Drake White was hospitalized on Friday night (Aug. 16) after almost collapsing onstage during a performance in Roanoke, Virginia.

White reportedly stumbled and was caught by one of his bandmates about 15 minutes into his set before being transported to a local hospital. He tweeted out a message to fans to keep them posted and thank them for their support.

"Hey friends- sorry we had to cut it short tonight," he wrote. "I’m getting checked out by some of Roanoke’s finest docs and will keep you posted," he tweeted. "Thanks for your prayers and continued support. Love ya!"

White was opening for Scotty McCreery, and he currently has tour dates scheduled across the US and Australia. There's no word yet on if he plans on canceling or postponing any of those dates after the medical incident. Check out his tweet below.
