Indianapolis, October 28: Were you there?

Fri, Oct 28, 2011 at 7:15 PM

Indianapolis, we were so happy to be here with you this evening, and happy that you were here with us - as Jennifer said - for everything that meant tonight. It was an emotional show, as well as a celebratory show, celebrating life, and music, and healing. Thank you to our special guests, Rita Wilson and Corey Cox... and thank YOU for being a part of it.

Thank you for bringing signs of support for your loved ones and your fellow fans; thank you for the Little Miss Project Live, the posters tonight connected by red string; thank you for the giant LOVE flag the Sugarpit lifted for us. And most of all, thank you for singing and dancing and raising your voices to the heavens. We know that they were heard.

If you were a part of the "Incredible Machine" tonight, won't you please share your experience and memories in the comments?

    Iwas there and it was awesome! I was injured in the first one but thanks to wonderful strangers who didn't know me I got the help I needed. Sugarland you are awesome and will always be. I have been to every single one of your concerts in Indiana and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. This concert was a night of tears and a night of joy. I cried at first when I saw you come on stage because I had been waiting for that moment since the first concert. I knew you would come back I had no doubt in my mind because that is the type of musicians you are. Your music is healing power for all of us in Indiana involved in the tragedy. Love always!

    My daughter lost her life because of this concert after 9 days in the hospital. She had a bright shining future before her. Our family will be forever devastated and heartbroken. Sugarland and the fair board have never once contacted our family about the loss of our beautiful daughter who gave so much to so many people. They think they will be forever changed? They can never begin to imagine the pain and loss that we feel as a result of losing our beautiful daughter.

    Yes I was there, and also the first one. Jennifer you are so right, we are changed from that first concert. Life is different, and everyday I remember that first concert attempt, over and over in my head. It is a hard thing to get over mentally. When I heard you guys were going to come back to give a free concert, It was a tough to really make my mind up to want to go again! But it was two days before I finally made my mind up to go. Not knowing what to expect, in just how I would feel about all this, I get very emotional just talking about what happened at the first concert, So just to let you know, you both put on the best performace I have ever seen. The emotion, the love, the beautiful hearts that you both have, and not to forget Your Music! You both are the incredible machine. Sugarland helped with the healing, and help to close that chapter of my life. I can see and feel your love in your music, you do love what you do cause it shows, in your words, in your voice (and you have an incredible voice, I listen to sugarland all day long.) I became a big fan of sugarland about 3 1/2 years ago, at that time in my life I had left my husband of almost 25 years. It was Sugarland's music that helped me through that ruff time in my life. Your songs had the answers to all my life's question, you guided me with your words in your songs. I thank you for words and your music. The concert in Indy was the best, and you two are the most wonderful people. Thanks for your love, your healing, and your music, keep it coming! and congrats on the Duo of the Year! love you guys, and God Bless you both more then He has already.

    I’m in CA and was grateful that this was on the National newscast. Your humble, heartfelt words were moving and extraordinary.
    Beyond your incredible talent, your hearts, humanity and compassion are such a gift you continue to share.
    Thank you for substantiating my belief that fame and stardom do not change good people.

    A fabulous and healing concert indeed. Myself and 6 of my family (husband, children and grandchildren) were next to the stage when it collapsed. People standing next to us were pinned under the rigging and injured. God in his graciousness saved my family from that tragedy. My daughter received abrasions down the back of her leg from the scaffolding but that was the only injury in my family. Only 3 of us returned for the conseco concert with another of my sons. My 6 yr old granddaughter had been having nightmares since the collapse. When Jennifer and Kristian walked out on stage....tears welled up in her eyes, she looked at her picture of Sugarland, looked back at the stage and smiled the biggest smile I've seen. Loreli found her healing. She had great fun at the concert and has been a happy little girl since. Thank you Jennifer and Kristian for giving not only my granddaughter healing, but healing for many others by returning to Indy and giving us a wonderful night and a part of yourselves.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful concert. I think it would be a great memorial if you did a dvd of the night of tradgedy and going into the night of healing with pictures of the family members that passed away and the people who were injured and then put the whole concert at conseco on dvd in memory of indianapolis state fair and sell them and the profit go to the families that need help. It will also help in the healing process. You guys are wonderful for what you have done for all families who were there. Thank you for an amazing concert!
