AUSTIN, Texas - Asleep at the Wheel's Ray Benson posted a video on Twitter with the good news to fans that he's recovered after testing positive for COVID-19.
In the video, Benson says that he's been dealing with the coronavirus for around three weeks and that he's been basically bedridden for two of them.
"Good thing to say that today I think I've licked this thing."
Benson says he's been told he had a mild case which made him tired, dizzy and nauseous. He joked that some good news from getting the coronavirus was that he "lost a bunch of weight."
Benson thanked everyone for their support and well wishes. He sent out his love and support for those dealing with and affected by the coronavirus and urged people to help those around us when we can. He added they'd be back at the music as soon as they're able to get out and perform again.
