Sugarland Snag Vocal Duo of the Year, Thank Indiana at 2011 CMA Awards

Despite nearly 10 years of unthinkable success as a duo, Sugarland still maintain a humble attitude. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush very modestly accepted the award for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 2011 CMA Awards … for the fifth time.

“Thank you so much to the fans… I would love to dedicate this to the fans this year,” Nettles said with a smile, while Bush nodded in agreement. The frontlady even used the pair’s few seconds of mic time to thank the state of Indiana, which became an integral part of the band’s history earlier this year.

Sugarland were at the forefront of a very newsworthy stage crash at the Indiana State Fair back in August, which resulted in multiple deaths, injuries and deep-rooted bad memories, especially for the band. Nettles added, “Thank you to the good folks of Indiana. Thank you to the fans. Thanks guys.”
