EPISODE 70: BMI Songwriters Special Part 1. Kristian Merrill Bush (born March 14, 1970 in Knoxville, TN) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Bush is one half of the country music duo Sugarland with Jennifer Nettles, and was a member of the folk rock duo Billy Pilgrim with Andrew Hyra. In addition to his work in these two groups, Bush has released one solo album, Southern Gravity, via Streamsound Records in 2015. Bush co-founded Sugarland in 2002, signed with Mercury Records Nashville in 2004, and exploded onto the country music scene. They have surpassed sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieved five No. 1 singles and won numerous awards, including trophies from the Grammys, American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, CMT Music Awards, CMA Awards and BMI. Kristian is returning with new album “52,” a 52-song collection sparked by his 52nd birthday that showcases his fresh, authentic sound and leans into his influences collected throughout his eclectic career. “I’ve been given the opportunity to reinvent myself many times,” Kristian said. “And, I’ve been grateful in every incarnation. Here comes another one.” kristianbush.com
