Tracy Byrd and his band were performing at the Brazoria County Fair, when a stage light fell and injured his keyboard player, sending him to the hospital.

The cause of the accident remains unknown, but the Brazoria County Fair Association issued the following statement: “The incident last night is very unfortunate and we are continuing an investigation as safety is a top priority at the Brazoria County Fair. It is our understanding that the injured band member has received treatment and we pray for a speedy recovery.”

You can see in cell phone video obtained by TV station KTRX showing Byrd wrapping up his show and setting his guitar down. That's when the stage lights fall directly onto Vernon Emshoff's keyboard.

As of this posting the injured keyboardist has been released from the hospital.
