• Trisha Yearwood has tested positive for COVID-19, her husband Garth Brooks announced Wednesday on Facebook
  • Brooks tested negative for COVID-19
  • He said she is "currently under the greatest care" as she recovers

Garth Brooks has announced that "his queen" Trisha Yearwood has contracted the coronavirus. The country singer, who tested negative for COVID-19, said his wife is "under the greatest care."

Brooks made the announcement on Facebook on Wednesday. After they were exposed to the virus through a member of their team who recently tested positive for COVID-19, the country stars have been quarantining together at their home in Tennessee.

"The Queen and I have now tested twice," said Brooks. "Officially, she's diagnosed as 'on her way out of the tunnel' now, though, which I'm extremely thankful for."

Yearwood, 56, and Brooks, 59, have been married since 2005. The couple had to wait a week following their initial exposure to COVID-19 for testing because of the severe winter weather in Tennessee.

"Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together," Brooks continued in his post.

Praising his wife, Brooks said that "anyone who knows [Yearwood] 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. She's tough. She's stronger than me."

He said that there is some concern over the potential long-term effects COVID-19 could have on Yearwood, whom he described as "one of the greatest voices in all of music."

"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. We're very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers," said the country singer, who performed at President Joe Biden's inauguration in January.

In July last year, Brooks said his daughter Allie Colleen, 24, had a mild case of COVID-19. He and Yearwood later announced that they were postponing their July 7 Facebook concert because of potential exposure.

"While Garth and Trisha are fine, the Garth/Trisha camp has possibly been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for 2 weeks and thank everyone for their concern," a statement obtained by Billboard read.

Meanwhile, the couple released, "Shallow," earlier this month.

"Excited to announce that SHALLOW, my duet with my husband @garthbrooks, is available to stream everywhere! Who wants to sing along with us?" Yearwood posted on Instagram in early February.

The song was originally performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for the 2018 movie "A Star Is Born."
