Sugarland Beats Brooks & Dunn For CMA Vocal Duo
Says Nettles, "They've had a good ride"
Asked backstage in the press room if they'd been rooting for Brooks & Dunn since it was their latter's last year of eligibility, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles had a funny and honest answer.
While noting that Brooks & Dunn were early supporters and took Sugarland out on tour early in the latter's career, Nettles said, "At the same time, it’s every man for himself out there and they’ve had a good ride of it. We’re proud of them and hope they’re proud of us,"
Nettles also called the win "validating," saying, "This has been a year of growth and expansion for us, and we’re super excited about the fans we’re bringing into country music."
