Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles announced today that she'll release her debut solo album this fall. The as-yet-untitled project is being produced by legendary producer Rick Rubin, who has flexed his rootsy side in the past with work on albums by Johnny Cash, Dixie Chicks and the Avett Brothers.
"I am absolutely thrilled and wholly proud to be working with Rick," Nettles said. "If you ask any musician who is on their producer 'bucket list,' Rick would be on each and every one."
Chatting with Rolling Stone, Nettles says,"I still get nervous around him, in a kind of a music-crush way."
