Singer Jimmy Buffett was released from the hospital Thursday, one day after he fell off stage and hit his head during a concert in Australia.

Witnesses said they heard a "crack" sound when Buffett's head hit the floor.

Buffett lay on the floor in front of the first row of seating waiting for paramedics and an ambulance to arrive, and he was rushed to hospital half an hour later.

Buffett was knocked unconscious, but doctors said he avoided serious injury.
