Lady A will no longer appear at The 54th Annual CMA Awards tonight.

The trio made the announcement just one hour before “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” revealing that one of their immediate family members has tested positive for COVID-19. So far, the three of them have tested negative, however, out of caution, they have decided to stay at home.

Lady A, who is currently nominated for CMA Vocal Group of the Year, was slated to perform alongside CMA co-host Darius Rucker. The longtime friends were scheduled to perform Rucker’s latest single, “Beers & Sunshine,” however it appears that Rucker will proceed with a solo performance.

Additionally. Lady A’s Hillary Scott was also set to join Thomas Rhett, Reba McEntire and Chris Tomlin for the live debut of “Be A Light.”

Charles Kelley’s performance with Carly Pearce will go on as scheduled as it was previously taped.

The 54th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, will take place live from Nashville’s Music City Center Wednesday, Nov. 11 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on ABC.
