Maren’s concerns over Charley’s death garnered enough attention that the Country Music Association, along with representatives for the legendary singer, issued a joint statement.
“Everyone affiliated with the CMA Awards followed strict testing protocols set by the city’s health department and the unions,” the statement said, which was shared with E! News. “Charley was tested before going to Nashville. He was tested on landing in Nashville, and again on the day of the show, all tests coming back negative. ”
“After returning to Texas after the CMA Awards, Charley tested negative again on several occasions,” the statement continued. “All of us in the country music community are heartbroken over Charley’s passing. Out of respect for his family during their time of mourning, we will not comment on this. ”
