Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard has tested positive for COVID-19.
The singer turned to Instagram to confirm the news on Monday morning (November 9), sharing a selfie in front of his tour bus parked on the driveway to his home.
"Some of y’all guessed it..... Got the Rona," he captioned the post. The singer went on to write that he is asymptomatic and quarantining on the bus, adding that he is missing his family, "writing songs," and "thankful."
Hubbard first hinted at the possibility in an Instagram post shared on Sunday (November 8), featuring the family's dog sitting outside in front of his quarantine set up.
"Any ideas why I would have my tour bus parked in the drive way?" he captioned the post.
Hubbard was scheduled to perform at the CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, November 11 with bandmate Brian Kelley. At this time, the Country Music Association has not announced who will fill in for Florida Georgia Line.
In addition to Hubbard, fellow country singer, Lee Brice, also tested positive for COVID-19. Brice was scheduled to take the stage alongside Carly Pearce to perform their hit duet, "I Hope You're Happy Now." A spokesperson confirmed that Brice tested positive ahead of rehearsals for the annual awards show and received his results before arriving onsite for any pre-CMA events.
This year's CMA Awards will not happen in front of a live in-person audience due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, however nominated artists, performers and presenters are expected to gather together for the event, while maintaining social distancing practices.
The awards will broadcast live from Nashville's Music City Center on Wednesday, November 11, at 8PM ET on ABC. A complete list of nominees can be seen here.
