Jennifer Nettles to perform benefit solo show for Attic Community Playground

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles has announced a rare solo performance at a benefit  for the Attic Community Playground (a non-profit organization supporting the performing arts) on January 15th at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas.

Native Texan Jack Ingram, who took home the 2008 ACM Best New Male Vocalist award, is scheduled to open the show for Nettles.

Proceeds from the show will go to the Ponder High School Band and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas, and the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia — a suburb of Nettles’s adopted hometown of Atlanta.

In a press release, Nettles stated: “Attic Community Playground is one of my dearest charities. Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama—each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence.”
