Tim McGraw Takes a Tumble Onstage in Lake Tahoe [Watch]
Tim McGraw took a nasty-looking spill live onstage in front of an audience at a recent gig in Nevada, but the country superstar dealt with it like the world class pro that he is.
The 49-year-old singer was performing at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena on July 23 when the accident happened. As you can see in the video above, McGraw was right down in front of the stage among the fans at the edge, singing directly to them with the mic in his right hand while holding onto an iron rail with his left hand for support.
He was singing his classic hit “All I Want Is a Life,” and everything was fine until he stepped away from the rail, and apparently missed a step down in the crowd amidst all the excitement. McGraw very suddenly goes down at about :29 in the fan-shot video above, and disappears from view for a couple of seconds before you can see him reach up and pull himself back up with his left arm. He doesn’t miss more than a couple of lines of lyrics before he regains his feet and resumes singing as if nothing had happened, pointing at some fans nearby and high-fiving them as he goes on with the show.
McGraw has been out touring to support his most recent album, Damn Country Music, which has continued his seemingly never-ending winning streak at country radio. One of the singles from the album, “Humble and Kind,” is one of the most impactful songs of the year, not only scoring McGraw another No. 1 hit, but also setting him up for what will very likely become a career single. His latest single from the album is “How I’ll Always Be.”
Hopefully McGraw will keep a close watch where he’s stepping when he takes the stage to headline one of the nights of WE Fest in August.
