Songfacts®:

  • The first new music from Sugarland since "Run," their 2011 collaboration with Matt Nathanson, "Still the Same" features the duo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush reintroducing themselves to their longtime fans.

    Our love is still the same, still the same, still the same
    And here we are
    We've come so far
    Let's leave it better than how it came
    Don't be afraid to change


    "It was really quite anticlimactic," Bush said in an iHeartCountry interview about their reunion following their half a decade break. "We hung out in a room for the first time in five, six years and wrote a song and started in about 45 minutes. Exactly what you're hearing is exactly what we're feeling in that moment. What's this like? Where have you been? How are you feeling?"
  • Jennifer Nettles sings about still being the same person in a relationship, despite having changed. The lyrics are hazy enough to be taken as both a love song and a message for their fans following the duo's long hiatus. "We are thrilled for fans to hear our new music, especially this new single," said Jennifer Nettles in a press release. "The title of the song is so meaningful to us as we want fans to know, we are still the same, we are still the same Sugarland they've known and loved."
