Tim McGraw collapsed on stage during a concert performance in Dublin on Sunday night.

According to media reports, the singer had just finished performing his hit song “Humble and Kind” toward the end of his set when he sat near his keyboard player, then fell to his knees before he managed to walked off stage.

McGraw’s wife, singer Faith Hill, later came out to tell the audience that McGraw could not continue with the performance at the Country to Country festival, citing dehydration as the reason for his collapse.

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

She then sang an a capella version of “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” before the lights came up and the concert hall was cleared out, the BBC reported.

“Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show,” a rep for the singer said. “He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine. He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon.”

McGraw and Hill are currently on the road for their Soul2Soul tour. Their next scheduled tour date isn’t until May 31 in Richmond, Virginia.

The singer recently made headlines by becoming one of the rare country stars to publicly support for gun control in the U.S., praising the sporting goods retailer Dick’s after it raised the minimum age for gun and ammunition purchases to 21.

“Thank you @Dicks for taking a stand to promote a meaningful discussion for the safety of our kids!” McGraw tweeted, tagging Walmart, Kroger and LL Bean — which subsequently followed Dick’s by issuing similar policies.
