Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood – currently quarantining at home on the heels of a recent positive Covid test by a member of their team – are going to be spending a bit more time there. Subsequent tests they’ve had in recent days have indicated Trisha has contracted Covid-19, while Garth remains negative.

“The Queen and I have now tested twice,” he confirms, adding, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.” Severe winter weather in Tennessee prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.

“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” he says, explaining he’ll be out of the spotlight and not doing things like his weekly Inside Studio G conversation on Facebook for a little while. “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.”

Trisha is doing okay so far, but is dealing with symptoms – “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me,” Garth says, though he welcomes any prayers and good thoughts anyone wants to send her way. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing,” he says. “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,” he continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
