Sugarland has announced plans that Jennifer Nettles and Christian Bush will spend the year of 2012 apart professionally.

There are a lot of rumblings in Nashville about a new solo project that Christian is working on at Mercury Records. This has been a tough year for the Superstar Duo, especially after the stage collapse in Indiana.

Sugarland is huge, and even though Jennifer is "the voice" of the band I believe there is strength in numbers and just hope this is a temporary thing and that Sugarland will back in tact for 2013.

What do you think? Do you think this could be the beginning of the end and just a strategic way to part ways without a lot of waves? I sure hope not. Share your thoughts with us.
