McGraw lost his balance during show
Tim McGraw lost his balance and fell off the stage during a performance in the desert over the weekend. The country star was performing his latest single, “7500 OBO,” at the Boots in the Park Festival in Tempe, AZ when he kneeled to one knee on the edge of the stage. As he tried to get up, he lost his balance and fell backwards off stage.
In a video circulating social media, it appears security rescued him and he remained unscathed. He used the opportunity to stand on the security fence to greet fans before making his way back to the stage.
McGraw has been playing festivals since wrapping his own headlining McGraw Tour 2022 earlier this summer. The country star’s next performance is October 14th at the Boots & Brews Country Music Festival in Ventura, CA followed by a headlining appearance at GoldenSky Country Music Festival in Sacramento the next night.
“I’m in the middle of it. I’ve probably mixed eight so far, and will record a few more soon,” he tells Lon Helton of Country Countdown USA. “I’m always looking to beat what I did last time. I’m sure we’ll have something off the new album here before too long. I don’t know when the album will drop.”
Upon its release in August 2020, Here On Earth debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country album chart, marking his fourth straight decade with a No. 1 album on the Billboard Country Album chart. The album was his 19th worldwide No. 1 and his 17th US No. 1, tying him for second most No. 1 albums in the the country, just behind George Strait.
