Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For Covid-19, Garth Brooks Tests Negative
Trisha Yearwood has recently added to a list of celebrities who have tested positive for covid-19, becoming the latest one to confirm having gotten the virus.
According to country music superstar and husband to Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks, the two began quarantining at home following the confirmation that a member of their team have tested positive for the coronavirus. While wife Yearwood tested positive for the virus, Brooks fortunately didn’t get the virus.
Garth Brooks Public Statement On Wife’s Diagnosis
Garth Brooks took to social media to share his wife’s condition and how she is getting the best care a singer can get in the city. “The Queen and I have now tested twice,” he revealed in a statement, adding, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”
He went on stating that “anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together.” He also announced that he’ll be spending some time laying low, and that his weekly conversation with Studio G on Facebook will be put on hold for the meantime.
Their reps noted that the severe winter weather in Tennessee was the cause of the stars not getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure.
“And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right,” he continued gushing out about wife Trisha and how she’s fighting the coronavirus, “so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”
Brooks Calls Out To fans To Join Him In Praying
While he has confirmed that Yearwood is doing alright, he also asked fans for prayers and good thoughts, which is currently all he’s doing himself. He said it would mean so much to him if fans joined him in praying for Yearwood’s recovery, as she is still experiencing some symptoms. He also spoke out about his fear on how the virus might affect her voice, stating, “Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan. We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”

In July 2020, Brooks shared the news that his 24-year-old daughter Allie Colleen suffered a mild case of the coronavirus. A few days later, Brooks and Yearwood postponed their July 7 Facebook concert due to concerns about potential exposure.
“While Garth and Trisha are fine, the Garth/Trisha camp has possibly been exposed to the Covid-19 virus. To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for 2 weeks, and thank everyone for their concern,” the press release announcing the postponement read.
Fans continue to pour out their well-wishes to Garth and pray for Trisha’s complete recovery.
