In addition to his improving health and return to Idol on Sunday, Bryan also won entertainer of the year at the 2021 ACM Awards the same night -- an award he previously won in 2012 and 2014.
"I had two or three days. ... It was really, really tough and the boys were, I went to a whole different section of the house. I didn't see the boys for 10 days. ... That was tough," he told Extra on Monday (April 19) about missing his sons Thomas and Tatum. "I got just a little fatigue -- everybody says expect that. I'm just really, really happy to be back doing Idol. I was heartbroke to miss last week."
