Host Kelsea Ballerini Teases CMT Awards Look From Home After Testing Positive For COVID-19
COVID-19 won't stop Kelsea Ballerini from strutting her stuff!
Despite the country songstress revealing she tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday, April 11, the same day she was set to host the CMT Awards in in Nashville, Tenn., she still showed off her sultry ensemble for the night.
Taking to Instagram ahead of the start of the can't miss award show, Ballerini, 28, shared several shots of her donning a sleek, white pant suit she left opened to expose her bedazzled bralette. As promised, the "I Quit Drinking" musician turned her driveway into her very own runway, as she stood on a pink carpet in front of a CMT Awards show banner with lights set up.

Anything is possible."
Only hours before Ballerini got herself dressed up and ready to hit the carpet outside her home, she shared her shocking positive test result with her 2.7 million Instagram followers.
"Alright, friends. I have some bad news and I have some good news," Ballerini — who hosted the CMT Awards last year with Kane Brown — began. "The bad news is that I tested positive for COVID-19, and the CMT Awards are tonight."

"Unfortunately, I cannot be there anymore, and I am devastated," the "Miss Me More" artist admitted. "But the good news is that I am feeling a lot better — a lot better and the incredible CMT family and my team have brought part of the CMT set to my house, to my little bubble and set it up to where I can still host and perform."
Acknowledging the situation "is certainly not what we had expected or planned for," the vocalist maintained a positive outlook, telling fans: "we are doing our damn best."
