Sugarland - Green & Gold

Guest Author - Kathy Lyngholm

It is Christmas time and Sugarland has come out with their offering to their fans and I couldn’t resist buying the CD. This is not just a remake of the old standards, this is a combination of old standards and songs Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush co-wrote together.

City of Silver Dreams is a new song that Kristian and Jennifer wrote about New York City during the holidays seen thru the eyes of someone not used to the big city and missing the ways of the small town.

Winter Wonderland is an old standard redone in Sugarland style. The duo gives it makeover that will make it hard for you to keep from tapping your toes along to the beat.

Holly Jolly Christmas is one of the two songs that Kristian Bush took lead vocals to sing and did an amazing job. I hope to hear more of him taking the lead vocals on their non holiday music.

Coming Home has more of a r&b sound, but is still a great contribution to the album. As the title suggests it is about telling her family she’s on the way.

Gold & Green is the title single and is a combination of original material and some verses of The First Noel. It is a beautiful song and well done by Jennifer and Kristian. As the song says “everything looks better in gold & green”.

Maybe Baby New Years Day has Kristian Bush on lead vocals again and talks about maybe running into an old flame at one of the holiday parties that are planned in the old hometown. The man in the song is hoping to have News Years day with her since they didn’t have Christmas day.

Nuttin for Christmas has a bluegrass feel to the tempo, but is a cute song about a little girl not being good all year long and not getting anything for Christmas since she “can’t be anything but bad”. Tacks in chairs, making boys eating bugs, spilling ink on rugs and more lead to her thinking her Christmas won’t be very good.

O Come O Come Emmanuel features Jennifer taking on this ancient hymn, it is widely believed to either be from the 8th or 15th centuries.

Little Wooden Guitar is a song that could be about any artist that grew up dreaming of making it big in the music industry. It is a rememberance of one Christmas while the other kids got bikes and toys, this child got her wooden guitar.

Silent Night has Jennifer singing the old standard in both English and Spanish. Kristian chimes in to make his mark too. A good effort on a beautiful song.

While you usually hear Jennifer on most Sugarland CD's, this one is different because Kristian is lead vocals and shows that he can lead too. If you are a Sugarland fan, then this is a CD that is a must for your collection. If you want some new material for you Christmas music collection, this is one to consider.
