Lee Brice to Miss CMA Awards Due to Covid

Lee Brice tested positive for COVID-19, according to The Associated Press.

Lee will not perform at the CMA Awards on Nov. 11 as a result. He was slated to take the stage with Carly Pearce to sing their No. 1 hit, “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”

A representative for Lee told the AP that he is “in good spirits and not experiencing any symptoms.”

Lee was tested and received his results before arriving onsite for the show’s rehearsal or activities. This year’s show will take place at Nashville’s Music City Center without an in-person audience, but more than 30 artists are expected to be onsite to perform.

“Lee would like to thank the CMAs and all of his incredible fans for his nominations and is wishing his fellow nominees an incredible evening celebrating the best of country music,” according to a statement from Lee’s representative per the AP.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
