The posts are becoming more and more frequent as the novel coronavirus continues to infect scores of Americans indiscriminately. Award-winning Americana singer-songwriter, Margo Price shared just such a post.

On her Instagram page, Margo shared a picture of herself and her husband, Jeremy Ivey, sharing a sweet kiss backstage when they played Saturday Night Live. In the caption, she explains, “The last couple weeks have been really difficult for many reasons, but one of the things I’ve kept private is that my husband, Jeremy Ivy, has been experiencing a lot of the symptoms for #covid19 . He was first tested 12 days ago at a drive up clinic in Nashville and it took nearly 9 days to get the test results back. They were negative but Jeremy is still having symptoms including extreme shortness of breath. It got so bad that he went into the ER a couple days ago to get tested again. We just got the results back this morning and they were ‘inconclusive.’ They said he needs to come back in a third time since he is still having symptoms.”

She then goes on to say, “Jeremy is borderline diabetic/hypoglycemic which makes him high risk. I’ve been praying more than ever lately, hoping this nightmare will end. I guess I just gotta keep praying.”

This news comes just after Sturgill Simpson also revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Just a couple of days prior, Margo shared a video on Instagram from the couple’s NPR “Tiny Desk” performance, where they performed John Prine’s “That’s the Way the World Goes ‘Round” from their bathtub in Nashville with nine-year-old son Judah doing the camera work and baby Ramona adding a dose of preciousness.
