Sugarland might be in legal hot water after Indiana residents filed suit against them.
The band was set to perform at the Indiana State Fair Grounds in August 2011 when the stage collapsed due to strong gusts.
Over 45 people were injured and seven were killed.
The band was spared due to an impromptu prayer circle.
44 victims are suing Sugarland, Live Nation, ESG Security, the stagehand union and others for negligence and they are seeking unspecified damages.
Back in August, the band tweeted their condolences and returned later to perfrom a free benefit concert.
Attourneys of the plantiffs are including Sugarland in the lawsuit because the band had final say whether or not to cancel the concert in a clause in their contract.
Do U think the band or anyone is at fault for the tragedy?

The award show isn't until February but it should pack plenty of surprises.
There are even rumors Van Halen may resurface and reunite at the Grammys after a teaser plays during the pre-award show.
Do U think a pre-award show three months away is worth it?
The poor people who died at the Indiana State Fair this past August can never be replaced, but perhaps this will help ease the pain of those still with us who suffered so dearly that day.
Sugarland duo Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will return to Indiana this month for a free concert at Conseco Fieldhouse. The October 28th show will serves as the band's final stop on their Incredible Machine Tour and will feature some TBA special guests.
According to the press release,
These guys really are troopers.
It's been emotional few days for many, after high winds caused a stage on which Sugarland was only seconds away from performing at the Indiana State Fair to collapse, killing six and leaving 45 others injured.
Naturally, the band was not only shaken up by the massive tragedy, but deeply, deeply moved, and took the opportunity to ask for a moment of silence from the crowd at their gig last night at Albuquerque's Hard Rock Pavilion.

The band also posted the following message on their website:
"This incredible machine is more than a tour and more than a set. We have always celebrated music as a healer. While music cannot change the events and losses at the Indiana State Fair, it can hopefully serve as a ritual and a balm to provide comfort and facilitate healing in this time of great sorrow. Our road family experienced its traumas together. While we all scattered to our given families for their comfort, the trauma we experienced together binds us in a unique way that we share only with each other, and those who were there. There is healing in our being together. There is healing in our working together."
And Jennifer Nettles continues:
"Moved by the grief of those families who lost loved ones. Moved by the pain of those who were injured and the fear of their families. Moved by the great heroism as I watched so many brave Indianapolis fans actually run toward the stage to try and help lift and rescue those injured. Moved by the quickness and organization of the emergency workers who set up the triage and tended to the injured. There are no words to process a moment of this magnitude and gravity. There are only prayers for peace in the hearts of the bereft, and prayers of thanksgiving for those who were spared or safe. A piece of our heart is left in that grandstand. May God provide peace and healing to the people of Indianapolis.”
Wow. So truly tragic.
But we couldn't be more proud of them for taking the time to reach out to those affected by the devastating accident. We're sure their words of comfort are very much appreciated.
Stay strong, guys.
May those still injured recover quickly, and may those who lost their lives be at peace, wherever they may be.
This just keeps getting worse.
To catch anyone up, a stage set for Sugarland crashed while fans were waiting to watch the band perform live at the Indiana State Fair.
The crash immediately killed five and injured at least four dozen.
Unfortunately, that death number has just gone up one this Friday morning.
Jennifer Haskell, a 22-year-old college student studying Sports Medicine at Ball State University, passed away earlier today in the hospital.
Our thoughts go out to her friends and family. This is truly tragic. We hope everyone else makes quick recoveries!

It's really upsetting that this keeps happening!
First, the Bluesfest main stage collapsed during a show last month, leaving multiple people injured but no fatalities.
Then, fans were injured and killed over the weekend when a stage set to host Sugarland collapsed at the Indiana State Fair.
Now, another stage has collapsed during a
