Randy Travis Collapses On 25th Anniversary Tour
In the middle of performing ’Three Wooden Crosses,’ Randy Travis collapsed onstage while performing at the Huguley Memorial Medical Center’s 18th annual Crystal Heart Gala in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday night.
Taste of Country reports that just after Randy Travis said “My vocal chords are giving out on me,” he stumbled and then fell face forward onto the stage. Randy’s publicity camp announced “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.” Eventually, he got up and gave a thumbs up to the audience before leaving the stage.
DFW.com checked in with Travis’ tour manager, Jeff Davis, on Monday morning following the incident. “He is all right, he had a bad reaction to some allergy medicine he took earlier in the day; it had some decongestant in it. The doctors said a cup of coffee and the decongestant combined [to cause the collapse], and it was one of those weird things. The doctors checked him out and he was fine. They examined him immediately and helped him how he needed to be helped. It was just very unfortunate timing.”
