Well I don’t think many thought it would be Kristian Bush to release the first solo single from the Sugarland duo. But with Jennifer taking time to be with her growing family it was a good time for Kristian to continue releasing music as a solo artist. Here is the first listen to his new single.
Love Or Money – Kristian Bush
We haven’t really heard a lot of Kristian Bush and his voice in the group and duo Sugarland over the years, but I think we always knew he was very talented. The duo has been on the top of the country charts for years.
Kristian had some time to try things out on his own and he does a great job. The song could have gotten off to a really weird start because of the title. It’s that kind of song title that could be a little too hokey or obvious, but the melody saves it.
And really that’s what Sugarland has always done well over the years. They know how to create these really great melodies and hooks. Kristian does that once again with this upbeat song about those two things in life that always seem to matter most to people – love or money.
This is a really good song. It’s about having to choose between love and money during our lives. It seems like things always come down to choices and balance in life. We can do one thing at the expense of another. If we can find that balance then we’ll be doing alright.
Great debut here from one half of the super duo, Sugarland.
