Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line gave his fans an update on his status after he tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday.

Hubbard posted an update about his health on his Instagram story on early Tuesday afternoon. The musical artist says he woke up and knew that the coronavirus wasn’t a joke.

“Good morning everybody, a quick update from the bus. I’m feeling okay,” Hubbard wrote. “I woke up this morning for the first time and was like ‘okay, this is real. This is real. I can feel it in my head.”

However, in light of the unfortunate circumstances, Hubbard appears to be in good spirits.

“I just wanted to say thank you to everybody for all of the prayers, messages and everybody that’s checked in on me. It means a lot,” the Florida Georgia Line singer says.

He’s also not letting the virus hold him back from writing new songs. Despite missing his family, Hubbard says that he is making the most of his time in quarantine.

“I’ve written five songs since I got on this bus, so that’s been good,” he says. “I’m just trying to stay positive.”

Tyler Hubbard Announced Positive Result Yesterday on Instagram

Tyler Hubbard hinted to fans yesterday that he might be in quarantine with a photo of his tour bus in the driveway to his house. He asked fans, “Any ideas why I would have my tour bus parked in the drive way?” 

Fans thought it meant he might be back on tour or was heading to the CMA Awards. However, neither of these reasons was the case.

Hubbard later posted a selfie to his Instagram of him sitting on the steps to his tour bus, still steps away from his house. He looks to be in decent spirits then, too, with a white t-shirt, navy jacket, and navy backward hat. The artist captioned the photo with an update regarding his positive test results.

 “Some of y’all guessed it….. Got the Rona. Asymptomatic. Quarantining on bus. Miss my family. Writing songs. Thankful.”

Furthermore, Hubbard has decided to keep his distance from his family, which consists of his 33-year-old wife, Hayley, two-year-old daughter Olivia, 13-month-old son Luca Reed, and newborn son Atlas. 

Other Half of Florida Georgia Line

The other half of the dynamic duo of Florida Georgia Line, Brian Kelley, seems to be in good health. He posted a photo yesterday from the beach, where he was playing guitar. Also spotted in the picture is an eagle flying over the water. In his caption, the singer said he was feeling more patriotic than usual.
