Country singer Tim McGraw has been rushed back to the US after collapsing on stage during a performance in Dublin, Ireland.
The 50-year-old had just wrapped up a rendition of his 2016 song "Humble and Kind" when he fell to his knees, before sitting down and eventually retreating from the stage entirely. His wife, fellow country artist Faith Hill, spoke to the crowd. "He's been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage."
When the crowd began chanting for the singer to come back out on stage, Hill took it upon herself to close the show with a solo rendition of "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." Concert goers spoke to E! News, confirming that the collapse seemed to come from nowhere. "The crowd was really worried, like, 'What just happened?'," one eyewitness told the channel. "But Hill didn't seem that worried or distracted."
McGraw, one of the biggest names in Country, has now touched down on US soil to presumably get some rest and recuperate from the stresses of the road. Earlier this year, it was reported that the couple is being sued for copyright infringement, along with Ed Sheeran for the song "The Rest of Our Life". It was an international hit for Hill and McGraw last year, but Australian duo Sean Carey and Beau Golden claim it was shamelessly copied from their 2014 track "When I Found You", performed by Jasmine Rae.
McGraw, Hill, and Sheeran are named in the suit, along with Ed's writing partners Johnny McDaid, Steve Mac, and Amy Wadge. Crey and Golden are reportedly seeking an impressive $5 million dollars in damages, as well as asking for the song to be permanently blocked from further release and radio play. Richard Busch is defending the country couple, having won the now landmark trial of Marvin Gaye's family against Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."
