Jennifer Nettles reinterprets American Songbook Classics

“As a child who grew up in musical theatre, this album feels like a homecoming to me. I savoured every note”

GRAMMY® Award winning singer-songwriter Jennifer Nettles forged her reputation in the renowned country duo Sugarland, while adding to her country kudos by portraying Dolly Parton’s mother in several TV movies.

She crossed genres by duetting with Bon Jovi on Who Says You Can’t Go Home, and now she’s ready to completely transcend country with Always Like New, a versatile album of American Songbook classics.
