Nashville Singer/Songwriter Kalie Shorr Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

Nashville singer/songwriter Kalie Shorr revealed via Twitter on March 30 that she has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

“Despite being quarantined (except for a handful of trips for groceries) for three weeks, I managed to contract COVID 19,” said Kalie in her initial tweet. “I’m feeling significantly better, but it’s proof how dangerous and contagious this is. It’s endlessly frustrating to see people not taking this seriously.”

“The first few days were absolutely miserable,” added Kalie in a second tweet. “I’ve never felt like that before. My entire body was in pain, and my fever was like riding a wave. I completely lost my sense of taste and smell.”

Kalie, who released her debut album, Open Book, in 2019, is also a member of the all-female singer/songwriter collective Song Suffragettes. Kalie was named a CMT Next Woman of Country in 2018.
