Jennifer Nettles is a successful country star with a net worth of million, who often hosts CMA’s Country Christmas, a huge annual concert event.
Nettles is best known as part of the famous duo Sugarland, but at home, she’s known as a mother and wife.
"I was just scared."For a long time, Bush said, he didn't know what had really happened.
Even though the stage had collapsed, he and Nettles weren't allowed to leave the dressing room area underneath it."As different crew people would try to go out, they would stop them and hold them back," he recalled.
Eventually, Nettles, Bush and crew were evacuated to their buses, where he remembers there was "all sorts of silence." Again, they weren't allowed to leave.
They watched footage of the stage collapse on CNN."I obviously saw the aftermath of it because we're looking at it outside the bus window, but it was still unfathomable what happened," he said.
His debut solo album, "Southern Gravity," released Tuesday, is home to those songs."I'm as surprised as anybody else to be sitting across from the album that I'm sitting across from because it's so happy," Bush said, tears still in his eyes.But concerts, wedded bliss and thank-you cards aren't the only items on this newlywed's to-do list.Sugarland is facing a newly filed lawsuit over an Indiana State Fair stage collapse last August that left seven dead and more than 40 others injured. 23 on behalf of 44 survivors and the families of four of the people killed, alleges that Sugarland "had supervisory authority and discretion" over the stage size and lighting system, among other concert-related aspects.In the days and years following, Bush couldn't talk about the tragedy because of pending lawsuits.Three months after the collapse, Bush's divorce was final. ' And I'm like, 'I'm OK, I've got this.' Although I didn't."'I was just scared'Uncharacteristically for him, Bush poured himself into songwriting.
