Sugarland releases official statement

Indianapolis, IN - The front runner for the country music band Sugarland released an official statement in regards to the Indiana State Fair tragedy Saturday.

"I am so moved. 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.

There are no words to process a moment of this magnitude and gravity. There are only prayers for peace in the hearts of the bereft, and prayers of thanksgiving for those who were spared or safe. A piece of our heart is left in that grandstand. May God provide peace and healing to the people of Indianapolis. We wish to pass along our most sincere thanks for the messages of love, prayer, and support from our fan family. We'll post any further updates here as they become available." --Jennifer Nettles.
