Apparently during the Billy Currington set, a huge wind storm came up and collapsed the stage. There was one person killed and more than 15 injured. I’m hearing that Kevin Costner is of the injured….but that’s probably not true! Another rumor is that one of Currington’s band members is missing in the debris, but I think a lot of these rumors are going to be cleared up in the next couple of hours.
- All of Sunday’s events have been cancelled, including Doc Walker and Tim McGraw
- Over 75 people were injured in the stage collapse, 2 critical.
- One person had died.
UPDATE #6: Sorta good news: Someone at the jamboree has won $36,844 on a 50/50 winning ticket: 19265. If you hold that ticket, call 780-672-3640
Here is the video clip of the press conference. It sounds like everyone did everything right.
