Sugarland and Kevin Griffin: Pop Gold

Posted by Greg on Sep 13, 2010 in Music |

I really don’t want to like Sugarland. Jennifer Nettles was a badass soul and blues singer 10 years ago and I loved that about her. Then she put on a country lilt and teamed up with one of my favorite songwriters of all time – the one and only Kristian Bush – and released a series of ubiquitious hits, many of which I have to admit I absolutely love. Their latest though just might be their best. As much as I want to hate it, I cannot get past how damn infectious “Stuck Like Glue,” is. While watching the obnoxious —- and slightly comical —- video on GAC, I noticed that Better Than Ezra’s Kevin Griffin is a co-writer. While its probably selling both Jennifer and Kristian short, I like to think Griffin is the reason this song is so damn catchy. Griffin has written for many, including “Collide,” by Howie Day and Graham Colton’s “Morning Light.” Anyone that knows the BTE repertoire knows he’s a bonafide talent but his snippets of chart-topping success with other artists, may prove it even more so. Until I begin to hate “Stuck Like Glue,” and there’s a good chance I may never hate it, I’ll remain firm in my opinion that Kevin Griffin is one of America’s finest pop songwriters.
