Scott Adkins released a statement to The Associated Press from Diffie that said he is under the care of medical professionals and is receiving treatment.

My family and I are asking for privacy at this time,” Diffie said in the statement. “We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic.”

The Grammy Award winner is the first country music artist to report a positive COVID-19 test. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe and his family at this difficult time.

Pretty soon, he'll be back on his feet performing all of his classic hits!
