Sugarland booked tour dates as the opening act for Brad Paisley in 2005 and for Brooks & Dunn in 2006.
Their debut album continued to release hit after hit, with "Something More," and "Just Might Believe," receiving gold certifications in 2005.
The Sugarland concert schedule included a stint as the opening act for Kenny Chesney's "Flip Flop Summer Tour 2006," and a performance at the CMT Awards.
Following a massive tour, the group splintered, with both Nettles and Bush going on to release solo projects.
Nettles also launched an acting career, appearing on Broadway in Chicago and in the NBC Dolly Parton films Coat of Many Colors and Christmas of Many Colors.
The Sugarland concert schedule also included dates overseas in France, Germany, England, and Ireland and they visited various American military bases.
In the summer of 2010, the duo released their first single from their "The Incredible Machine" album, "Stuck Like Glue," to skepticism from the country music media.
