Tim McGraw recently showed his angrier side following a concert gone wrong.
According to reports, the country singer got into a confrontation with some of his audience during his concert at the Nugget Event Center in Reno, Nevada, on Saturday night.
During the performance, McGraw seemed to be struggling with his voice and then began forgetting the lyrics to his hit tune, “Just To See You Smile.” Some fans weren’t having it and began mocking the country singer.
At first, the country singer shuns the first wave of boos, but the criticism only seems to get under his skin some more as the heckles continue. Then, suddenly, as seen in the video shared by the publication, McGraw loses it!
He asked them why they were booing him and went as far as to tell them that if they didn’t like his performance, they could leave. Then, taking things to another level, he stopped the show and went into the crowd to confront the fans heckling him.
The clip didn’t emphasize exactly what he said, but he seemed pretty furious at fans’ reactions to his slip-up. Some fans vocalized their anger at the 54-year-old halting the show.
An Explanation For The Outburst
After the heckling and McGraw’s outburst, he took to the stage again to kickstart the concert but not without giving an explanation for the mishap.
The singer explained to his fans that he wasn’t going through a mid-life crisis but had been up for about 48 hours filming his upcoming movie, the “Yellowstone” prequel titled “1883.” He joked to the audience:
If I forget words tonight, just know I’m old. And I’m shooting a movie and I’m working 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.
Things reportedly settled down after the address, and McGraw was allowed to finish up the show.

A Heartwarming Birthday Tribute
The concert scandal comes weeks after McGraw paid a heartfelt tribute to his wife Faith Hill in celebration of her 54th birthday.
The “Blind Side” actor shared a video of his wife’s music to her 1999 song, “Breathe,” alongside a clip of him gushing about their marriage during an interview with Diane Sawyer.
McGraw gushed that he was still smitten by his wife after all these years and declared he wouldn’t change anything about their for the world.
