Overview

Enjoy the Ride

Seems like Sugarland's powerhouse lead singer, Jennifer Nettles, got more out of her one-off collaboration with Jon Bon Jovi than a No. 1 country single ("Who Says You Can't Go Home"). Enjoy the Ride, the now-duo's second album (original third member Kristen Hall parted ways with her mates earlier this year), kicks off with a Who-derived keyboard figure on "Settlin'," which opens up into a guitar-driven, hard-edged country rocker about shooting for the stars instead of accepting the status quo. Co-produced by Nettles, her Sugarland mate Kristian Bush, and Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw's longtime producer and a man who knows how to put some rock 'n' roll thrust into a country song), this disc finds Sugarland offering a fierce, fresh approach that rocks harder than the group's double-platinum 2004 debut, Twice the Speed of Life. But as long as Nettles is applying her reedy Georgia twang to a lyric, it's gonna come out country. So it does, and impressively to boot. Staying put in a small town and celebrating past glories may sound stultifying to some, but in the jubilant romp "Everyday America," Nettles sounds positively ecstatic in singing the praises of the fulfillment such a life can offer. A young couple making new memories in the face of economic adversity is the topical theme of the richly textured observation "These Are the Days," driven by Bush's forcefully strummed mandolin, a lilting tempo, and an invigorating contrast between Nettles's throaty vocal and Bush's gritty, bluesy readings on alternate verses. For sheer, heart-tugging beauty, "April Showers" hits all the right emotional chords, thanks to Nettles's measured approach and the atmospheric instrumental shadowing of pedal steel and fiddle. Enjoy the ride? Many times over.

For a gal who does not like country I've got two Sugarland cds. I love, love, love "Stay". But the rest of the cd - I can skip it.
