Country music star Tim McGraw collapsed on stage in Ireland Sunday night. 

McGraw was in the British Isles with his wife, Faith Hill, for a three-day concert run in Britain, Scotland, and Ireland. The two will begin a U.S. tour in May.

A representative of McGraw said he was suffering dehydration and will be fine.

McGraw was in the middle of singing “Humble & Kind” when he suddenly dropped to his knees and took a seat, shocking the crowd. Local medical staff immediately attended to McGraw.

“Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show,” a spokesperson said. “He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon.”

The surprise fall occurred toward the end of the set.

While fans missed out on a full show, they at least got the re-assurance that McGraw was fine. A fan page for Faith Hill shared a video of McGraw’s wife telling the crowd that her husband would not come back on stage.

“He’s been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out on stage.”

The audience showered McGraw with support by chanting “We Love Tim” before being ushered out of the stadium.

Fans react

An audience member told the BBC the fall was “a bit of a shock.”

“I thought he was taking in the applause while sitting down after singing Humble and Kind,” Del Crookes said.

“But when a spotlight was switched on him, he was slumped on his knees on the left-hand side of the stage. The light was quickly turned off and you could see his crew helping him off – and the band ran over as well.

“It was about another 20 minutes before Faith Hill came out to say the show was ending early.”

McGraw, Hill to keep touring

McGraw and Hill were in the British Isles for the annual Country to Country festival. The two had already performed Friday night in London and Saturday in Glasgow before his Sunday night accident at the 3 Arena in Dublin.

Hill said the couple and their crew had been dehydrated by “traveling so much.”

McGraw, 50, made headlines recently for supporting gun control.

“Thank you @Dicks for taking a stand to promote a meaningful discussion for the safety of our kids!” he tweeted March 3.

McGraw and Hill, who have been married for 21 years, released the collaborative album “The Rest of our Life” in 2017. The country power couple will begin their 29-city tour, Soul2Soul, in the U.S. on May 31 with a show in Richmond, Virginia.
