Following a confetti-filled countdown to 2014, Kristian Bush of fan-favorite duo Sugarland will head out on the road to play a few solo tour dates. 

But remember, just because Bush is touring solo doesn't mean that Sugarland's break will turn into "forever." He clarifies to, saying that although he and Jennifer Nettles are on separate paths for now, it could actually be beneficial for the duo as a whole.

“I’m just in a different place in life than she is,” Bush says, adding that he has spent the time writing several songs each day and honing his craft. “You can either look at [the break] as a good thing or a bad thing. I look at it as a good thing. Can you imagine what we will do after we gather all this knowledge? It’s going to be insane!”

Bush is going to soak up every minute of his solo status, kicking off 2014 at the 30A Songwriter's Festival, along with a few shows in the Southern states. While the ‘Love or Money’ singer focuses on his solo tour, his Sugarland partner will also be zoning in on her solo tour and album, 'That Girl,' which is set to release Jan. 14.

Tickets for all of Bush’s 2014 shows are available here.
