Brandi Carlile revealed Wednesday that COVID-19 “finally got me” and that she has to cancel her planned set at Stagecoach this weekend.
Carlile shared the news in an Instagram video, talking directly to her fans.
“Hey, buddies. It finally happened. I have the COVID,” she says in the video. “So I won’t be able to come to Stagecoach. Argh, it’s horrible. I’m a few days in and I have a chest infection, but I think I turned a corner today and I’m starting to feel a little better.
“I just wanted to let everybody know that I’m devastated to be missing you and I hope you have a wonderful time out there with all my friends,” she adds. “See you on the other side of this trash.”
Carlile was set to perform at the Indio, California, festival Friday night, with Thomas Rhett headlining the day and Maren Morris and Midland also high up on the bill. Friday’s lineup also includes country legend Tanya Tucker, with whom Carlile collaborated on a Grammy-winning project, While I’m Livin’.
Carrie Underwood will headline Stagecoach day 2 on Saturday, while Luke Combs wraps the festival Sunday night.
