Sugarland is one of the most successful country music groups in history, and was one of the most-played groups on pop and country radio over the 2000s. The band originally featured Jennifer Nettles, Kristian Bush and Kristen Hall, who joined together in 2002, but after three years Hall left the group and Sugarland became one of the most notable duos in country music. The band's first full-length album, Twice the Speed of Life, would prove to be a breakout hit that netted them the No. 16 spot on the Billboard 200 charts. Riding the success of the single "Baby Girl/Stand Back Up," Sugarland presented a fresh take on contemporary country music and began to recruit many new fans.
The band's second album, Enjoy the Ride, became the group's first runaway success and climbed to No. 4 on the charts. The singles "Want To" and "Settlin'" both reached No. 1 on the country music charts and the album reached multi-platinum status. While Hall left the group shortly after the release of the record, Sugarland was able to refine their sound as a duo. With their first two albums as a duo reaching No. 1 on the Billboard charts and Grammy Awards following, Sugarland is one of country music's biggest successes of this century.
