WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE artist RANDY TRAVIS performed on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th, for the HUGULEY MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER’s 18th annual CRYSTAL HEART GALA in FORT WORTH, TEXAS. According to the BURLESON STAR, TRAVIS collapsed while performing his song, “Three Wooden Crosses.”
The article reports, TRAVIS apologized for his vocal chords giving out, while the back-up band continued to play without him. He then attempted to sing the chorus, and fell forward onto the front of the stage.
After the incident, the ASSOCIATED PRESS stated, “MR. TRAVIS was overcome by a combination of dehydration, over-the-counter allergy medications, and caffeine use. This, combined with the heat of the stage lights, caused him to pass out."
