Garth Brooks has revealed that his wife Trisha Yearwood tested positive for COVID-19, but as he says, her condition is improving.
Garth, who has tested negative, said on his Facebook, “The Queen and I have now tested twice. Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”
It was the severe winter weather in Tennessee that prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.
Brooks says, “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together. And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”
He continues, “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me. If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing. 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.”
