Several country artists have been live streaming concerts to lift fans' spirits as the CDC encourages social distancing and concerts across the country have been postponed or canceled. On March 16, President Donald Trump issued guidelines that called for Americans to limit gatherings of more than 1o people.
Combs, who performed a 20 minute acoustic set from his garage, says he plans on doing one every week of the quarantine.
"Probably every week that we're quarantined I'll do one of these," Combs said. "Just 'cause I hope you guys like these and I like playing music and I probably don't have much going on in the next couple of days that I can think of. I hope you're staying safe out there."
