Lee Brice is on the mends after having COVID-19, and is promoting his new album, “Hey World”, which comes out Friday.
Lee said "In the beginning there was fever and body aches, and he didn’t get much sleep. He said, “I literally woke up all wet. I wasn’t shivering and I don’t think the fever got high, but I did wake up feeling like I sweat out a fever or something.”
He also had congestion in his chest and his sinuses were clogged. He compared his to “a very mild cold or allergies”… but he considers himself one of the lucky ones. He said, "I’ve talked to some people that have had it really bad.
“My manager had it and he was down. He couldn’t get out of bed, it hurt to breathe, he was down, down, down. All I know that this week, I’ve heard about more people having it compared to the last nine months. Everyone I know has had it.”
He’s been quarantining in his barn and that ends today. He’ll finally see his wife Sara and their three kids, 12-year-old Takoda, six-year-old Ryker, and little Trulee, who is three. Lee said, “All I want to do is go hug them and kiss them.”
You may remember Tyler from Florida Georgia Line also had a positive test come back before the CMAs and his case seemed to be mild as well. After 13 days, he was able to reunite with his family for dinner last night.
