On Saturday (October 9th), country superstar Tim McGraw reportedly experienced some dramatics during his show at the Nugget Event Center in Reno, Nevada. 

According to TMZ, Tim McGraw jumped off the stage to confront some fans who were booing him for forgetting some of the lyrics to his hit single Just to See You Smile. 

Prior to jumping off stage, Tim McGraw told the hecklers that were mocking him if they didn’t like his performance to just leave. But apparently, that wasn’t enough. He then jumped off the stage and got into the couple of hecklers’ faces. Despite the confrontation, the country superstar went back on stage and finished his performance. 

Tim McGraw did tell the concertgoers he has been shooting the Yellowstone prequel 1883 for 48 hours straight. While also addressing a change in his appearance, Tim McGraw stated, “I’m not going through a midlife crisis. I don’t know if you all know this but we’re shooting a film called 1883 and so I have to dye my beard. So, it’s not a midlife crisis. The jeans might be a midlife crisis, but not the beard.”

Some of the cast from 1883 were also at the concert.
