Artists perform many of their hits thousands upon thousands of times. So how can they forget the lyrics to their own songs? While we might not be able to answer that question, the fact is that many artists do, and some have done it more than just a couple of times throughout their careers. Professional artists are human after all, so they also make mistakes.

Tim McGraw had quite a show on October 9 at the Nugget Event Center in Reno, Nevada. The country legend was performing 'Just to See You Smile' when he forgot some of the lyrics! A video shared by TMZ shows that some fans started boo-ing him, and though he tried to brush off the criticism at first, something in him snapped. He identified the hecklers and jumped offstage and into the crowd to confront them. It's unclear what was said, but they definitely weren't kind words. 

McGraw addressed the confrontation to the crowd and explained that he'd been shooting the 'Yellowstone' prequel, '1883,' for 48 hours straight, so lyrics were a little harder to remember at that point. No word on what happened to the hecklers, but McGraw eventually got back on stage and finished the show.
