When Jennifer Nettles rhymes “a little kiss of freedom” with “a little room for breathin'” in her song “Me Without You,” context tells us she's singing about the relief that accompanies the end of a troubled romantic relationship. On her first solo album, though, the frontwoman of Sugarland might also be describing her escape from a country-music establishment that didn't always appreciate her quirks. In 2010, for instance, at least a few radio stations took it on themselves to create an unauthorized edit of Sugarland's song “ Stuck Like Glue ” that did away with a verse in which Nettles raps in a faux-Jamaican patois.

Thanksgiving isn't just for stuffing your face with turkey, watching Charlie Brown on TV and then splurging on electronics at Black Friday sales. The holiday also launches the season of TV holiday specials anchored by musicians. Lady Gaga will sing alongside the Muppets for a sure-to-be bombastic Thanksgiving night special, and in December, Kelly Clarkson and Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles will host holiday specials of their own. But viewers wanting a bit more soul in their season can opt for Mary J. Blige's special, scheduled for Thanksgiving night on Sean “Diddy” Combs' recently launched Revolt network.

A founder of the country band Sugarland is suing the two current members of the popular group for $1.5 million. According to a lawsuit filed late last month in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, Kristen Hall was to get a cut of the group's profits even after she left in 2005 for a solo career. The lawsuit says Hall, who founded the band in 2002, has an agreement with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush to equally share profits and losses. Hall says in the lawsuit that she has been excluded from the group's profits since she left.
