The Stay singer announced her split from Universal Music Group earlier this month (Aug15), and although she is still signed to the label as a member of Sugarland, Nettles is now part of Big MAChine as a solo artist.

Nettles joins an impressive roster of artists on the Nashville-based record label, including Taylor Swift, Tim MCGraw, Reba MCEntire, Rascal Flatts, Steven Tyler and Florida Georgia Line, among others.

It's not clear when Nettles' first Big MAChine release will be available, but she has been keeping busy with her burgeoning acting career. The singer recently wrapped her Broadway debut in musical Chicago and has been cast to play Dolly Parton's mother in TV biopic Coat of Many Colors.

The matter has just been settled with the defendants splitting a $39 million (GB26 million) pay-out, and now Bush can talk about the tragedy for the first time.

He tells Rolling Stone, "I wasn't able to contact anyone who got hurt. We were famous for a terrible thing, and we couldn't talk about it."

Jennifer Nettles And Bush Give Depositions In Indiana State Fair Tragedy Investigation


Jennifer Nettles Sugarland Kristian Bush

Sugarland stars Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are offering up their recollection of events that led up to the Indiana State Fair tragedy last year (11), which cost seven fans their lives, as part of an ongoing investigation into the stage collapse drama.

Nettles gave a deposition on Thursday (12Apr12) and spoke about what she knew about staging and weather conditions prior to the group's scheduled concert on 13 August, 2011, and Bush is expected to give his account on Friday (13Apr12).

Officials from two organisations hired to complete an investigation of the incident have cited improper construction of the stage rigging and inadequate emergency preparations for the tragedy.

Structural expertise organisation Thornton Thomasetti vice president Scott Nacheman has told lawmakers the stage rigging was not built to withstand the windspeeds required by the building codes.

Jennifer Nettles To Testify In State Fair Stage Collapse


Jennifer Nettles Sugarland

Sugarland star Jennifer Nettles has been ordered to take the stand in a bid to settle a lawsuit relating to the deadly Indiana State Fair stage collapse last year (11).

Seven people were killed and dozens more injured when the stage collapsed onto a crowd of fans as a storm swept through the Indianapolis fairgrounds in August (11) - right before country duo Sugarland were due to perform.

Estate executors for the deceased and three injured concert goers filed a lawsuit against Mid-America bosses last August (11), alleging the firm was responsible for the tragedy since its workers were tasked with building the rigging and roof, which eventually caved.

During a deposition in January (12), Indiana State Fair Commission Executive Director Cindy Hoye claimed the band resisted delaying the start of the show despite warnings of severe weather, and on Friday (23Mar12) Marion Superior Court Judge Theodore Sosin ordered Nettles to testify and provide her side of the story.
