Tyler Hubbard, one half of the country-music duo Florida Georgia Line, says he’s tested positive for Covid-19. The Georgia half of the band, known for mega-hits like “Cruise,” “H.O.L.Y.,” and “May We All,” posted the news of his diagnosis on Instagram on Monday, saying he’s currently asymptomatic and is quarantining on his tour bus away from his wife and children.
“Got the Rona. Asymptomatic. Quarantining on bus. Miss my family. Writing songs. Thankful,” Hubbard wrote alongside a photo of him outside his bus, parked near his home’s garage. On Sunday, he quizzed his followers with another photo of the bus, asking them to guess why it’s in the driveway. “Some of y’all guessed it…,” he wrote on Monday.
Florida Georgia Line, made up of Hubbard and Florida’s Brian Kelley, are scheduled to perform their song “Long Live” at Wednesday night’s CMA Awards in Nashville. There’s no word yet if the performance will go ahead as planned. Emails to the CMA and to a rep for Florida Georgia Line weren’t returned.
Hubbard is the second scheduled CMA Awards performer to test positive this week. Lee Brice also received a Covid-19 diagnosis and will no longer be appearing at Wednesday’s show, where he was to duet with Carly Pearce on “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” Charles Kelley, of the country trio Lady A, will join Pearce instead.
Rehearsals for the CMA Awards are currently underway. The show will air live November 11th on ABC from the Music City Center in Nashville.
