It’s no secret that Jennifer Nettles is one of the most talented and vivacious performers in all of country music, and when she teased a big announcement, speculation run rampant. While I had selfishly hoped she’d announce the reunion of Sugarland (sigh, not yet), she did appear on NBC’s Today Show with other exciting news. She’ll be heading to New York City for a stint on Broadway, playing the role of Roxie Hart in the long-running revival of Chicago. Nettles will appear from February 2, 2015 through March 29 at the Ambassador Theatre.
Nettles recently wowed us with a performance of “Let It Go” with Idina Menzel that proved she could easily hold her own alongside Broadway’s finest. “Nobody phones it in on Broadway,” she told the The Today Show, “You gotta bring it!”
It’s safe to say she’s a wee bit excited.
Freak out, scream face excited! @ChicagoMusical ahhhhhhhh! Hallelujah now we can talk about it!!!

She received well-wishes from Sugarland partner, Kristian Bush, making my Sugar-lovin’ heart go pitter-patter.
