In Your Hands: West Palm Beach, FL July 29

Sun, Jul 29, 2012 at 8:15 PM

Hot diggity dog, West Palm! It was a scorching day in Florida, but that didn't stop you one bit. It only made for one big, warm welcome complete with palm trees standing high and confetti on the ground!

The show began with every audience member on their feet, and that of course got us amped for what was in store. Not only were you on your feet, but your vocals were all warmed up for us too! Jennifer even complimented everyone saying, "Thanks you guys, you sound so pretty!"

During "Everyday America" we brought 9-year-old Austin on stage from Jupiter, FL. He danced the song away as the rest of the crowd sang back and forth to friends and family. However, this song was just a warm-up for "We Run". The energy, jumping, singing, dancing, heel-clicking, and more almost blew us off the stage!

After these songs practically led by the fans, Jennifer decided to take things into her own hands and choose the song "Fly Away". Why this song? Jennifer said to the crowd, "Let's play a sign with feathers, I am a sucker for feathers."

Not only was this sign impressive, but a few others caught our eye. One with the song "We Run" had a picture of running shoes — Jennifer said it was "abstract art". Another had written on it, "You're the only sugar in my diet." Well isn't that sweet?

Towards the end our "Sing With Sugarland" winner, Brooke Eden, graced us with her presence. It's safe to say she was one of the best singers we've had so far! Not only was her voice in tune, but Jennifer also commented on her outfit saying "Well don’t you look cute!"

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to help make it such a memorable show, and a special thanks to Joe Burke who attended his 100th Sugarland show last night! We'll being seeing you again one day, West Palm!

    Jennifer and Kristian! I feel so HONORED to have been able to share your stage with you last night! You have no idea how much "Baby Girl" means in my life...I just moved to Nashville 4 months ago to pursue my music career and whenever I have a bad day and feel like it's never gonna happen, I turn up "Baby Girl" as loud as I can and BELIEVE that I can make it! Thank you so much for writing that song and sharing it with the world...y'all are such an inspiration to me! DREAMS COME TRUE, right?! Well one of mine did last night :).

    What an amazing time we had at your concert! Thank you so much for running a contest that allows fans to get on stage and sing with you. My daughter Brooke Eden had the time of her life. She is actually living the life of "Baby Girl" right now. Moved to Nashville in March to pursue her music. Writing and playing at Tootsies, Rippy's and Honky Tonk Central 3 weeks a month and then back to West Palm to play shows here for 3 weeks. Baby Girl is her anthem so when things go wrong she just sings that song at the top of her lungs! You 2 are her biggest inspiration. She covers many of your songs. It was truly a dream come true for her to be on that stage with you. Congratualtions on becoming a Mommy Jennifer, and know that when this baby is born you will really know the meaning of True Love. Thank You again and God Bless, Laurie Eden
