Garth Brooks in quarantine

Country music superstar Garth Brooks has postponed plans to stage a livestreamed acoustic concert today amid concerns a member of his team had been exposed to the coronavirus.

The Friends in Low Places singer and his wife, fellow artist Trisha Yearwood, had planned to take requests from fans for their latest virtual gig, but on Monday, representatives for the couple announced the show had been put on hold.

In a statement, they assured devotees the pair was feeling "fine" and explained the delay was simply "out of an abundance of caution" as someone in their camp had "possibly been exposed to the COVID-19 virus."

"To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for two weeks and thank everyone for their concern," the spokespeople add.

The musicians have been keeping fans in isolation entertained with various virtual appearances since the outbreak began in March, and Brooks also recently staged a drive-in concert that was beamed to outdoor cinemas across America.
