As courts decide who’s to blame, who to fine and how to learn from the tragic stage collapse that occurred minutes before Sugarland was scheduled to take the stage at the Indiana State Fair last August, one fair executive claims the band resisted any delay in their show.

The Associated Press reports that transcripts from Indiana State Fair Commission executive director Cindy Hoye reveal Sugarland was approached twice about delaying their show and that duo was worried that any delay would effect Jennifer Nettles warm up time along with set up delay’s at the next night’s show.

“They were trying to get to Iowa to play the Iowa State Fair, and so they said they did not want to delay,” Hoye said during a Jan. 16 deposition.

Sugarland’s representatives did not respond to the AP’s request for comment.

Mid-America spokeswoman Myra Borshoff Cook says they released some of Hoye’s testimony because “we thought it was important for people to see the bigger picture.”

I agree!!!

Sugarland is still in a number of lawsuits over the accident, which killed seven and injured 58 others.

I will keep you posted……
