Kalie Shorr Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

Kalie Shorr

25-year-old singer-songwriter Kalie Shorr has revealed that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

Shorr called into The Bobby Bones Show this morning (March 31) to talk about her experience.

“About a week ago I woke up in the morning and felt completely fine. I was already self-quarantining, so it was just business as usual that day. At the middle of the day I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I needed to fall asleep. I’m a pretty high-energy person, I haven’t felt that tired in so long,” Shorr told Bones.

Shorr said she soon developed a fever and body aches. She was tested the next day.

“I think that there might be a misconception, at least in the greater Nashville area, about how difficult it is because I went in and I was probably out in 45 minutes. I just went to the Urgent Care through Vanderbilt [Hospital],” Shorr said.

Shorr suspects that she contracted the virus at the CMT’s American Red Cross Telethon for Tornado Relief, where there was a confirmed case.

“I did the tornado telethon and then they found out that somebody had had coronavirus there. I hadn’t interacted with him directly, I hadn’t been in the general vicinity as him but we’re still learning how contagious this is and that’s the one person I know that was confirmed to have it that I saw within a two-week period,” she said.

Shorr said that her roommates, songwriters Taylor Acorn and Emma Lynn White, also had it, but that all are recovering.

Shorr released her first full-length album Open Book in 2019, which includes the singles “Lullaby” and “F U Forever.”
