Sugarland Deliver Passionate Performance at Nobel Peace Prize Concert
Sugarland may be coming off an action-packed year on the road, but you’d never know it by their energy-infused performance Sunday (Dec. 11) at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway. The duo joined a star-studded lineup that included David Gray, Jill Scott, Janelle Monáe, Matthew Morrison, Ellie Goulding, Bernhoft and the World Youth Choir.
Accompanied by a full orchestra, Sugarland was filled with energy as they performed two of their big hits, ‘Stuck Like Glue’ and ‘Tonight’ at the prestigious event. “Obviously when you get a call from the Nobel Peace Prize in general, you don’t say ‘No,’ Jennifer Nettles told CNN of the duo’s acceptance of the invitation. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get be in the company of such wonderful people but also upon learning it was these three women and it was three women in general there was a connection there that is both emotional and I think spiritual.”
In an earlier blog post on their website, Nettles and her musical partner Kristian Bush called the invitation to perform an “incredible privilege” and noted how this year’s Nobel honorees — Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman — worked for what the Norwegian Nobel Committee called “their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”
