What Jennifer Nettles have to say about being the only Country act?
According to the plan Katy Perry, Sugarland, Hilson, and Nicki Minaj will perform for the men and women in uniform at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego while Williams and Paramore entertain troops at a Middle East military base.
“All of these women definitely have a larger than life persona, be it on stage or who they are or what they wear,” says Nettles of Sugarland singer said. “I think there’s something to be said for celebrating that.”
Nettles also noted that Sugarland is the only country act on the Diva lineup, describing it as an opportunity to prove “that country music is hip and young and fun and accessible.”
“It’s not necessarily about the lifestyle,” Nettles added. “It’s about having fun and being human.”
“VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” premieres Dec. 5 on VH1 and airs internationally on the Armed Forces Network.
