Carrie Underwood wrapped her Storyteller Tour last night (Nov. 29) in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Since launching the tour in January, Carrie completed 92 shows, visited seven countries and performed for 1 million fans. The tour sold out arenas across the U.S. and Canada, including New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Carrie also made stops in Sweden, Norway, Scotland, England and Ireland as part of Europe’s biggest country music festival, Country to Country.

A donation of $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. dates of the tour will be contributed to the C.A.T.S Foundation (Checotah Animal, Town, and School) established by Carrie in 2009 to help aid causes like education and literacy programs in Checotah, Okla.

Carrie will head to New Zealand and Australia in December to join Keith Urban on his Ripcord World Tour 2016.

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

A couple of weeks ago Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood announced they were going into quarantine because one of their team members tested positive for COVID.

As fans expected to the see the super star couple resume their public events, news comes that their isolation will last a bit longer as Trisha has now also tested positive. Garth is testing negative as of now.

Speaking on the matter, Garth says “The Queen and I have now tested twice.” In regards to Trisha’s diagnosis, Garth shares, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”

The snow and ice storm that the Nashville area experienced last week prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.

Garth shared “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together, and anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.” Garth fully admits, “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me.”

Garth says, though he welcomes any prayers and good thoughts anyone wants to send Trisha’s way. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing. Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” Garth continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
