In Your Hands: Harrington, DE July 21

Sat, Jul 21, 2012 at 7:52 PM

The In Your Hands tour is back in action, and boy did we start out with a bang! It almost took us by surprise that any city could have that much energy – in lieu of the weather, but Harrington you sure showed us that rain or shine you were there to have the night of your life!

Remember when "Tonight" played? That song has been one of our favorites to play over the past year, and last night's experience confirmed why we love it! People were chanting during the song and an American flag hovered over all of you creating the most beautiful picture-perfect image.

Before the show even started we had the immense pleasure of meeting the Governor and his family last night and realized just where you all get that welcoming Delaware attitude. What a treat!

The signs were brought back out last night, and oh how we've missed your requests! Jennifer of course chose the brightly colored one that requested "Fly Away". She admitted why this was chosen saying, "I'm like a raccoon, I'm attracted to shiny things!"

Another song that was chosen from the crowd was one from an earlier CD and Jennifer exclaimed, "Thanks for taking us back in time Delaware!" A few choice honorable mentions should be given to the sign with batteries and another poster announcing that a couple was newlyweds. We're glad you chose a Sugarland concert to help start out your life together!

The "Sing With Sugarland" winner was adorable Katie O'Brien, 15, who came on stage wearing a dress spun of In Your Hands colors. Katie may have been 15, but she already knows how to work a crowd! Jennifer asked her, "Katie how old are you, Do you have a boyfriend?, No? Oh- well you have sparkly nails and I like them!" Never quite know what she'll say, do we?

Couldn't have had a more perfect night to put us back on the road. Thank you, Delaware, for showing us some love and keeping it real! We'll be back one day, Harrington!

    I had so much fun at the Sugarland concert. Thank you for making the night amazing. My friend and I made the Every Girl Like Me poster that you said looked like a "science project". We were so excited that you liked it. You're reaction to it really had us laughing. Its even in the picture with you on stage in this blog!! yay!! I was in the pit and we were rocking out the whole night! Sorry to hear about the people in the seats being duds. Please do the poster competition in your next concert series. Its a really cool way for the crowd to interact with you and each other. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Are you going to make a lullaby album? Oh- and Canaan Smith's entire band is amazingly hot. Yummy :)

    Again...another awesome show you guys! Tell Annie she is hot! Jennifer, you were just glowing more than usual...that cute little bump must have something to do with it...LOL...wish you and your husband the best! We hope you enjoyed the pictures we posted on our poster...because of you we are "Stuck Like Glue!" Our first date was your concert in Camden, NJ in May 2010. We headed to Philadelphia in the city for dinner first and we were so involved with conversation that we were late for the concert! We only heard your last two songs of the night...I was soooo bummed and he felt sooooo bad..he looked up your next concert in our area and surprised me with tickets to Montague PA in July 2010...I guess he thought he better do something if he expected date #2! We have seen you guys 4 other times since then and we will continue the tradition every year! I first saw you in with Kenny Chesney in 2007 and fell in love with Sugarland! I even had a tattoo put on my back 3 years ago with the trademark symbol of a heart with wings! We cannot wait to see you guys next dream would be to meet you guys in person on day!! Have a successful and safe tour and take good care of that "Sugar Baby!"

    Sherry & Carl

    PS We met a young couple in the pit and it was there first date...I hope they have a happy ending like we did!

    PSS Not sure where the fans were sitting that commented about the crowd being a dud, but the pit was rocking!

    ok, try this again! lol I agree w/lomartin33 - tonight was my first time seeing Sugarland in person and I loved it!! You really connect with the audience - reading the signs, giving away the signed guitar, bringing up radio contest winner to sing.... Thanks for a great show! =) P.S. Oh, and Jennifer, you're baby bump is adorable!

    All I can say is WOW! What an awesome show and interaction with the fans last night! We saw Sugarland for the first time a few years back in London Ontario and we have been addicted ever since. God Bless you guys, your music is so inspirational and brightens my day everytime I hear one of your songs....

    First time I've been to a Sugarland concert and it was by far the best so far! The way Jennifer was dancing around pregnant and the excitement from her Duets win made the night even better. The rain definitely did not stop the way we all connected through the great power of country music. I'm proud to call myself a country music and Sugarland fan because of the way we all can come together and have a great time, no matter the venue, or the weather. Please come visit us again soon because we loved having you in our little state!
