Sugarland played a sold-out show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Saturday night (4/16), drawing a crowd of 14,000 fans for the event with special guests Little Big Town and Matt Nathanson. This stop on The Incredible Machine Tour marked Sugarland’s first headlining gig in Music City.

Kristian Bush says that a highlight of the show each night is the performance of new single “Tonight.” “When Jennifer gets to the first big ‘Always’ and holds it forever, and the band finally kicks in, and the electric guitars rumble to life under her note, it really turns the room into a stadium,” he says. “I love how the audience starts to cheer and scream and how that energy carries us and the song to a new place. It makes a man want to play guitar!”

Yesterday (4/19) the duo released the video for “Tonight” exclusively through iTunes. AOL will begin streaming it tomorrow (4/21). Directed by Marcus Raboy (Santana, Mary J. Blige, Avril Lavigne), the video shot at the old Woolworth mansion in New York City plays like a striking fashion spread with numerous lighting and wardrobe looks.

Up for bid is the chance to see and/or meet Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Jon Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and, of course Sugarland.

The Mercury Nashville duo is the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and has sold more than 9 million records to date.
