Sugarland’s Nettles Lines Up Solo Gig For Good Cause

Jennifer Nettles lands in Texas later this month for a solo headline show benefiting one of her favorite charities.

The Sugarland singer appears Jan. 15 in Denton, Texas, at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in a benefit for non-profit Attic Community Playground, which works to support the arts. Proceeds from the show will go to the Ponder High School Band and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas, and to the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia.

“Attic Community Playground is one of my dearest charities,” Nettles said. “Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama – each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence.”
