Brad Paisley is recovering after he tripped on stage and took a tumble during a concert in Charleston, S.C., The Associated Press reports.

Spokeswoman Darlene Bieber said in a news release that the country star was singing his encore finale - "Alcohol" - when he fell Saturday night, but he got back up and finished his show. He was checked out at a Charleston hospital and released early yesterday morning.

Paisley, 37, was left with only some bad bruises, but he wrote on his Twitter page that he "hit hard. And I mean freaking hard."

The singer kept fans updated with several tweets on the Web site, quipping that doctors told him he "was a very brave boy." Paisley's latest album is "American Saturday Night."
