My family was in the music business, it can be very demanding...and we only had a christian group. I think why Kristen left was a combination of all the reason she gave us fans. Including the unofficial reason,her weight. Image was hard in the Christian genre..just imagine how hard it must be on a person in other genres.

the lawsuit isn't crap. if she wrote the song isn't she entitled to a small percentage of sales. I think she should get at least something, epescailly if she had written songs of the newest albums of sugarland.

We should have seen this coming. I was all about the image of the band and marketing. Just watch the Crossroads show with Bon Jovi. I can't even tell you if Kristen was even there. I'm actually surprised that Christian is still with the band. The only reason he even got on camera was because he found them and would run in front of them. Eventually Nettles will be on her own because she is the most marketable. Nothing to do with the talent of the other members of the band. If Kristen's talent is songwriting, then she deserves her royalties for her work.

I love the comment from rachel:
"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".
We are so scared!!!!

Listen - Nettles is/was married to Todd Ownens - owner of Eddie's Attic in Decatur (pronounced "Dick-hater") Ga. So it's not like Jen's not used to being around lesbians - come on! Kristen Hall was a much more well-known name in indie-ATL music - even as far back as the early 90s. Plus, all you have to do is listen to some Soul Miner's Daughter's songs to realize Jennifer's writing abilities. I personally think she's dumbing down with all this country stuff & the "twang"
No, Jennifer was married to Todd Van Sickle. Eddie Owen was the originally owner of the attic who now manages it for the new owner.

Jennifer won't be going away no matter what happens to what's his name or the queer woman. She's got one of the best country voices of the past 20 years. There are a billion great songs written every year. Having a gay butch tagging along because she can write too is just deadwieght.
Oh, you narrow-minded HATER! Well, you live in Statesboro, Georgia, so I really can't expect anything better from you.

Jennifer is pretty woman and a GREAT singer. Let's be for real Kristen Hall may have wrote some songs, but... do Jennifer and Kristian Bush really need an old looking ugly sidekick?? Come on look at the success since the first CD. This Kristen is mad because she was just useless waste that got kicked to the curb. And Genesis would nerver survive without Peter Gabriel

kristen is a great songwriter and will do great with whoever she work with, but to all you stupid ppl calling her fat she may be over weight but she's got more talent I'm sure than you will EVER have apparently, nd has much more class than the ignorant idiots who call her fat, here's the deal for those ppl WHAT HAVE YOU DONE interesting in your life besides being extremely jealous of a big girl who has more talent in her pinky finger than yu have in your whole existence, maybe gaining a little weight will help yu be a better person.
