The reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Duo of the Year Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland will world premiere their smoldering new video for their just released single “Tonight” on iTunes today, Tuesday, April 19 . Check it out by clicking HERE.
AOL will begin streaming “Tonight” on Thursday, April 21.
The video, directed by Marcus Raboy (Santana, Mary J. Blige, Avril Lavigne), plays like a striking fashion editorial spread with a variety of lighting and wardrobe looks that heighten the emotions and style of the performances of both Nettles and Bush. Raboy chose the old Woolworth mansion in New York City as the location of the shoot to add further dramatic flavor.
“We were inspired in writing this song by the emotional longing we heard in the soundtracks
of iconic 80’s movies like the Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Say Anything,” said Sugarland’s Kristian Bush. “The feeling of being so in love that you would trade everything for just one day with that someone.”
The reaction the duo is getting to the song on The Incredible Machine Tour has been has been a big part in the success of their album of the same name. “This song is an event every night we play it,” Bush said. “When Jennifer gets to the first big ‘Always’ and holds it forever, and the band finally kicks in, and the electric guitars rumble to life under her note, it really turns the room into a stadium. I love how the audience start to cheer and scream and how that energy carries us and the song to a new place. It makes a man want to play guitar!”
Sugarland is currently on their 2011 The Incredible Machine Tour. Last year’s The Incredible Machine Tour was one of Pollstar’s Top 50 North American Tours of 2010 and has been described as “stunning,” “fantastically fun” and “not one to be missed.”
