FIRST LOOK: Sugarland Offers a Glimpse into Their Studio

Originally posted 10/13/2010 08:50AM

The country duo Sugarland are pulling back the curtain to reveal the process behind making their new album – and PEOPLE.com has a first look at the footage.

Living Liner Notes – a live version of the writings usually found in a CD booklet – offers an inside look at the pair in their Atlanta studio during the February recording process of their fourth album, The Incredible Machine, due Oct. 19.

"The Living Liner Notes are exactly what they sound like they are, in the sense that, just like in an album, you receive the liner notes that talk about each song in different and varying degrees of detail," Jennifer Nettles, 36, tells PEOPLE. "We actually did living versions of those where we talk about each song."

Taylor Swift Sweeps the CMAs

Taylor Swift opened the show with a winning performance – but the 19-year-old singer had to wait until the end of the Country Music Assocation Awards telecast Wednesday night to collect the biggest honor: entertainer of the year.

Sobbing as she took the stage of Nashville's Sommet Center, Swift – the youngest-ever winner of the CMA's top trophy – called her band to join her onstage. "I will never forget this moment because in this moment everything I have ever wanted has just happened to me," she said.

It was a monumental night for Swift, who took home four awards in total, including album of the year for her smash hit Fearless and, in an upset, female vocalist of the year, beating out the night's co-host, Carrie Underwood.

It's been a busy year for Sugarland – the duo starred in a primetime ABC special and produced their chart-topping CD/DVD release Live on the Inside – but they have one more treat for fans: Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles have released their first Christmas album Gold & Green.

Bush, 39, and Nettles, 35, show off their holiday spirit with a silly tongue-and-cheek Christmas commercial full of clichés, lights, good music and hot cocoa.

"I'm a sucker for Christmas music," Bush tells PEOPLE of making the album, adding that his favorite holiday tune is Frosty the Snowman.
