Carlile, 40, was scheduled to perform Friday at the country music festival, which is coming back for the first time in two years since the outset of the pandemic.

With a raspy voice, Carlile said she was “a few days in” and has a chest infection.

“It finally happened, I have the COVID,” the singer said in an Instagram post. However, she says she believes she had turned a corner Wednesday with her infection and is feeling better.

“I just want everybody to know that I’m devastated to be missing you and I hope that you have a wonderful time with all my freaking friends,” she said. “See you on the other side of this trash.”

Stagecoach kicks off Friday in Coachella with Thomas Rhett as the headliner.
