Brett Young is doing his part to stop the spread of the coronavirus by self-isolating for two weeks on his tour bus in his own driveway. The singer told Big D and Bubba about his decision to quarantine after returning from Europe in order to protect his wife Taylor and young daughter Presley.

“I might be on the over cautious side of things for most people, but I’m hiding out on the bus just trying to make sure I didn’t bring anything back from Europe to my family,” he says. “So me and the pup are hiding out.”

Young has been on the bus for one week so far and plans to stay there for two weeks to make sure he isn’t carrying the virus. Prior to coming home, the singer was in Amsterdam, Berlin, the UK, Stockholm, and Oslo. His show in Oslo ending up getting cancelled, so the band decided to fly home. He says they got their tickets home just mere hours before the Europe-to-US travel ban was announced.

The coronavirus has affected essentially every music event all over the globe. The country music world has been filled with news of postponements and cancellations over the past two weeks, and Young says no one quite knows when things will get back to normal.

“It’s a super fluid situation,” he says. “The goal is to get out there as soon as possible, but without putting people at risk and minimizing risk as much as possible.”

In the meantime, Young says he plans to do some sort of live stream performance from the bus for fans.

“We’re going to call it the QT. It’s the quarantine tour,” he says.
