Matt Nathanson and Sugarland “Run” on the Country Music Awards
“Both Nettles and Nathanson can sing their tushies off, too, and by the end of the song, they were soaring.” – Entertainment Weekly “Better was ‘Run,’ in which the soft rocker Matt Nathanson pulled some tension out of Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles.” – The New York Times “Sugarland and Matt Nathanson displayed adult-pop swiftness with “Run.”” – Los Angeles Times
In one of the standout moments of the evening, Matt Nathanson and Sugarland premiered their new single “Run” in last night’s broadcast of the 45th annual CMA Awards. Nathanson and Sugarland – Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush - co-wrote “Run,” which is featured on Nathanson’s new album, Modern Love. Click here to watch last night’s performance. Fans can purchase the track along with full album Modern Love, currently on sale at iTunes.

He was also the first touring artist to utilize the technology of ‘Tout’ and share exclusive content and connect with fans on the road.
Nathanson will kick off another tour in January with details to be announced shortly.
