“Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though,” Brooks said in the release. “Which I’m extremely thankful for.

“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together. And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”
