Jenifer Nettles should be familiar to you all. The frontwoman of Sugarland, responsible for 30 million records sold, Jennifer has been a country radio staple for over 20 years. She is also an actress having been cast in HBO's The Righteous Gemstones and the 2019 Focus Features film release of the Harriet Tubman Biopic. Jennifer also debuted on Broadway in 2015 as Roxy Hart in the Tony Award winning and record-breaking musical Chicago and she is currently a judge on the TBS reality talent competition Go Big. With multiple Grammys to her credit as well as ACM and CMA awards, she is a music industry institution but what this particular release will prove is her musical proclivities and skills are far wider and more diverse then perhaps previously thought. Jennifer is in fact a brilliant interpreter of songs.
The other outstanding presence on this record are the arrangements that stray across a very wide variety of styles and yet hew to a specific creative line. Ms. Nettle's collaborator on this project is Tony and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, whose credits include Hamilton (Music Director, Orchestrator, and Conductor) and Dear Evan Hanson (Music Supervisor). The arrangements on this record play a key role in creating a palette for Jennifer to make this rather unwieldy contemporary and classic repertoire truly her own.
