Country singer Drake White was hospitalized after nearly collapsing on stage in Virginia on Friday night.

He was about 15 minutes into his set at the Elmwood Park amphitheater in Roanoke, Va., when the incident happened, People reported.

The 35-year-old “Makin’ Me Look Good Again” singer stumbled on stage and was caught by a band member and transported to a local hospital.

White wrote a note to fans on Twitter later that night to assure them he’s OK.

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

White is on tour as the opening act for Scotty McCreery, a country singer who won the 10th season of “American Idol.”
