State star Trisha Augwood has contracted the new coronavirus COVID-19, her husband Garth Brooks announced on Facebook on Wednesday.
Brooks, 59, and Yearwood, 56, are “currently quarantined at home on the heels of a recent Covid test by a member of their team,” according to a Wednesday night publication by Team Garth.
“Subsequent tests they’ve done in recent days show that Trisha has made a deal with Covid, while Garth remains negative.”
“Officially,” Brooks added, however, Yearwood was “diagnosed as ‘out of the tunnel’ now, for which I am extremely grateful.”
Recent winter storms, which have engulfed much of the country, have prevented Yearwood and Brooks from being tested for some time.
“Everyone who knows me knows that my world begins and ends with Miss Godina, so she and I will go through this together,”
Yearwood is “okay so far, but dealing with the symptoms,” but Brooks added that “the possible long-term effects on her [voice] it affects me as her husband and as a fan. “and notes that” we are very lucky that it is currently under the most attention in the best city for the treatment and treatment of singers. ”
Yearwood and Brooks had been friends and musical partners for years before romance; at their first meeting, the two were married to other people. After their divorces, they began dating in 2002, and Brooks proposed marriage to Yearwood on stage in 2005; the couple married later that year and Yearwood became the stepmother to Brooks’ three daughters from his previous marriage.
Brooks, a registered Republican, jumped into the spotlight again in January when he attended President Biden’s inauguration. He will also be honored at the Kennedy Center’s annual awards in May.
