While enjoying a break in their tour, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles found herself reaching out to the community and using her influence to help others. Recently she walked the red carpet and catwalk for the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show hosted by The Heart Truth, an organization created to help raise awareness for women’s heart disease.
In her stunning red dress, Jennifer and others strutted their stuff for NY Fashion Week raising both money and awareness for this worthy cause. Nettles posted a recap of the event on their blog. Here’s what Jennifer said (from the web site) about her experience:
Hello My Sweets,
We have been enjoying a small break from the road. We’ve been writing and enjoying our families, and now we’re starting to gear back up for our new tour that kicks off in April. As we’re beginning to poke our heads through the ice of our winter hibernation, I made a fun outing at New York’s Fashion Week. I was invited to walk the catwalk for the Heart Truth charity.
Heart Truth hopes to raise awareness for women’s heart disease. (Incidentally, heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the US.) So, in honor of this very worthy cause, I decided step outside my usual comfort zone on the stage and walk the catwalk for New York’s Fashion Week. (I mean hey, if you’ve never walked a catwalk before, why not start in NY for Fashion week right?!). I’ve included some highlights so you can see some of the photos from this fun and worthy event.

Glad to see Jennifer got to take a little time off – and how nice that she got to enjoy something liked this Red Dress Fashion Show to raise awareness for women’s heart disease.
