    People are questioning if he caught it last month at the CMAs as unlike other award shows which are virtual, they had an actual audience.

    I would not doubt it. It's on them if that is the case. RIP Charley.

    I, too, also wondered if he had possibly caught it while in Nashville at the CMAs. I'm shocked that they even had the awards shows with an audience as badly as COVID-19 is raging!!

    RIP, Charley!!! You'll now be able to hopefully "Kiss An Angel Good Morning" for eternity.

    Those in charge of the CMAs have brought out a statement saying it wasn't their fault. They say he was tested before going to Nashville, again when he landed and once more on the showday and all tests were negative. He was then tested again several times after he went back home to Texas and they too were all negative.

    They are covering their bases. You just have to look at photos or video of the show, no one is wearing masks or social distancing all that much. They were slammed for that in the media.

    True, just a very sad death.

    Quite a few people who were there are tweeting about it including Maren Morris & Mickey Guyton so it does look like there is something to it, more so with how quick the CMAs were to deny it as well as them trying to put a line under it. I've seen quite a few people say they tested negative multiple times then found out they had it a couple of days later. I wonder if that was the case here?

    I think it might be the case, a few were testing positive a few hours before the show went on. You think that would be a warning sign to shut it down.

    I was not a fan of his, but this man did the impossible at a time when it could have cost him his life. Brave man, talented man.
