Staying strong! Country singer Garth Brooks revealed wife and country singer Trisha Yearwood tested positive for COVID-19.

Brooks, 59, and Yearwood, 56, had been quarantining at their Tennessee home after they were both exposed to the novel virus when a member of their team recently tested positive.

"The Queen and I have now tested twice," Brooks — who is currently still testing negative for COVID-19 — shared on Wednesday, February 24. The lovebirds were forced to wait a week after their initial exposure because of the severe winter storm that plagued the state. "Officially, she's diagnosed as 'on her way out of the tunnel' now, though, which I'm extremely thankful for," he added.

"Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together," Brooks said before adding 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," Brooks admitted of his wife, who is still experiencing symptoms from COVID-19.

While remaining positive, Brooks — who performed at President Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20 — expressed his concern over how his wife would deal with possible longterm effects of the virus.  

"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," he confessed. "We're very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers."

As OK! previously reported, Brooks and Yearwood — who have been married for 15 years — previously faced a COVID scare when Brooks' daughter and Yearwood's stepdaughter, Allie, 24, tested positive over the summer. "They were worried sick and had to go into quarantine themselves," a source exclusively told OK!, adding that not being able to hold Allie's hand was terrible for both of them.
