Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles reacts to Indiana tragic event

The 155th Indiana State Fair was blown away by a terrible tragedy Saturday, August 13.

The country duo Sugarland was getting ready to go on stage but the facility collapsed on the crowd that awaited the performance under the pressure of the high winds, killing four people and injuring about forty others.

According to Dan McCarthy, chief meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Indiana , the wind was much stronger than in other areas of the fairgrounds.

Gov. Mitch Daniels said precautions were taken before the storm. He added that no one could have anticipated such a strong gust in one place.

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, who form the successful band Sugarland, were shocked by the accident, especially since they could have been on stage at the moment the tragedy took place.

“I am so moved,” Nettles said in a statement to The Associated Press. “Moved by the grief of those families who lost loved ones. Moved by the pain of those who were injured and the fear of their families. Moved by the great heroism as I watched so many brave Indianapolis fans actually run toward the stage to try and help lift and rescue those injured. Moved by the quickness and organization of the emergency workers who set up the triage and tended to the injured.”

Nettles and Bush, who won Top Vocal Duo of the Year at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards , canceled their Sunday show at the Iowa State Fair.

Referring to questions about the accident to fair officials, Sugarland manager Jason Owen said in an email, “it was their stage and lighting rigs so it wouldn’t be right for us to comment.”
