NEW YORK, June 24 (UPI) -- The U.S. country music duo Sugarland is set to star in its first network television special, ABC announced.

The one-hour program, "Sugarland: Live on the Inside," is intended to offer viewers a "cinematic postcard from their tour," the network said in a release. The special is slated to air Aug. 3, the day before the duo's CD/DVD "Live on the Inside" is due to hit stores.

Filmed at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky., by director Shaun Silva, the program features Sugarland performing some its biggest hits, such as "Settlin,'" "Stay," "All I Want to Do" and "Something More."

"Television music specials and performances become iconic. Who hasn't seen replays of the Beatles on 'Ed Sullivan' or Elvis' TV special wearing his jump suit and giving away his scarf?" Sugarland member Jennifer Nettles said in a statement. "Even performances that I can remember as a child, like 'Live Aid' for example, really made such an impact. We are so excited to have our show on ABC and hope that it will be a moment that people will enjoy and remember."

"We have overheard fans for years say, 'I brought my friend to see the show; this is their first Sugarland experience,' with so much pride and excitement on their faces. It's as if they can't wait to share what they have discovered," added Sugarland singer Kristian Bush. "This special is their new ticket that they can give to a friend. That's the most exciting part of this, imagining how far it will reach."
