Sugarland Tells Cricket Wireless Pavilion Crowd to 'Put a Ring on It'

For all y'all who think country music is one-dimensional or the genre's singers aren't willing to shake things up, think again. Sugarland proved they're hip and stuff last night at their show at Cricket Wireless Pavilion, leaving the audience with a moment no one on the interwebs can shut up about--their covers of Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus and the Jackson 5.

They also gave the crowd a sneak peek at some new songs off their upcoming album, due this fall. The crowd response was overwhelmingly positive, and you can check out more of what fans thought of the show, with opener Julianne Hough from Dancing with the Stars, below.
