Look out! Jennifer Nettles, often referenced for her equal part in the country music duo Sugarland, has just jumped aboard as a judge on a promising, new singing competition called "American Supergroup". Nettles, posing as the representation for the lovable country music genre, will be judging alongside various other artists, such as the lead singer of the classic band Chicago and Dierks Bentley's former duet partner Elle King, the elegant addition to the heartbreak hit "Different For Girls".
This competition is intended to vividly showcase to the nation the best band that it has to offer, taking 25 finalists and divvying them up into 5 separate groups consisting of 5 members each. This competition varies from other classic singing competition series in that is requires the contestants to work in large groups and adhere to a variety of learning styles and musical methods.
Nettles has acquired quite the repetoire in the world of country music. Aside from her coveted friendship with the great Dolly Parton and other incredible musicians, Nettles' musical talent has continued to be heavily influenced by raw emotion, a technique that was showcased in both her former hit "Stay" and her newly released single, "Unlove You". She told iHeartRADIO about her tearjerking single saying,
"Oh, it's about your dog dying, and your car breaking down, and your wife leaving you, and all those things.' But the truth to that kernel of the stereotype is what country music does better, I think, than any other genre is it celebrates brokenness, and it celebrates realness in a way that I think others don't... So 'Unlove You' is about heartbreak, and is about feeling all the feels." Her single sent listeners to tears and secured her name in the musical headlines!
The show is set to air on MTV Live, MTV Classic and Pop and, although currently in the filming process in the iconic city of Nashville, the show will premiere Tuesday (Oct. 11) on Pop at 8PM ET, MTV Live on Thursday (Oct. 13) at 8PM ET, and on MTV Classic on Friday (Oct. 14) at 7PM ET.
