Jennifer Nettles is excited to release her debut solo album, That Girl, on January 14. The project was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin who has worked with the likes of Johnny Cash, Aerosmith, Eminem, AC/DC, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Adele. Jennifer was intimidated to work with him at first but warmed up quickly.
“I think one of the things that surprised me most about Rick was how warm and gentle he was, not that I was necessarily expecting anything otherwise, but I didn’t know what to expect,” she said. “When one has the reputation and the pedigree and the success that he has had, there’s a bit of an intimidation factor, at least there was for me. The fact that he was so warm and collaborative and gentle and open and was really pleasant to work with was a big surprise.”
That Girl will feature Jennifer’s current single by the same name. Her That Girl Tour will kick off February 14 in Washington, D.C.
