Yet another member of the country music community has come forward to share they have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Previously, actress/country singer Rita Wilson and Fiona Prine (wife of country singer John Prine), both announced they had been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Now, Broadway actress and country singer Laura Bell Bundy has revealed that she too, tested positive for the virus.
Bundy announced the news in a video she posted to social media. She explained her symptoms, saying they have been “minor,” which she attributes to the fact she has been taking good care of herself.

The “Giddy On Up” singer said she has been in quarantine since March 12, which is when she developed a headache. Then, a few days later, she had a sore throat that came and went. Later, she began experiencing a “tightness in her chest” and a “shortness of breath.”
She was tested for COVID-19 on March 19. Over the weekend that followed, Bundy said she experienced no symptoms at all.
But when the results from her test came in on March 23, it was confirmed that Bundy had tested postive for the virus.
Bundy’s husband, Thom Hinkle, has started to experience symptoms similar to hers. So far, the couple’s 10-month-old son, Huck, is not exhibiting any symptoms.
Reassuring her fans, Bundy said no one should “be alarmed” and that she is doing “okay.” She said she is taking all of the supplements recommended by her doctor and has also been taking herbs.
Bundy isn’t sure where she contracted the virus, but said she went to two events in the days before she self-quarantined.
To close her message, Bundy encouraged her followers to take care of themselves and stay inside so they don’t risk passing the virus on to anyone else. You can watch her full video about her diagnosis below.
We’ll be praying for Bundy’s quick and complete recovery. Her husband and son are also in our prayers.
