Margo Price and Jeremy Ivey attend the 61st Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on Feb. 10, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Margo Price's husband, guitarist Jeremy Ivey, is starting to feel better after battling COVID-19, the country singer-songwriter revealed on CBS This Morning.

"He is finally in just this last week getting back to being more like himself," she said in the at-home episode that aired Saturday (June 13). "He was in a worst state than I'd ever seen him in my whole life. I mean, he got thin and frail and he was just sleeping like 12-14 hours a day. I was pretty terrified."

Price -- who first told fans that Ivey was experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, and was high risk due to being diabetic/hypoglycemic, on April 13 -- quarantined with her family for 70 days straight while her husband was ill, and postponed the release of her upcoming album due to coronavirus.

"I miss going to shows, I miss being onstage, I miss being on tour. I even miss airports at this point, something I'd never thought I'd say," she admitted, but added: "I am really grateful that I have been able to see every milestone with my [infant] daughter. When they're that young, they do change very single day. It's been a blessing in disguise in that way."

Price also performed "Letting Me Down," "Drifter" and a cover of Bob Dylan's "Things Have Changed" on the CBS This Morning segment.

Her new album, That's How Rumors Get Started, is now due out July 10.
