Tim McGraw played a show Saturday night in Reno, Nevada when a tense moment took place between the country singer and a few audience members.
According to TMZ, Tim was singing “Just to See You Smile” when he appeared to forget the lyrics and sounded “off.” After a few fans started to heckle the country star, he called them out and told them they could leave if they didn’t like the show. The publication also reports that Tim “jumped off the stage, and got in the couple’s face.”
A concert goer shared footage saying, “Tim Mcgraw about to fight fan.”
Below in the comments the user wrote, “@thetimmcgraw I didn’t post this blast you or the show. I am new to country music and absolutely had a great time. I stand for you sticking up against the trolls in the audience that feel entitled to troll like they do on social media. 🙌👏”
After Tim resumed the show he later reportedly told the crowd, “I’m not going through a mid-life crisis. I don’t know how many of y’all know this, but we’re shooting a film called ‘1883’, and I have to dye my beard for this film.
“[Last] week, we shot 48 hours straight, and we showed up to do a show for you guys tonight because we love you, thank y’all for being here.
“[If] I forget words tonight, just know I’m old, and I’m shootin’ a movie, and I’m workin’ with my wife. There are a lot of variables in that situation, so if I forget the words, sing along with me and help me out.”
Tim has not publicly commented on the incident.
