Garth Brooks Announces He Is COVID-19 Negative As Wife Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive

“I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together,” says the country icon.

Country music legend, Garth Brooks announced on Wednesday, February 24 that his wife Trisha Yearwood contracted COVID-19.

The couple has been quarantining together at their Tennessee home after a member of their team tested positive for the virus. “The Queen and I have now tested twice,” Brooks told Billboard. “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”

While the news just broke about Yearwood’s positive results, a Garth Brooks representative took to Twitter earlier this month to notify fans about upcoming events.

“Due to someone on their team testing positive for COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are canceling everything and testing and quarantining for two weeks,” says Team Garth.


In the meantime, the icon is staying on-call and supporting his wife until she makes a full and healthy recovery. “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” he included in his most recent statement. The star also admits that he has numerous concerns about possible long-term effects.

“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,” he adds.

However, the country singer and songwriter has high hopes for his lovely wife, as he called her “a fighter” and shares that she has been following doctor’s orders and doing everything right. “I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”

Send your warm wishes and prayers to their family by sending a get-well-soon message to @garthbrooks and @trishayearwood.
