Sugarland Set to Perform Popular “Stand Up” At the 2011 CMT Music Awards Tonight.
Sugarland is among the long list of performances country fans have to look forward at this evening’s CMT Music Awards. They will be performing their popular song “Stand Up” which they recently transformed into “Stand Up for Tornado Relief” creating a special video in an effort to raise awareness and funds for victims suffering from the devastation of the damage created by this Spring’s rash of tornadoes.
Every night of their current Incredible Machine tour, the duo creates and flies a “LOVE” flag at the beginning of the encore while playing the song. This was an integral symbol in their move to show their support for tornado relief efforts and in encouraging their fans to show their support as well. Sugarland will be including this important symbol in their CMT Music Awards performance this evening.
In a special video clip, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush discuss the meaning behind the flag. You can check it out here.
Be sure to tune in tonight on CMT or cmt.com at 8pm CT/PT to check out Sugarland’s performance!
