The Truth About Trisha Yearwood's COVID-19 Diagnosis

Garth Brooks has announced that his wife, singer Trisha Yearwood, has tested positive for COVID-19. As People reported, the country music superstar released a statement confirming that he and "the Queen" have now been tested twice. "Officially, she's diagnosed as 'on her way out of the tunnel' now, though, which I'm extremely thankful for," Brooks reassured fans. He also revealed that, although he tested negative, he plans to remain in quarantine with his wife. "Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood," Brooks declared, "so she and I will ride through this together."

Per Billboard, Brooks asked for fans to send prayers and good thoughts to Yearwood since she is still experiencing COVID-19 symptoms."If anyone asks, that's what you can do for her. That's what I'm doing," he added. The country singer also praised his wife's tenacity, saying that anyone who knows Yearwood is aware "that she's a fighter and she's been doing everything right." Brooks affirmed that he is certain "we'll walk out the other side of this thing together."

"She's tough. She's stronger than me," Brooks continued. But that does not mean Brooks isn't worried about the lingering impact of his wife's illness.

Garth Brooks is worried about the 'long-term effects' on Trisha Yearwood's voice

Garth Brooks did admit that he was worried about the toll COVID-19 might take on Trisha Yearwood's vocal ability, as well as her overall health. "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," Brooks confessed. "We're very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers." The pair began quarantining after a member of their team tested positive, according to Today, but had to wait a week to be tested due to severe weather conditions.

As Billboard noted, this is not the first time that the country music stars have been forced to quarantine. In July 2020, their family was hit by coronavirus for the first time as Allie Colleen, Brooks' daughter, tested positive. Brooks and Yearwood then had to postpone an online concert later that month because they had potentially been exposed to the virus.

"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," a press release announcing the postponement read. Per TMZ, a representative for Brooks confirmed that the country star will be pausing his weekly online show, Inside Studio G, until further notice.
