New York: Country singer Tim McGraw smacked a female fan after she got too close for comfort with him during a performance last weekend in Atlanta.
Video of the incident shows McGraw, 47, walking down the stage at Aaron`s Amphitheatre singing `Truck Yeah` as fans sing along and scream.
But standing near the edge of the walkway, one fan cannot seem to contain herself and grabs his leg once, then gets even closer, suggets reports.
McGraw stops singing and reaches out with his left hand, slapping the woman in the face.
A spokesperson for the singer, said, "Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn`t let go as he was moving through the crowd.
"He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show."
