Nashville, TN – July 22, 2014 – Country star Kristian Bush made
his solo debut at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night (7/18). The
country singer, also known as one-half of Platinum-selling duo
Sugarland, stepped up to the microphone and took the opportunity to
introduce his voice and new material to the live audience.
“I feel so grateful, to the Opry for inviting me, to the audience
who heard me use my voice, and to my brother for joining me in both
writing this song and performing it on such a hallowed stage. It was an
amazing experience, like a roller coaster I want to get back on,” said

Bush performed his new single “Trailer
Hitch,” an infectious song that carries the underlying message of
enjoying the gift of giving back over the desire for material things.
Already available for pre-order on iTunes,
“Trailer Hitch” is set to hit Country radio nationwide on July 28. He
also treated the packed crowd to the tune “Southern Gravity,” his own
love song to the South. Both songs will be featured on Bush’s upcoming
debut solo album for which he is collaborating with longtime producer
Byron Gallimore to be released on Streamsound Records.
Bush has been leaving his mark on
music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and
multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk rock duo Billy
Pilgrim in the early ’90s, releasing a much-lauded pair of albums for
Atlantic Records (self-titled debut and BLOOM). In 2004, he
exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales
of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and
winning numerous awards, including Grammys, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards
and CMAs. To date, Bush garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting,
and in 2011 founded the music publishing company and songwriting
collective Songs of the Architect. Recent producing/songwriting
collaborations include Mike Elizondo, Rita Wilson, Dia Frampton, Ellis
Paul, Matt Nathanson, the dB’s, Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, and up-and-comers including Larkin Poe, Natalie Stovall, Canaan Smith, Jaida Dreyer, Alana Springsteen, and The Voice contestant Savannah Berry.
