Ellis joins Sugarland's Incredible Machine Tour
Wednesday, September 8, 2010
"Ellis has a voice that is so powerful that you know who it is the second he comes through your radio.
His music and songs are a new birth in American sound that makes me want to go see concerts again."
- Kristian Bush, Sugarland
Ellis Paul joined Grammy Award winning country-rock duo Sugarland's Incredible Machine Tour this weekend for shows at Penn State University (Bryce Jordan Center), Cooperstown, NY (Doubleday Field) and Gilford, NH, at the sold out Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion. Sharing the stage for the first two shows was Little Big Town who presently have the #1 song on the Country charts.
The pairing of Ellis and Sugarland comes from a 15+ year friendship between Kristian Bush, the founder of Sugarland and Ellis. The two not only have been close friends but writing partners throughout the years... Ellis' latest album, The Day After Everything Changed, has five songs co-written with Bush, and Sugarland's 2009 holiday album Gold and Green features two Bush-Paul co-writes, "City of Silver Dreams" and "Little Wood Guitar".
