Gimme Some Sugarland!

What a fun afternoon...into night we had! 8 hours of FUN. Off to Mogehan Sun in Connecticut I went on my maiden voyage down some pretty boring highways arriving inUncasville to see Sugarland with my friend Julie and sisters-in-law Jean and Karen. We left around 2pm and two hours later were in the middle of nowhere...but right in the middle of all of the action. I've only been to Las Vegas once, but this casino pretty much mirrored the look and feel of the Vegas casinos. How I had never been here before now kind of baffles me, but it is certainly someplace I would visit again. From the moment you get out of the car it's playtime!

The stadium they performed in was huge and it is attached to the casino making it very convenient to get in and out. Lucky for us we had the good seats right up front ; ) Sara Bareilles opened up and she is so cute! I've never seen her before though I knew several of her hits.
Although Jennifer Nettles grabs the spotlight with her energy and powerhouse vocals, Kristian Bush the other half of Sugarland, is also quite spirited and talented and comes off very friendly and warm onstage.
"Why don't you stay? I'm up off my knees. I'm so tired of being lonely, you can't give me what I need..." Brought the house down again! I've been fortunate enough to see Sugarland twice this year and it's always a great show. So much twang in her speaking voice but "Little Miss" Jennifer just shows power when she sings. It's very moving to hear her in person.
