KRISTIAN BUSH


BIO: Kristian Bush, one half of international super-duo Sugarland, has been leaving his mark on music for the past 22 years. Bush is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who started his career with folk rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early '90s. He and partner Andrew Hyra released a much-lauded pair of albums for Atlantic Records (their 1994 self-titled debut and 1995's Bloom), earning multiple Top 5 singles on the AAA charts, rotation on VH1 and a reputation as dynamic live performers who traveled from the tiny stage of Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia, to a worldwide tour supporting Melissa Etheridge in 1995. Bush began recording with partner Jennifer Nettles in 2002; in 2004, Sugarland exploded onto the music scene and haven’t stopped since. They have surpassed sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieved eight No. 1 singles and won numerous awards, including trophies from the Grammys, AMAs, ACM Awards, CMT Music Awards and CMA Awards. In October of 2012, they were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. To date, Bush has won six BMI Awards for his songwriting abilities, and in 2011 founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent producing/songwriting collaborations include Laura Bell Bundy, Matt Nathanson, the dB’s, Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, and up-and-comers including Canaan Smith, Lauren Alaina, Jaida Dreyer and Alana Springsteen. He is a frequent panelist and speaker at events for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and was recently honored as a distinguished alumni by his high school alma mater, Avon Old Farms. Bush is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, where he still resides.
