Things are back to being sweet in Sugarland

Just days after winning Vocal Duo of the Year at the CMA Awards, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush have made their $14 million feud with former bandmate and founding member Kristen Hall disappear.

So, what went down?

Hall left the group to pursue a solo career in late 2005, but three years later filed a lawsuit claiming her former fellow Sugarlanders owed her one-third of their profits in the multiplatinum career since she left. Hall said she helped found the group, catapult them to success, and ponied up the dough for the band's expenses on their journey to superstardom. 

Bush and Nettles begged to differ, however, saying their former bandmate actually left them with a debt of $100,000. They also denied that they entered into any sort of profit-sharing agreement with Hall that would guarantee her the major money she was seeking.

The terms of the settlement agreement were not disclosed.
