Tim McGraw suddenly collapses on stage while performing in Ireland

The 50-year-old country singer was rushed off the stage.

Tim McGraw collapsed on stage last night (March 11) while performing in Dublin, Ireland.

The country musician had just finished performing his 2016 song ‘Humble and Kind’ when he fell onto his knees and had to sit down before being taken off the stage.

Faith Hill, McGraw’s wife and recording partner, spoke to the crowd saying that she had decided to end the performance. She said: “He’s been super dehydrated. I apologise, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage”.

Responding to chants calling out for McGraw, Hill ended the concert with a solo rendition of “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”.

Speaking to E! News, eyewitnesses revealed that numerous crew members rushed McGraw off the stage once he’d collapsed: “The crowd was really worried, like, ‘What just happened?'” whereas Hill “didn’t seem that worried or distracted”.

Another witness speaking to BBC, said: “I thought he was taking in the applause while sitting down after singing ‘Humble and Kind.’ 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

Earlier this year, Ed Sheeran has been named in a lawsuit in a case of alleged copyright infringement for a song he co-wrote with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

‘The Rest Of Our Life’ became an international hit for McGraw and Hill, but now Australian duo Sean Carey and Beau Golden claimed that it was ‘blatantly copied’ from their 2014 track ‘When I Found You’, written for Jasmine Rae.
