Luke Bryan is opening up about his onstage fall.

While performing at the Coast City Country Festival in Vancouver, Canada, on Saturday, April 20, the country singer, 47, took a tumble after he thought he tripped over a fan’s phone.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet after the Monday, April 22 episode of American Idol, Bryan revealed that he had just visited a chiropractor before the fall.

“Ironically, last week, I was having back trouble to the point where I had to get a chiropractor to the room," the American Idol judge told the outlet.

"[Anyway], so when I hit the ground, I was like, 'Oh!' The first thing [I thought] was, 'Oh God, all the work I did to get my back feeling better is out!'" he admitted with a laugh.

Meanwhile, Bryan also said that he didn’t think it was a phone that caused the fall.

“Everybody is reporting [about the] cellphone, but I was kind of hamming that up," Bryan said. "I don't think it was a cellphone. I think it was just slick,” he said.

In a video shared by TMZ, Bryan appeared unhurt after the fall and immediately sat up with a grin on his face.

"Hold up! Did anybody get that?" he said at the time. He then passed the object to a fan who was apologizing to him. "It's OK," he told the person, before joking, "My lawyer will be calling."
