No. 62: Sugarland, ‘Stay’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Mercury Nashville

Perhaps more than any song on the Top 100 Country Songs list, Sugarland‘s ‘Stay’ was aided by a wonderful music video. It’s difficult to tell if this hit would have turned into a career song for the duo if fans weren’t treated to the visual of Jennifer Nettles wearing little makeup and crying her eyes out.

‘Stay’ is a shut-up-and-listen kind of song. With a few notes from Kristian Bush’s acoustic guitar, rooms went dead quiet to hear one of the all-time great vocal performances. The group won Grammys, CMA and ACM Awards for the passionate track, which only peaked at No. 2 on the airplay charts. It quickly became Sugarland’s first platinum single for one million copies sold.
