Members of Sugarland to play Vilar Center

Special to the DailyJennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are two of the three talented musicians in Sugarland. The country music stars will be in Beaver Creek in November for a charity show.

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado In an effort to share the Common Thread of music, lifestyle and philanthropy, country sensations Sugarland, Emily Saliers of the renowned group Indigo Girls and acclaimed singer/songwriter Amos Lee will share the Vilar Center stage Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. to launch a brand new non-profit organization.

Conceptualized by Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, Common Thread will be driven by her own philosophy of balanced living through music, yoga, eco-consciousness and most importantly, giving back. Im hoping that Common Thread will be a multi-genre diverse bill under the common thread of activism and community organization, Nettles said. I do believe that one action can cause a great ripple and make a difference. So, if you inspire some of your fans to go out into their own communities and effect change, then thats success.The inaugural show will feature Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Emily Saliers and Amos Lee weaving together individual and group acoustic performances in the intimate setting of the Vilar Performing Arts Center. A select number of VIP tickets will be available for $500. VIP ticket holders will attend a silent auction champagne reception with the artists. The auction will feature one-ofa-kind artist paintings, photographs and signed memorabilia, along with a variety of resort offerings.All proceeds from the show, along with monies raised through the silent auction, will be donated to the performing artists charity of choice. Nettles proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society; Bushs proceeds will benefit the American Liver Foundation, Saliers proceeds will benefit Honor the Earth; and Lees proceeds will benefit Music & Mentorship Program of Intercultural Family Services. Limited VIP tickets are offered at $500. Tickets for the performance only are $150/$50 based on seating.
