Positive COVID-19 test sidelines FGL’s Tyler Hubbard at CMAs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line has become the second performer to be missed on Wednesday owing to the COVID-19 program of the CMA Awards.

On his Instagram profile, Hubbard posted on Monday a message stating he was quarantine and asymptomatic in his bus outside his home country.

It came days after Lee Brice announced that he had been checking for good stuff and that he would not appear on the show ABC from Nashville, Tennessee.

In a release, the Country Music Association said that while it was misleading both musicians did not participate, it was an indication that their COVID-19 protections worked.

"In advance of anyone entering our footprint, we have been extremely diligent in our testing process," the statement added.

"Every entity is checked and several are tested again and again over the week.

There is not just the usage of PPE (personal protective equipment) but also of necessity psychological and physical isolation."

Whilst CMA CEO Sarah Trahern promises that the show would not have a regular audience of viewers because of the pandemic, he will get country stars together in one space while leaving them physically distant.
