Randy Travis is resting at home today after passing out mid-song during The Crystal Heart Gala, an annual benefit for the Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Ironically, the 52- year-old was performing in a room full of doctors when he fainted, so help was nearby. Drs. Jeff Beeson and Steve Davis rushed to his aid.

“Mr. Travis was overcome by a combination of dehydration, over-the-counter allergy medications, and caffeine use,” a spokesperson for Randy Travis said in a statement to The Associated Press today. “This, combined with the heat of the stage lights, caused him to pass out.”

Travis reportedly walked off stage without aid and was examined on his tour bus.

“Mr. Travis went home to recover. Today he is taking our advice and resting,” the statement said.

Travis will resume his tour as planned on Saturday in Bristol, TN.
