Brandi Carlile took to Instagram to share an emotional announcement… The “Broken Horses” singer said that she had to drop out of the highly-anticipated Stagecoach lineup after testing positive for COVID-19. Carlile said in her video:

“Hey, buddies. It finally happened. I have the COVID. So, I won’t be able to come to Stagecoach. Ugh, it’s horrible! I’m a few days in, and I have a chest infection, but I think I turned a corner today and I’m starting to feel a little bit better. I just wanted to let everybody know that I’m devastated to be missing you, and I hope that you have a wonderful time out there with all my freakin’ friends. See you on the other side of this trash.”

Fans and fellow artists delivered their well-wishes in the comments, including Maren Morris, who said “Feel better. We will miss you. ✨” Martina McBride wrote, “Hope you feel better soon! ❤️,” and Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk commented, “Feel better love ❤️.” Stagecoach also wished Carlile “a speedy recovery” as organizers of the music festival shared updated set times. Other country artists set to perform throughout the weekend include Thomas Rhett, Jordan Davis, Carrie Underwood, Brothers Osborne and more. See Carlile’s heartfelt message to festival goers here:
