"You really blew this, babe": Hear Sugarland sing with Taylor Swift now

Big Machine RecordsSugarland has shared another track from their upcoming album Bigger, and it's probably the one everybody's most excited to hear.

Titled "Babe," the song features vocals by Taylor Swift, who co-wrote the song with Pat Monahan of the band Train.  Taylor offered the breakup song to the duo last year.

"We’ve never put someone else’s song on a Sugarland record, but we were immediately interested in ‘Babe’ the first time we heard it!” Jennifer Nettles says in a statement. "This one really felt like it belonged so we saved it for the final afternoon of our recording session; a special time for us.” 

Kristian Bush adds, "Our last hours in the studio have always been good luck. 'All I Want to Do’ was from a final session, so was ‘Stuck Like Glue.’ The biggest compliment was when [Taylor] heard our take on the track and emailed us to say she wanted to be a part of it!” 

Jennifer adds that the collaboration is "the perfect combination of mutual admiration for each other and mutual admiration for great songs," noting, "As artists, we really see the world through a similar lens.”

Bigger, Sugarland's first album in six years, is due June 8.  The duo will perform on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 2.  Their Still the Same 2018 tour kicks off May 25.
