Jennifer and Kristian from Sugarland Going Separate Ways In 2012

As far as we know, this is only a temporary split, but GotCountryOnline.com is reporting that Sugarland has announced that Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will spend 2012 apart professionally.

2011 was a tough year for the duo after the stage collapse tragedy in Indiana, but hopefully, they’ll be back touring and recording together in 2013. They’ll definitely be missed this year. What are your thoughts?
