Dwight Yoakam Forced To End Show Early After Suffering A “Spell Of Heat Exhaustion”

Legendary Country Music Star Dwight Yoakam Experienced A Scary Health Incident Over The Weekend.

Due to heat exhaustion, Yoakam ended his performance at the Railbird Festival early on Sunday, June 2. Yoakam was performing at a weekend tour, which concluded on Sunday, following performances at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. on Friday and the Bristol, TN/VA In the Pines Festival on Saturday.

The Husband And Father, Who Welcomed His First Child At 63, Initially Left The Stage Shortly Into His Set, Citing Overheating And Dehydration As The Reasons.

He returned to the stage approximately 10 minutes later.

It appeared that everything was back on track, but after performing just two more songs, the 67-year-old country star had to leave the stage once again. This left disappointed and concerned fans sitting in the rain, wondering what had happened.

According to Alabama Life & Culture, a fan revealed that Yoakam told the audience, “In 38 years, this is the second time I had to talk off stage. I thought I was going to pass out.”

As A Result Of The Health Scare, The “Fast As You” Singer Had To End His Show Earlier Than Planned.

Following the incident, Yoakam updated fans through a social media post that he was “absolutely fine” and expressed gratitude for the audience’s support during the challenging performance.

“Dwight would like to thank all the fans at Railbird for braving the elements with him this afternoon. With the combination of heat and humidity, Dwight had a quick spell of heat exhaustion but he is absolutely fine and appreciates the fans singing along to help carry him through to the end of his set!”

In the statement, Yoakam also thanked the Railbird staff and EMTs for their quick response and support.

Fans flooded his post with supportive and encouraging comments, expressing their well-wishes for his recovery.

“So thankful you’re doing well Dwight. You are amazing!”

“Glad to hear your doing better.”

“So glad to hear. We were there and worried for him.”

“Dwight, take care of yourself! We love you!”

“So glad to hear all is good. Hoping staff and participants are well and good too! Watch the heat it’ll sneak up on you fast!”
