    Talk about making an exit.

    Country star Randy Travis fainted in the middle of a song Sunday at the Crystal Heart Gala, an annual benefit for the Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

    Luckily, a Warner Music Nashville spokesperson tells E! News that the singer, "is fine and continues on his tour in celebration of his 25th Anniversary."

    But what happened?

    According to Travis' doctors, Jeff Beeson and Steve Davis, medical directors of the Emergency Physicians Advisory Board in Fort Worth, who were in attendance during the concert yesterday, it was a mix of many things working against each other.

    "Mr. Travis had been struggling with laryngitis that resulted from chronic allergies and had taken multiple over-the-counter allergy medicines. During the performance, Mr. Travis was overcome by a combination of dehydration, over-the-counter allergy medications, and caffeine use," they tell E! News.

    "This, combined with the heat of the stage lights, caused him to pass out. Mr. Travis was immediately provided medical care and after regaining consciousness, walked off the stage on his own power. He was evaluated by us in his tour bus. Mr. Travis' vital signs were all stable. Mr. Travis went home to recover. Today he is taking our advice and resting."

    Well, that's great news. Even better news: He will continue his 25th Anniversay tour this Saturday in Bristol, Tenn., at Viking Hall.
