About Kristian Bush

Kristian Bush is a singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

Billy Pilgrim released a total of nine albums in their respective careers.

In 2002, he co-founded the band Sugarland. Within a matter of two years, the band dominated the country music sphere by crossing the sale margin of 22 million globally.
