Brad Paisley Takes a Tumble During SC Concert

Brad Paisley is recovering after he tripped on stage and took a tumble during a concert in South Carolina.

Spokeswoman Darlene Bieber said in a news release that the country star was singing his encore finale - "Alcohol" - when he fell Saturday (March 6) night, but he got back up and finished his show. He was checked out at a Charleston hospital and released early Sunday morning.

Paisley was left with only some bad bruises, but he wrote on his Twitter page that he "hit hard. And I mean freaking hard."

The 37-year-old kept fans updated with several tweets on the Web site, quipping that doctors told him he "was a very brave boy."

Paisley, a native of West Virginia, was performing in Charleston to promote his latest album, "American Saturday Night."
