Brad Paisley Takes a Tumble During Final Night of Tour
Brad Paisley wrapped up his American Saturday Night tour with a bang in Charleston, S.C. Saturday night. He was at the tail end of performing his encore finale, 'Alcohol,' when he tripped on stage and fell, slamming into the stage set ... all the while keeping a tight grip on his guitar. He got up, waved goodbye to the crowd, went backstage and was promptly taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
Doctors checked Brad out, and the performer even received a CAT scan to make sure nothing was broken, as he reportedly felt like he had broken a rib. He was released early Sunday morning with only some bad bruises (and possibly a bit of a bruised ego!).
The 37-year-old kept fans updated with several tweets, even posting a photo of himself consulting with doctors, joking that they told him he "was a very brave boy." Wife Kimberly Williams Paisley, worried about her husband, wrote on her Twitter page, "Praying for my husband tonight. Hope he didn't hurt himself too badly. I love that clumsy clown." Once she knew he was going to be okay, Kim asked if anyone had a video of the fall, and her request was fulfilled via YouTube.com.
The West Virginia native has a few days to recover at home in Nashville before heading to Reliant Stadium for his show at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 11.
Brad may want to put a few safety precautions in place before he kicks off his upcoming H20 trek this summer.
