Guitarist & Vocalist | Sugarland
Kristian Bush is an American folk rock and country musician. From 1990 to 2001, Kristian was a member of the folk rock duo Billy Pilgrim along with Andrew Hyra. After leaving Billy Pilgrim, Bush joined Jennifer Nettles and Kristen Hall in the group Sugarland as background vocalist and guitarist.
To hear Jennifer Nettles tell it, it's a brand new day in Sugarland. Despite winning multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards - and selling more than 8 million records - the country-music duo of Nettles and Kristian Bush is embracing a creative rebirth, a musical awakening that permeates their adventurous fourth album, The Incredible Machine.
And what they've created is a dynamic masterwork. Co-written and co-produced in full by Jennifer and Kristian, The Incredible Machine is a soaring album elevated by sky-high choruses, ringing guitars, and pulsing drums that recall the beating of the album's titular engine, the human heart. Kristian describes it as a collection of anthems - and there may be no greater understatement. If the duo was searching for the grander side of country on their last record, the double platinum Love on the Inside, they've obviously found it on The Incredible Machine.
