During Monday’s (July 13) episode of the web series Inside Studio G, Garth Brooks shared that he and his wife Trisha Yearwood tested negative for the coronavirus. This news comes after a team member’s possible COVID-19 exposure caused a one-week postponement of a Facebook Live concert.
“We all tested,” Brooks says. “Everybody tested negative, including the possible exposure, which ended up not being a possible exposure … So we’re back.”
The concert, #GarthRequestLive2, took place on Tues., July 14 and featured an epic Bob Seger cover by Brooks.
Brooks and Yearwood have been proponents of livestream concerts since the coronavirus pandemic began, with noteworthy events including a late March Facebook concert, the April 1 CBS special Garth & Trisha Live!, a May 2 set at the Grand Ole Opry House and Brooks’ late June drive-in concert which followed social distancing guidelines and aired at over 300 theaters in North America.
