Just saw video footage of the stage collapsing at Sugarland’s show in Indiana. Oh my gosh that is maybe one of scariest things I’ve ever seen. Please keep all of their families in your prayers. What a horrible thing to happen.

My prayers to the people at the Sugarland concert. Absolutely shocking and hard to comprehend. Beyond belief. The more I see and learn about this the sicker I am. Storms and high winds!!! When will we learn?

What happened in Indianapolis tonight is what promoters, artists, crews and fans pray never happens. We send our thoughts and prayers to the 4 people who lost their lives tonight and to everyone who was at the concert.

So sad to hear about the State Fair in Indianapolis. Our prayers are with Sugarland, their fans. And most importantly, our prayers are with the families of the injured and the families of the four people who were killed.
