Country music star Tim McGraw collapsed on stage during a performance in Dublin over the weekend.

The 50-year-old singer was performing at the Country to Country (C2C) music festival on Sunday night.

It is reported he unexpectedly dropped to his knees while singing his single Humble & Kind.

McGraw then sat down on the stage, before the concert was halted so he could receive medical attention backstage.

His wife, singer Faith Hill, can be seen in a video on a fan’s Instagram page saying, “He’s been super dehydrated. I apologise, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out on stage.”

A representative for McGraw later said in a statement to Rolling Stone: "Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show. 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 had performed on Friday night in London and Saturday night in Glasgow as part of C2C, a three-day, three-city country-music festival.

A 29-city Soul2Soul tour is scheduled in the US on May 31 in Richmond, Virginia.
