Kelsea Ballerini has tested positive for COVID but remains in good spirits despite not being able to attend the CMT Music Awards tonight in person. The host of the show will now fulfill the hosting duties virtually from home. Taking to social media, Ballerini shared the news with fans and said that she was “devastated” but that the team at CMT have “brought part of the set” to her house so she can still host.
“The incredible CMT team and my team have bought part of the CMT set to my house, to my little bubble, and set it up to where I can still host and perform,” added Ballerini. “It is certainly not what we had expected or planned for, but we are doing our damn best. … Let’s make some lemonade together out of these very bitter lemons.”
