We could never pick a favorite artist here at #CMchat, but if I (Scotty) had to pick a top 10, Kristian Bush would definitely be at the top of that list! You probably know him for his Sugarland past, but with the duo plans on hold, you should learn just who Kristian Bush is.
He began his professional career as a member of folk rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the 90’s. With a few songs on Adult Alternative radio, the duo went on to open for the likes of Melissa Etheridge. By 2002, Kristian was starting a new venture as a founding member of Sugarland. Selling 20 million albums, and countless awards in his curio cabinet Kristian began working behind the scenes. His songs have appeared on albums by Jaida Dreyer, Matt Nathanson, the DBs, and others. Every #MusicMonday, he releases his own song on KristianBush.com. With a songbook way more than one a week, Kristian has also been in the studio working on an album expected later this year. He’s testing out some new music for the fans on tour now!
A few months ago he teased us with this tour promo:
Well, he’s been rocking in venues across the country and the tour continues for a few months. If you are thinking about heading out, look at what you can expect. It’s a mix of old, new, classics, and just a rocking good time! I’m trying to finalize plans to make it to a date – you might want to check out the dates below and do the same.
