Lady A Pulls Out of CMA Awards After Family Member Tests Positive for COVID: 'We'll Be Cheering On'
"Out of caution and love for everyone involved with the CMAs, we've decided to stay home," the band wrote in a Twitter statement
"Taking a look back at last year's CMA Awards and all the fun that we have every year getting to hang out with our country music family," the group captioned two photos on Instagram. "Sadly, one of our immediate family members has just tested positive for COVID-19 this week."
"So far, the three of us continue to test negative, and out of caution and love for everyone involved with the CMAs, we've decided to stay home from the awards tonight," they added.

"We're bummed that we won't be able to perform with Darius Rucker and Thomas Rhett, but luckily Charles already taped his performance with Carly Pearce so you will still be seeing him take the stage!" they wrote. "We'll be cheering on our friends at home like the rest of y’all! Stay safe out there 💛💛."
