Remember when country group Sugarland covered Beyoncé’s hit single “Irreplaceable”? They performed the song at 2007 American Music Awards, and Bey actually came on stage a sung the track with them.
The lead singer of the group, Jennifer Nettles, was taken back to that moment during an interview recently, where she was asked about it.
She said, “That was so fun! We had been doing a cover of it as a kind of bluegrass number — we thought it would be pretty unique to take a hip-hop song and make it into a bluegrass-country song. Beyonce heard it and we were both under the same umbrella label and communications started back and forth about doing something together.”
It was pretty cool to see the two genres collide and it made for quite the interesting sound!
