With three decades in the music industry under his belt, Tim McGraw have learned a thing or two about how to keep a show going. During a performance at the Boots in the Park Festival in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday (September 17), McGraw lost his balance and fell off the stage, but impressively turned it into a spontaneous moment of intimacy with his fans.
During his performance, when McGraw’s guitarist unleashed a searing guitar solo, McGraw dropped to one knee on stage with his back to the audience, helping to further spotlight the ax wielder. However, the move also caused the musician to lose his balance. He stumbled backwards, and even though he tried to stay still, he still fell backwards off the edge of the stage. Security personnel quickly rushed to McGraw’s side.
Undeterred, McGraw quickly recovered, stood up and took the opportunity to greet fans standing on the other side of the barricade, reaching over the barrier to shake hands and speak with concertgoers. (Watch Fall and his interaction with fans TikTok.)
Dustin Lynch was also on the Saturday night lineup at the Boots in the Park festival, joining McGraw and Ryan Hurd for a rendition of McGraw’s “I Like It, I Love It.” Lynch shared a snippet of the performance on his own TikTok pagecaptioning the video, “Singing another one with one of my heroes @timmcgraw… keep chasing those dreams everyone.”
Other artists on the Saturday night line-up included Frank Ray and Tenille Arts. McGraw’s upcoming concert appearances include two more festival dates in October: at Boots & Brews in Ventura, California. (October 14), and the GoldenSky Festival in Sacramento (October 15).
