Get well @thevinceneil!" Trunk tweeted. "Vince slipped and fell off the stage tonight at Monsters on the Mountain here in Pigeon Forge. Vince had been moving & singing great before the accident. He's at hospital now getting care & X Rays. More when I hear."

In multiple videos posted on social media, the musician can be seen clearly clapping at the edge of the stage with his guitar before suddenly disappearing from view. Reportedly, Neil's guitarist Dana Strum told the crowd that Neil was being treated for broken ribs from the accident.
That explains why I lost track of him in this video. I apparently captured the fall at the end of this clip. Totally agree that he looked great and was singing great. Hope the X-rays are clear and you bounce back quickly @thevinceneil pic.twitter.com/jfWT6c3rVb

Neil one of the headliner acts for the three-day music festival. Earlier this year, he suffered another setback on the stage when he was headlining the Boone River Valley Festival in Iowa with his solo band during his first post-pandemic show. Neil's voice gave out on the band's 14th song, causing him to abruptly leave the stage mid-show.
