Country singer-songwriter Tim McGraw worried fans on Sunday, March 11, after he collapsed onstage during a concert in Dublin, Ireland.
The 50-year-old was on the middle of performing the song "Humble & Kind," from his 2015 album Damn Country Music, when he suddenly dropped to his knees and sat down. His wife, Faith Hill, went onstage and addressed the crowd, telling them that the show is over. She also assured fans that the country icon is in perfect health, but he collapsed due to dehydration.
In Good Health
"He's been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage," Hill told the crowd as reported by Rolling Stone.
McGraw was in Ireland as part of the Country to Country festival which was held in Dublin from Friday, March 9, to Sunday, March 11. Other performers at the event included Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town.
McGraw and Hill were the headliners and the final act to close the country music festival on Sunday night.
A representative for the singer reiterated that McGraw collapsed due to dehydration, but assured fans that he was given ample care backstage.
"He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine," they told the publication. "He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon."
McGraw also performed on Friday night in London and Saturday in Glasgow as part of the country music festival.
Tim McGraw And Faith Hill Collaboration
McGraw will next appear in Richmond, Virginia as part of the Soul2Soul World Tour on May 31. With his wife, Hill, the country legend will be performing 27 concerts in major cities across North America including Baltimore, Uniondale, Springfield, Sioux Falls, Seattle, Salt Lake City, and Phoenix.
The tour will wrap up at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California on July 22. Tickets are now on sale via Ticketmaster.
McGraw and Hill released their first collaborative album titled The Rest Of Our Life in November 2017. They released the lead single, "Speak to a Girl," in March and peaked at the 6th spot of Billboard's Hot Country Song in April last year.
The title track, "The Rest Of Our Life," was co-penned by Ed Sheeran. In January, McGraw, Hill, and Sheeran were named in a copyright lawsuit for allegedly copying the 2014 song "When I Found You" written by Sean Carey and Beau Golden.
The complaint was filed in a New York federal court, reported The Hollywood Reporter.
"The copying is, in many instances, verbatim, note-for-note copying of original elements of the Song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer," the complaint stated.
