For Sugarland, the stage collapse at the Indiana State fair will forever be a tragic landmark. Seconds before the band was to take the stage, a powerful gust of wind blew over the entire stage facade. Seven were killed and dozens more were injured in the accident. In the words of lead singer Jennifer Nettles, “There will always be a before that happened and an after that happened.”

Tonight (Nov. 8) on ABC’s ‘In The Spotlight With Robin Roberts,’ Jennifer will be opening up on national television for the first time about the horrific event that forever changed her life. “There are no words for that kind of tragedy,” she admits.

On a much lighter note, the powerhouse singer also addresses all those rumors that she will one day part from Sugarland partner Kristian Bush. “A solo record, yes,” she reveals. “I would love it if I did it; I would love it if he did it. I don’t have a recording date on the books as of yet, but it’s absolutely one thing I would love to do one day.”

Jennifer will be featured on ‘In the Spotlight: All Access Nashville’ tonight at 10:00 PM ET alongside Scotty McCreery, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and Lauren Alaina. Watch a preview of Kenny’s segment here, and click below for a sneak peek at Jennifer’s emotional chat with Robin.
