Sugarland News Roundup: CMA wrapup, Chicago gig photos, and more TV appearances than you can shake an elf at

Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 10:10 AM

News you can use:

We had a blast at the 44th Annual CMA Awards, both performing "Stuck Like Glue" on the telecast (watch it here), and being honored as the 2010 CMA Vocal Duo of the Year. As Jennifer and Kristian put it in their post-show tweet, "Wonderful. So grateful."

But it's hard to imagine anyone had more fun at this year's CMAs than Kellie Pickler, who was on the scene reporting for Sugarland Ambassador Ellen DeGeneres. You can check out her hilarious interview (that term used verrrry loosely) with Jennifer, Kristian, and Gwyneth Paltrow at the bottom of this post, and learn about motorboating. No, the other kind of motorboating. No, the other kind.

Last night, Jennifer and Kristian taped CMA Country Christmas with Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire, Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, and a bunch of other friends in Nashville -- it's Ms. Nettles' first hosting gig! The show will air on ABC Nov. 29. AOL's The Boot has a report on the taping, and you can view a bunch of pictures from the night right here. And of course, let's not forget this shot of Kristian and the friends he made backstage. 

We'd also like to thank everyone who turned out last week for our club gig at Joe's Bar in Chicago, presented by our friends at US99.5. They've got some great pictures from the show on their website, and if you haven't already seen it, be sure to watch this J&K interview (also hilarious) with US99.5 host Marci Braun

We still need your votes! GAC is choosing the Top 50 videos of 2010, and "Stuck Like Glue" is in contention. You can vote once a day on their website, and as a reward, you can enter to win $5000 in cash and a trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

And finally, you already know about our upcoming appearances on CNN Heroes (Thanksgiving), the CMA Country Christmas show (Nov. 29), and VH1 Divas Salute the Troops (Dec. 5) -- but we're thrilled to announce Jennifer will also be a guest on The Nate Berkus Show next Friday, Nov. 19. Check local listings!

That's it for this busy week in Sugarland. Here's the Ellen/Kellie Pickler video. Do yourself a favor and watch the rest of Ms. Pickler's intrepid journalism from the CMA black carpet, if you've got time. She is the very definition of a hoot. Much like the owl who lives in her backyard. The owl she apparently has long conversations with. And then tells Rascal Flatts about it

    I have watched this video several times now and I laugh every time. I don't know who gets me first. Poor Gwyneth, she wasn't sure what was going on with Kellie. Motorboating, lol. My mind was totally where Kellie was going with...that is a "whole different show sister!"
