Jennifer Nettles to Release Debut Solo Album this Fall

Dana TynanSugarland's Jennifer Nettles has announced plans to release her debut solo album this fall. She's working with producer Rick Rubin, who has been in the studio with everyone from Johnny Cash to Jay-Z.

Jennifer says, "I am absolutely thrilled and wholly proud to be working with Rick. If you ask any musician who is on their producer ‘bucket list,’ Rick would be on each and every one."

Sugarland's last album, The Incredible Machine, was released in 2010. Jennifer gave birth to her son, Magnus Hamilton, last December.

For now, it seems Jennifer and her Sugarland duo partner, Kristian Bush, are taking some time apart to work on outside projects, though a rep for Sugarland's record label tells ABC News Radio the duo has not broken up. You can keep up with Jennifer at, and the latest on Kristian will be posted at
