Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Texas' Own Jack Ingram Support a Worthy Cause

January 3, 2011

Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Jennifer Nettles—also known as one-half of multi-platinum country duo Sugarland—will perform a rare, intimate solo show at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas on January 15, 2011, to benefit Attic Community Playground, a non-profit organization supporting the performing arts.
“Attic Community Playground is one of my dearest charities,” Nettles says. “Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama—each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence.”
Proceeds from the show will go to the Ponder High School Band and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas, and the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia—a suburb of Nettles’s adopted hometown of Atlanta.
2008 ACM Best New Male Vocalist (and native Texan) Jack Ingram will open the show, which Nettles promises “should be a night of banter, music and, of course, fun for a good cause.”
