Jennifer Nettles is easily one of country music's most beautiful and talented women, but that doesn't make her exempt from being "super-critical" of herself. In the cover story of Redbook 's March issue , Jennifer admits she really struggles with perfectionism, especially when it comes to parenting her son, Magnus .

"There's no perfect way to do it! You know?" Jennifer says. "It's important to have an examined life, but it's a fine line between having an examined life and being hypercritical of oneself. There has to be balance in there somewhere. I haven't found it yet. When I do, I'll let you know."

On the music front, Jennifer is very pleased with the response her debut solo project, That Girl , has received from fans. The project debuted at #1 on Billboard 's Country Albums chart last month.

She says, "The warm and positive response to this album has been simultaneously inspiring, motivating, and a relief. Now I want to get out there and give the fans a beautiful and intimate performance of these songs live on tour."

Jennifer's interview with Redbook hits stands February 11. Her That Girl tour launches February 14 in Washington, D.C.
