Country Music Awards Host Tests Positive for COVID Hours Before Show
It’s a COVID-19 crisis at the CMT Awards, as co-host Kelsea Ballerini has tested positive hours before the big show. Now, CMT producers are scrambling for solutions now that the co-host can’t be in person. They’ve decided to take the show to her, sending a production truck with a set and wardrobe to her home, where she will co-host and perform remotely. Across America, COVID-19 cases are on the rise. New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who has made “reopening” the city his priority, has tested positive.
