Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles Marries Boyfriend Justin Miller
Jennifer Nettles, 37, the lead singer of the country band, Sugarland, had a particularly festive Thanksgiving holiday. On Saturday, she married her boyfriend of two years, Justin Miller, in a quiet ceremony near the Tennessee Smoky Mountains.
The event was small and intimate, but included Sugarland band member Kristian Bush, according to People. Nettles took a page from the book of rapidly ascending fashion icon Kate Middleton and wore an elegant Alexander McQueen gown at the ceremony. Miller, a former model-turned-entrepreneur, first met Nettles when he appeared in the video to the 2006 Sugarland single, "Want To."
The duo won't be running off to honeymoon anytime soon, however. Sugarland will be performing with Lady Gaga at the Grammy Nomination Concert Live on Wednesday before Nettles has to rush off to host the CMA Country Christmas Special on Thursday. Set to perform on the Christmas special are last year's American Idol contenders Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, plus country crooners Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, and Rascal Flatts.
Though Nettles has reason to celebrate right now, she might be facing some troubles up ahead. Last week it was revealed that Sugarland is being sued over the collapse of an Indiana State Fair stage where they were scheduled to perform last August. The event, the result of bad weather and high winds, left seven people dead and over 40 injured, reports the L.A. Times. The lawsuit states that the band "had supervisory authority and discretion" over the concert, including the dimensions of the stage, and that they exhibited negligence in that they "failed or refused to cancel the Sugarland concert despite inclement weather."
In the meantime, you can catch the CMA Country Christmas Special Thursday at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.
