One of the biggest stars in country music collapsed during a live concert appearance and was unable to finish the concert. Rolling Stone reports that Tim McGraw collapsed during a performance Sunday night in Dublin.
“McGraw had reportedly just finished singing his Number One hit ‘Humble & Kind’ when he dropped to his knees and then sat down,” Rolling Stone reports. “McGraw’s wife Faith Hill returned to address the crowd about her husband’s condition and said it was her decision to halt his performance.”
The report quotes Hill telling the audience: “He’s been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage.”
McGraw was performing as part of the Country to Country festival in the U.K.
A representative for the singer issued a statement saying: “Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show. He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine. He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon.”
The Rolling Stone report adds: “McGraw had performed Friday night in London and Saturday night in Glasgow as part of C2C, a three-day, three-city country-music festival. His next scheduled concert is May 31st in Richmond, Virginia, as part of the Soul2Soul Tour with Hill.”
