Jennifer Nettles' first solo album was three years in the making, according to the singer, who will release the project, called That Girl, on January 14th. The album was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at the famous Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California.
Jennifer said, "I put no conscious guides or governors on the creation of this album other than to write songs that I want to sing. Working with Rick Rubin was a dream come true and the result is an album that plays to my roots – country, 70’s radio, gospel and singer songwriter.”
Ten of the 11 tracks on the album were written or co-written by Jennifer and include collaborations with songwriters Butch Walker, Little Big Town's Phillip Sweet, Richard Marx and Sara Bareilles, among others.
Jennifer also co-wrote the album's title track, which is her current single. Here is the video!

Garth Brooks will release a four-CD boxed set in time for the Christmas holiday. Blame it All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences will be available exclusively at Walmart on November 19th.
Much like with his recent shows at the Encore Theater in Las Vegas, the CD features Garth singing covers of 40 songs from artists who have influenced him throughout his career, including James Taylor, Gladys Knight, Jerry Lee Lewis and Otis Redding, among others.
Each of the four discs feature 10 songs from a certain genre -- "Country Classics," "Classic Rock," "Blue Eyed Soul," and "Melting Pot."
Trisha Yearwood lends her voice to several of the recordings. She is also featured in a duet of "After the Fire is Gone," which was originally recorded by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn.
Garth will promote Blame It All On My Roots with his upcoming CBS special, Garth Brooks Live From Las Vegas, set to air on November 29th. The show was taped during Garth's final performance of his one-man show at the Wynn Las Vegas.
Have you seen the beautiful wedding shots in Zac Brown Band's "Sweet Annie" video? Well those are real-life wedding video snippets from a real-life wedding!
Yeah, that's video from when ZBB guitarist Coy Bowles got married to his wife, Kylie.
Coy tells the Taste of Country website that there was a ton of planning that went into the wedding, just like any wedding.
Coy said his wife was going for a gypsy fantasy-land vibe. And from the video, looks like she nailed it!
Of course, the best part of the video is when the bride -- in her wedding dress -- hits a giant homemade slip-and-slide.
Thanks to our friends at WMDT. Here we are on their noon news with Lenita, recapping the CMAs.
