Does jennifer need either one of them - come on - 90% of the video focus on Jennifer - who is singing with Bon Jovi?

This is a no-brainer!

Jennifer Nettles is a soloist.

Have you guys read the official statement that Kristin finally gave about her reason for leaving.

Here's her statement, issued yesterday:
"The requirements of performing on the road do not allow time to focus on relationships with other writers and recording artists essential for me to do what I do best songwriting.
"That said, I am incredibly appreciative and indebted to (lead singer) Jennifer (Nettles) and Kristian (Bush) for all the hard work and talent they brought to this band, which has resulted in such great success for us all. We plan to support each other whole heartedly into the future."

They are so gonna miss her songs!!! GOod luck Kristin...

I am sure there is more to it then wanting to write. She says "the requirements of performing on the road".....Hello!!!! how long has she been in the music business??? she new the "requirements" of touring.
I think there is more to it - but they won't say.

I just heard about this. I was wondering why she wasn't at the grammys. I'm just heart sick over the whole thing.

sugarland, call me, I can sing harmonies and play guitar.

I have such admiration of Kristen Hall and her abilities - and this was long before she started with Sugarland. She has handled this situation with dignity. However, being Australian and not having the same ability to see her live (although my friends in US do keep me up to date) like most of you....I was very crestfallen when she didn't appear on the Grammy's.

Kristen, may your talents take you even further!

I think that Sugarland is still and will always be the hottest country music band because jennifer is a very talented singer and both Kristen and Kristain are good at commanding the stage and the love for Sugarland willl never end.

On the CD book Twice the speed of life says that most of the songs that Sugarland sings is written by all three of them and it obvious that they all have talent

Face it...the reason that she left is because she is fat...and she was forced out.

Name calling is childish, grow up. Kristen has a lot of talent and I hope all of their careers continue to prosper.

I think this forum maybe over and you may not check it but just in case you do it's not because she's a fat lesbian bull dyke (stupid comment by the way) It's because she has an issue with crowds.

Kristen is one of the most genuine and authentic people I have ever encountered in the music business. She has always written for the right reasons. Her fine songwriting is an outgrowth of who she is as a person. She genuinely does not like living on the road. Heck, who does? One thing I know for sure, she's not the type of person to call other people cruel, childish names.

Kristen was not forced out because she is a lesbian, she decided to leave on her own. And for the record, please stop calling her fat, that is really rude.

will you please stop critizing poor Kristen? You are being very rude and she does not deserve the nasty comments and the name calling. I had the privelige of meeting Sugarland 2 months before Kristen left and it really makes me angry to see you throwing around nasty rumors and crud that is not even true. I would appreciate it if you would think the next time before you post.

That's it, I have had enough of the negativity towards Kristen. It has got to stop. From day 1 when she left until now, the negativity has not quit. I am letting everyone on this board know that from here on out, any post that i feel is offensive i will flag immediately. That includes any reply to my posta as well. Got it? I have tried to be nice, but it has gone to far.

While I do agree that jen is the face and kristen wrote the material, i do not think that Jen needs her to succeed. I have plenty of faith that she could make it on her own. She had a great career prior to sugarland and if she does go solo, she will not need kristen's songs to make it.
