Luke Combs has cancelled his scheduled performance at the CMT Music Awards, since his confirmed, positive test for Covid.  He will be replaced by Old Dominion, CountryNow.com reports.

While the CMT Awards aren’t scheduled to take place until April 11th, Luke was scheduled to pre-tape his performance with Kane Brown, today (Thursday, March 24th), in Nashville.

An email to CountryNow.com from 1iota, a company involved with the performance, reads in part, “In Luke’s absence, Old Dominion will join Kane Brown for special musical performances for a TV taping.”

CMT officials confirmed to the Tennessean that Combs has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently quarantining.

The country music superstar was supposed to record a performance alongside Kane Brown at a secret location on March 24th, however, he has now been replaced with Old Dominion.  Combs is nominated for “Video of the Year” for “Forever After All.”

His last sighting was in London; where he performed alongside Ed Sheeran.  They hit the stage together for a performance of Sheeran’s 2017 single “Dive.”

Combs posted a video of the performance with a caption that read:  “Covered ‘Dive’ countless times, but this was by far the coolest! Thanks to my buddy @edsheeran for joining me on stage in London.”
