Sugarland: "Ready and willing" to give State Fair depositions


The band Sugarland say they're not trying to avoid giving depositions about what happened on the night of the deadly Indiana State Fair stage collapse.

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland are going to be giving depositions this week.

The band released this statement Thursday:

"In all the back-and-forth between the lawyers, the suggestion's been made that we've somehow been trying to avoid having to answer questions about last summer's terrible tragedy. This is simply not true. There is no one who wants to get to the bottom of what happened more than we do, which is why we're ready, willing, and able to give these depositions today and tomorrow. The judge has put limits on what can be discussed, but within those limits, we intend to be as honest and open as we can. We want all the facts to come out, not only for the sake of all the victims and their loved ones, but also so we can make sure that nothing like this ever happens again."

Also Thursday, the Indiana State Fair Commission announced the results of two key reports into the stage collapse.
