Country superstar to perform April 11 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. – Jennifer Nettles is best known as the lead singer of Sugarland, but this year she’s hitting the road for a solo tour that includes an April 11 concert at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

Tickets start at $65 and go on sale Feb. 13.

On Jan. 14, Nettles released her solo debut, “That Girl,” which debuted at No. 1 on the country charts and No. 5 on the Billboard 200. The 11-track album features 10 songs written or co-written by Nettles and the Bob Seger cover “Like a Rock.”

Since Sugarland exploded onto the music scene in 2004, they have worldwide sales of more than 22 million albums and singles, achieved eight No. 1 singles and won numerous awards, including trophies from the Grammys, AMAs, ACM Awards, CMT Music Awards and CMA Awards.

Nettles has won five ASCAP awards for her songwriting abilities and in 2008 individually received a Grammy Award, ACM Award and CMA Award for penning the emotionally charged, platinum-selling No. 1 hit “Stay.” At the 2009 ACM Awards, Nettles was honored with the “Crystal Milestone Award” for being the first woman to be the solo songwriter on an ACM “Song of the Year” winner since 1972.

Her fans have grown to expect Nettles to deliver memorable, heartfelt performances, both individually and with surprise duet partners.

At the 2007 AMAs, Beyonce joined Sugarland on stage for a countrified version of her hit single “Irreplaceable.” Two years later, at The Kennedy Center Honors, Nettles paid tribute to icon Bruce Springsteen, covering “Glory Days” and “I’m On Fire” with Ben Harper.
