriter, bandleader and producer. The new album draws on the 300+ songs that Bush wrote during the past two years, after Sugarland embarked on an open-ended hiatus. Included in the mix is Southern Gravity's lead single, "Trailer Hitch," written with Tim Owens and Bush's brother, Brandon. Bush's success with Sugarland, sold more than 22 million albums during the ten years that followed. Along the way, launched five No. 1 singles, earned a well-deserved induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and took home trophies from the Grammys, AMAs, ACM Awards, CMT Music Awards and CMA Awards.

 

All ages are welcome. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. for dinner & a full bar. Tickets are $30 and are sold at the theater, charged by phone at the number above, or online at the website above.
