In Your Hands: Mt. Pleasant, MI August 5

Sun, Aug 5, 2012 at 2:51 PM

Last night's show in Mt. Pleasant had a funky, different vibe and you all seemed to love it! Thanks for bringing some of the most heart and soul we've seen in awhile, we wouldn't have had it any other way!

Jennifer and Kristian started the night out in chairs facing the audience, wearing sunglasses on their faces, and creating an overall jazzy, bluesy "dinner for two" kind of atmosphere. This made way for an intimate, magical night between Jennifer, Kristian and each one of you.

The show kicked off with "Stuck Like Glue" and you all couldn't have seemed more amped! Jennifer felt like a rockstar with her sunglasses on and guitar at her side. This rockstar feel combined with a low key vibe had Jennifer admitting to you all, "Today I am having one of those challenging days. I hear when you have those days things such as laughter and movement are bad. So instead of canceling I am going to sit my preggo ass down and rock from the top up.... There is a lot more going on up here then there is down there anyway!"

And boy was she right! The vocals were right on cue, the energy was uplifting, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Your requests were some of our favorite parts of the show as well! During the request "Fly Away" the wind was blowing and the sun was setting in the background creating the most picturesque image.

"Little Miss" was another one of the songs voted on for last night, and Jennifer and Kristian were thrilled to bring it to the stage. The song was dedicated to Erica Bjork. Jennifer asked to the audience, "Erica are you here, honey? Where are you? Oh, hi!!" That should give you an idea of just how intimate this show was!

Some of the signs we were most excited about included one that said, "If you're happy and you know it 'Stand Up'!" Another one asked "Who's your favorite sinner?" Kristian guiltily raised his hand, and Jennifer decided to do 'Genevieve' "churchified."

One of the most thrilling parts of last night's show came from the "Sing With Sugarland" winner who brought a crazy amount of energy to the stage. Before the song even began Tammy was laughing, crying, and giggling. That's the kind of effect this tour can have! When walking onstage Tammy through off her shoes and sang the entire song barefoot. Now that's some spunk!

Jennifer ended the night graciously saying to you all, "Thank you! This was a first for us...Playing like this. We appreciate and love you and hope to be back again soon!" We couldn't have asked for a better audience for last night's show, Mt. Pleasant. You truly outdid yourself! We'll promise to be back as soon as the wind brings us your way.

    Had a great time at the show - even from the back row, we could feel the love! As a mom and a singer, I can only imagine what a bad pregnancy day Jennifer was having to consider cancelling. We are all touched that you pushed through. You sounded amazing - we never would have know (other than the stool)! The crowd was wonderful as well. My partner and I were surprised by the amount of "family." Thank you for sharing your talents with us. From the opening acts to the closing number, we had a blast!

    I had a wonderful weekend spent with Sugarland. From Cincy, to Detroit, and ending in Mt. Awesome. This show was a great ending to 3 back to back nights of incredible-ness! The raw and realness of this performance was one of a kind, and it reminds me of where you started out, and how I fell in love with your music in the first place!! Thank you for spreading the love, even in challenging times! Special shout out to Annie, you Rock! Thanks for connecting with me and posing for pictures!!

    Before leaving the concert, a security guard gave my daughter a bag and said it was from jennifer and kristian. Her mouth dropped. Lol Onthe way home she opened it up to find a large sugarland 2012 tour poster, 2blank posters and a marker where she coukd make her own posters, and a sugarland 2012 t-shirt. That was sooo great! She wanted a t-shirt but didnt get one too. She is still living in it now. She has no voice from singing and yelling at the concert but has alot of great stuff to show why. Lol thanks everyone out there for helping my little girl to have a new favorite moment in life!!!

    My 7 yr old daughter and I had a TERRIFIC time at the soaring eagle concert. She made a cool sign that asked jennifer and kristian to let her come on stage and sing a song with them. Didnt work but cant blame a lil girl for trying. Lol Jennifer made her feel sooo special when she pointed at her and sang to her in the audience a bit. We met some great new friends.....also sugarcubes. My daughter ended up with a sugarland guitar pick from one of them. And had fun singing with another. We were sooo close to the stage. It was sooo cool to feel like such a big part of the concert. Thankyou sugarland for making us feel special.

    I have been to a total of 7 Sugarland concerts! This was my 4th one this year and even though they weren't up and dancing like they normally are this concert was my favorite hands down! It was almost like sitting down with them chatting it up! It felt so much more personal. They seemed to notice the crowd a lot more(they always notice things in the crowd) but it was like they had extra time to just look out into the crowd! Also, the talent that the two of you have was really show cased last night! Lots of performers would have cancelled but y'all came onstage, sat down, and just sang! And yalls voices are so amazing! What an amazing show! Jennifer pointed out my license plate again too :) See y'all in Vegas!
