Things didn't turn out the way fans expected at a weekend gala with country music legend Randy Travis.

Travis reportedly collapsed on on stage Sunday night during a performance at Huguley Memorial Center's 18th annual Crystal Heart Gala.

According to the Burleson Star, the singer was in the middle of singing his hit, "Three Wooden Crosses" when he stopped and said something about his vocal cords giving out.

He then reportedly tried to join in again but stopped, stumbled and "pitched forward" onto the front of the stage. That is according to witnesses.

Several doctors who were attending the gala jumped to help, the Burleson Star reports. Travis then walked off stage while giving a thumbs up.

In a statement released to NBCDFW.com from Huguley Memorial Medical Center,Jeff Davis, Travis' tour manager, said the singer had a bad reaction to some decongestant allergy medication. And he is resuming his tour as scheduled.

The Gala was being held at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.
