Sugarland Is on Extended Maternity Leave

Kristian Bush of Sugarland has been really active with his solo career lately, and that raises the question: When might Sugarland be back on the scene?

Kristian tells The Hollywood Reporter that his partner, Jennifer Nettles, is on extended maternity leave.

"We haven't talked about an end date," he said. "If a record becomes part of this, absolutely, without blinking, I would tour it," Kristian said of his solo career, which is taking off in Europe.

"Jennifer wants to be a mom and experience that, and I totally understand because I have two kids and raised them through all this. I think you have to trust mothers on that kind of stuff," he said.

"In my experience, they sometimes want more time and sometimes get antsy that they want to get back to work. There’s an identity thing that goes on where you spend so much time caring for your child that after a year or so you have to shake it off and go, ‘Who am I?’ [Either way] I am nothing but supportive of that experience for her or anybody else.

"We decided not to write anything for the next record until the other side of the baby, which seems like a good choice, because she’s going to see world differently after the baby than before. So I think there’s plenty of time [for solo projects] right now."
