Country music superstar Tim McGraw collapsed on stage at a recent festival in Dublin, Ireland, unable to return to his fans. McGraw had just finished performing his song "Humble and Kind" during his co-headlining set with Hill when he dropped to his knees, then sat down onstage and needed assistance getting up and offstage.

"He's been super dehydrated", Hill said. "We've all been a little bit dehydrated, traveling so much, and he's been super dehydrated, and I apologize, but I made the decision that he can not come back out onstage".

After the audience chanted "we love Tim", Hill sang an a capella rendition of What a Friend We Have in Jesus, before the lights came up and the audience was ushered out.

The gig, at Dublin's 3 Arena was the final date of a three-day, three-city tour of the United Kingdom, as part of the Country to Country festival.

"He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine", the statement continues. The country couple's "Soul2Soul The World Tour" picks up on May 31 in Richmond, Virginia.
