You know when you forget to have enough water and so you crumple onto the floor? This everyday occurrence plagues all of us, which is why when you walk around the city, people around you randomly buckle at the knees and hit the pavement. Just an everyday, normal part of life. Tim McGraw was the latest casualty of “dehydration” and while performing with his wife Faith Hill in Dublin for theirSoul2Soul Tour, was so dehydrated that he collapsed on stage – an occurrence after which Hill announced he would not be performing for the rest of the evening:
He’s been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage.
Dehydration is basically AIDS, and while much progress has been made in finding a cure, the antidote still eludes scientists. This is why there was no way for McGraw to come back out on stage and warble out garbage for his trash fans. Some people think drinking water helps, but that sounds like Yankee bullshit. In 2014 McGraw opened up to Men’s Health about his previous drug and alcohol usage, and said that Hill was the one that tamed his wild stallion self:
I partied too much. And did other things too much. Chemically. No needles or that kind of stuff, but … use your imagination.
When your wife tells you it’s gone too far, that’s a big wake-up call. That, and realizing you’re gonna lose everything you have. Not monetarily, not career-wise, but family-wise.
And then there’s the dehydration. The silent killer. Hill took the stage after her hubby’s drug overdose I mean dehydration to apologize on his behalf. Maybe it’s time for McGraw to go to a treatment facility where they can help him kick the nasty habit of… not drinking enough water.
