Jennifer Nettles – Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles got married Saturday in a small, sunset ceremony in Tennessee.
The singer married entrepreneur Justin Miller at a chapel. Miller is a former model who’s been dating the singer for more than two years.
Wearing an Alexander McQueen gown, she got married to Miller at a chapel nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in front of an intimate group of close family and friends, including bandmate Kristian Bush.
Miller appeared in the video for the band’s 2006 single, “Want To,” and accompanied the singer to the CMA Awards on November 9, where Sugarland took home the award for vocal duo of the year.
But the honeymoon may have to wait, since Nettles is performing Wednesday with Lady Gaga at the Grammy Nomination Concert Live, and hosting the annual CMA Country Christmas special, airing Thursday on ABC at 9 p.m. ET.
Sugarland was founded in 2002 by Kristen Hall with Bush and ultimately became a trio after hiring Jennifer Nettles as lead singer. After three years, Hall left the group.
In July 2008, Kristen Hall filed a lawsuit for $14 million against Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles stating that she was being excluded from sharing profits as had been agreed upon after her departure in 2005 to pursue a solo career.
Hall claims to have coined the name of the band and allowed the remaining members “to obtain equal co-ownership of the trademark and service mark.”
Hall’s name is listed on the trademark for “Sugarland.” The lawsuit was eventually settled outside of court in November 2010. Details regarding the settlement agreement were not disclosed.
