A drummer fell backwards out of a window during a performance at a Nashville, Tenn. honky tonk on Friday night, FOX59 reports.

The Don Kelley Band was playing “Ghost Riders in the Sky” at Robert’s Western World when drummer Stan Saxon took the scary tumble after standing up at the end of the performance to thank the crowd.

“My ear monitor pulled me back, it felt like somebody grabbed me by the shirt and yanked me to the ground," Saxon told WKRN. "It was like the window wasn’t even there. The next thing I knew I was looking up at shards of glass going, ‘How did I get out here?”

Luckily, the venue is at street level, and Saxon wasn't seriously injured. He even returned to finish the set, then played for another four hours.

“I was thinking the show must go on, I’ve got a job to do,” Saxon said.

He later learned he had broken a rib.
