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.
