In Your Hands: Rancho Mirage, CA May 25

Fri, May 25, 2012 at 11:00 PM

The crowd's mood was as bright as the hot pink pants Jennifer wore last night in Rancho Mirage! The show had a great vibe and our friends spent the night on their feet dancing and singing along.  


Special guests J Rome and John from Duets watched from the sidelines and they were just as excited to be there as the folks in the crowd. When J. Rome sang "Tonight," the entire crowd was standing and screaming.  And when John sang "Stay," his soulful voice shook the house.  


Allie Granberry was the second sign picked with a request for "Little Miss" dedicated to her mom, Sharon Lee. Allie was so excited she could barely breathe, and Jennifer said that it was fans like Allie that made the show fun for her. Allie called her Mom on stage while she and Jennifer sang. And even though her eyes were filled with tears, she had a huge smile on her face. Kristian brought her water when she got a little choke up, and everyone high-fived her when she left the stage. It was a night to remember for Allie – and for everyone in Rancho Mirage.


Eleven-year-old Nicholas Lee from Arizona came up to sing and dance to "Everyday America." And Heather Linden was in the crowd when Kristian and Jennifer dedicated "Already Gone" to her. She was sitting in floor seats and when Kristian and Jennifer pointed to her, she asked them to give a shout out to her parents at the back of the venue. "Your parents sacrificed so you could sit this close? Well, we'll play this song for you and them!" Jennifer said.


From the amazing signs to the amazing people at the concert, the entire night couldn't have been any better. The synergy of the crowd made the concert one that we'll never forget. We can't wait to see what the Sugarpeeps come up with in Phoenix, Arizona! See you there!

    Dear Sugarland, the Band and all the Dedicated fans out there,
    I have now attended three Sugar Concerts and each time they continue to Blow me away. I was front and center tonight with my giant banner in row H. My face book friend Allie got called on stage and I was beyond excited for her a few song later they asked if Heather Linden was in the audience couldnt believe it and I had to include my parents in the moment. They got such a kick outta this which made for a incredible evening. Thank you Jennifer and Kristen the song you played for me Already Gone is so close to me and my Mom for so many reasons. Iam honered to part of the set list. The music has always just spoken to my heart the lyrics and the intruments . My dad introduced me to sugarland in 2008. It was the Love on the Inside album that first grabbed my heart, that year I got married, to a mighty good man, my dad wa glked me down the isle to one of our best friends playing and singing come on get higher. It was trulely one of the most magical days of my life. Since that time I have collected every piece of music from Sugarland I could get my hands hands on and feel in love with every song. Every person close to me has a sugar song Twice the speed of life for my daughter, Baby Girl for my Daddy, Already Gone for my Mama, All I wanna Do for my wonderful husband, and Shine the Light for my Brother actually I think I could probably just dedicate the whole incredible machine to him. I just wanted to take a minute to explain what sugarland has meant to me in these last five years. You have encourged hope strength and love. Thanks Again for the wonderful music and a wonderful show. I will try to make it Irvine next weekend. Sugar Love H
    PS. Jennifer I loved the pants!!!!

    In recovery mode from the Rancho Mirage show. So thankful for the great seats for myself and 4 friends from my high school days. Scoring tickets in the 2nd row center, I forewarned those behind me I would not be sitting down - which I did not despite my broken foot! Those behind me were cool and did not give me any issues with standing. This venue was very cool, but you could tell that many were "given tix" from the casino, as they did not look like Sugarland die-hards. I printed a copy of the photo from my Meet & Greet at the Greek and took a chance that it would get signed. At the encore, as no one in the front row center were standing I just hobbled my way to the front and center spot & again no issues from the people behind. Got to hear my total favorite song as the encore "Sugarland", and Jennifer and Kristian signed without hesitation. As the show ended I pulled up Jennifer's taped set list and to my surprise I was listed on there for online request for "All I Wanna Do". This show concept is awesome and they really work hard for their fans! We had an amazing time and can't wait for Irvine. No pit for me this time, Greek was way too much for me to handle, so in the seats for this one.
