The unsaid truth of Chris Trousdale and Anna Sundstrand’s relationship, When eulogizing his friend and former band member, Jesse McCartney said of Chris Trousdale on Instagram: “It pains me to say that an old friend, Chris Trousdale, from my early days in the music industry, has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Chris had an explosively charming personality with boundless amounts of talent.”
With such a powerful level of charm, many have wondered if Trousdale ever had a romantic connection with singer Anna Sundstrand. It’s a fair question because they collaborated on many songs together, most notably the dreamy hit “If Only.” They performed often on stage together, even offering a sweaty version of greases “You’re the One That I Want” in 2006.
While Sundstrand and Trousdale frequently performed together and worked on music together, there has never been any substantial evidence that they dated. In fact, according to MTV, Sundstrand and Trousdale were longtime friends. After she left Play, Sundstrand took up modelling with New York’s Model Management Group circa 2005. She later wrote a book, according to MTV, about her time as a child star in the music industry, which is available in Sweden, according to her Instagram.
This must be devastating news for Sundstrand that Trousdale has passed and so we wish her our condolences.
