Jennifer developed an early interest in music when she learnt to play the piano and began performing at school assemblies, church events, and community theater. She even became a member of Georgia’s Clovers & Company 4-H club. She attended Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia, after graduating from Coffee High School in her hometown, where she studied sociology and anthropology and graduated in 1997. Jennifer Nettles started an acoustic duo with Cory Jones in college called Soul Miner’s Daughter. Jennifer Nettles’ net worth is based on the publication of two albums, “The Sacred and Profane” (1996) and “Hallelujah” (1998).
She went on to form the Jennifer Nettles Band in 1999. Jennifer released three studio albums and two live albums with drummer Brad Sikes, pianist Scott Nicholson, bassist Wesley Lupold, and percussionist Mike Cebulski, and won the top prize of Mars Music’s “The Big Deal $100,000 Music Search” against over 2,000 other bands. Jennifer’s net worth increased as a result of this award, in addition to increasing her popularity.
Sugarland was formed in 2003 when Jennifer linked up with two stalwarts of Atlanta’s alternative rock scene, Kristian Bush and Kristen Hall. Later that year, Mercury Nashville published their debut album “Twice the Speed of Life,” which was a major success, generating multiple hit songs, the most renowned of which was “Baby Girl,” and selling over two million copies. Sugarland and Jennifer were nominated for multiple Academy of Country Music Awards in 2005 as their popularity grew. After Kristen Hall departed the group in 2006, the trio became a pair, but this had little influence on their quality; the album “Enjoy the Ride” produced multiple top 10 successes, including “Stay,” which received the ACM Award for Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Sugarland has even been nominated for a Grammy Award.
Jennifer Nettles’ past success led to a collaboration with Bon Jovi in 2006, and the duet performance “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Jennifer Nettles and Bon Jovi were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration in 2007. Jennifer Nettles began her solo career in 2014, and her album “That Girl” quickly rose to the top of the charts. “Playing with Fire,” her second solo album, will be published soon. She has collaborated with some notable names in the music industry, including John Legend, Michael W. Smith, and Kenny Rogers, and has won multiple honors throughout her illustrious career.
Jennifer also dabbled in the film industry, appearing in the 2015 NBC television film “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” and the 2016 WGN smash series “Underground.” In her personal life, Jennifer Nettles married Todd Van Sickle in 1998, but the couple split in 2007. She has been married to entrepreneur and former model Justin Miller since 2011, and they have a son together. Jennifer Nettles is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, with her family.
Jennifer Nettles is an ardent supporter of charity causes and non-profit groups outside of music; in 2007, she raised over $120,000 for the Shalom Foundation, and a year later she founded Common Thread, a series of musical events that allows various musicians to collect money for charity.
