Jennifer Nettles

Jennifer Nettles has become one of the most popular singer-songwriters in music today.

As the lead vocalist for Sugarland, the group achieved eight No. 1 singles and won numerous Grammys and country music awards. Nettles has won five ASCAP awards for her songwriting abilities, and individually received a Grammy, ACM and CMA for penning the emotionally charged, platinum-selling No. 1 hit “Stay.”

She also won the coveted “Crystal Milestone Award” for being the first woman since 1972 to be the solo songwriter on an ACM “Song of the Year.”

In 2014, Nettles enlisted the help of esteemed producer Rick Rubin to release her highly anticipated debut solo album “That Girl,” which went to No. 1 on the country charts. She also has taken her stardom to Broadway, in the role of Roxy Hart in “Chicago.”

Also performing Nov. 14 at the Lerner Theatre will be Brandy Clark and Ryan Kinder. Now a Grammy-nominated performer in her own right, Clark won a 2014 CMA Award for writing Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow.” She also received nominations in the same category for “Mama’s Broken Heart” by Miranda Lambert and “Better Dig Two” by The Band Perry.
