In Your Hands Salt Lake City, UT September 1

Sat, Sep 1, 2012 at 10:26 PM

If you've never made a trip to Salt Lake City, UT we suggest planning one now! You'll find a beautiful city, eat some great food and most importantly meet some AWESOME Sugarland fans! Thanks for your loyalty even through the rain last night, Salt Lake. We love you!

We had some lookers in the crowd last night including a huge heap of you all wearing ponchos and cowboy hats. I think you may have started a trend! Jennifer wore her blue pants and a tight shirt showing off that cute little baby bump while Kristian sported his black cowboy hat, matching all of you!

During the song "Everyday America" we chose Casaya, age five, to hop onstage with us. She is a huge fan of Annie, our bass player, and even dressed up like her for Halloween. That made it so exciting to get her up there with all of us! Oh, and it was her birthday which made it all the more adorable.

We weren't kidding when we say the rain didn't stop you all. Last night's "Find the Beat Again" may have been the most interactive version of that song we've seen. There was endless amounts of stomping, dancing, and jumping all around.

Right before "What I'd Give" ramped up Jennifer turned to the crowd and said, "I didn't know you were so romantic, Utah!" Then Kristian took the reigns on a rocking solo midway through the song. We know they're both rockers at heart!

We had tons of great signs last night that will make our books for most creative. One requested "April Showers" and talked about how a man and his wife got married, divorced and then married again. Jennifer said "I love a good story! This is the fun part about the In Your Hands Tour. We can write a song and share a story with you, but since it is in your hands, you share a story with us! We like to learn about you too!"

Great baby gifts also came from Utah last night, even a yellow hand-stitched blanket. Jennifer will hold that one near to her heart! What a treasure! Another shirt was made that said "Nettles is my baby mama." Hilarious!

Last night was the final show for our friends Canaan Smith and Lauren Alaina. During "Stay" Canaan, Lauren, and Jason - Canaan's guitar player – came on stage and started to shave Jason's chest. This changed the lyrics to the song to "Why don't you SHAVE!" Oh how we love a good tour prank!

Our "Sing With Sugarland" winner was Brynne from Salt Lake City. She auditioned with her sister, but only she got on stage with us to sing "Baby Girl". Brynne swayed back and forth and sang the song like a true champ. At the end of it she got off and said, "Is this real? Did that just really happen?!"

We couldn't thank you enough for everything you did for us last night, Salt Lake! This is the last weekend of the tour, and we're so happy and honored to have spent one of the final nights with you all. Hopefully we'll be back the next time around!

    Thank you for visiting us in Salt Lake City!! We knew that standing through that pouring rain would be well worth it once the show started!! We kept watching the sky and it looked like the storm would never pass, then all the sudden the clouds broke, the sun peeked out, the crowd cheered, a full rainbow appeared right in front of us and Canaan began singing. It was an unbelievable beginning to a rocking show!! Canaan, Lauren, Jennifer, Kristian, the bands and crew are amazing and put on THE best show! Thank you for playing 'Everyday America' for me, I was there with my niece who will be turning 5 on the 10th, and my nephew who was going to his first concert ever - we enjoyed the whole night! It was great of Kristian to take my guitar sign and my niece's birthday sign up to the stage with him!

They are true entertainers and will go far in their careers!! That was a fun night, even with the rain destroying our hair and freezing us out!!

I just saw the recap from Jennifer and Kristian and they played "Tonight" for me!! That's really cool..made my day! That's a fun song to sing!! They also said that last night's rendition of "Find The Beat Again was the most inteactive one..I LOVE that hast really helped me get through the hard times, because I know i'll "Find the Beat Again." My friend and I are HUGE Sugarland fans!!! We were singing at the top of our lungs and dancing away in the front row of the Sugarpit!!! Jennifer and Kristian really know how to throw a party!! I hope you guys come back soon!!! Jennifer- Good luck with your new baby.. you and your husband will be Great parents! Keep up the great work, and we'll see ya out on the road!!! =)

    last night I was able to fulfill a dream of mine by seeing my all time favorite band for the FIRST time! I feel like I've been cursed the past few years- not being in state for the past two Sugarland shows- and then having them cancel when they came with Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert. But last night- rain or shine- I was going to see my idols no matter what! And one f the best parts of the night- a kind couple offered my friend and I their chair seats- so we didn't have to sit under soaked blankets all night! :) My favorite part of the night was hearing Jennifer sing my all time favorite song (Stay) - even though it turned into a great joke at the end! And I enjoyed singing along to "Settlin", "Everyday America","Stuck LIke Glue", "Gotta Be Something More", "Baby Girl" and all the other great songs. Thanks so much for making last night one I'll remember forever! :)
