Transcript for Jennifer Nettles: Acclaimed Country Artist Goes Solo
country music superstar, jennifer nettles, joining us. One half of sugarland. Going solo. Her first solo album is called "that girl." And I love that name. We're going to hear the first singling off the album in a minute. First, want to catch up with you. It's been a while. It's been a while. What made you decide to venture solo? And what's the feel? It's something I've been wanting to do for quite a while. Been writing about three years and steering my ship in that direction. I wanted to do something that sounded different, that allowed my fans to see something more personal and intimate. This is big. Rick ruben produced this. Kind of big. Jay z, among many others he has worked with. What was that experience like? And what did he pull out of you that's different? It's lib ratting. It was really liberating to work with him. It was a wonderful exercise to trust somebody that's capable and vulnerable at the same time for me. A song writer, saying what is your vision? It was a wonderful exercise that way. And he's brilliant at choosing players and at guiding the sessions. Yeah. So excited to hear the whole album. I can't wait for you to hear it. It comes out in january. The single "that girl" is out now. I want to hear you sing. And congratulations on 8-month-old little magnus. He's so precious. I'll bet motherhood, we'll hear some of that come out in that. You'll hear some of that, on the album. Not in this song. But on the album, you'll hear it, for sure.
