Last July, Eddie got COVID and was out of the show for several weeks.
Finally after almost 2 months of being out of the studio, he was able to come back. But his taste and smell never returned completely. He's been hoping ever since that his taste and smell make a comeback like others were suggesting. He was told by several people his taste and smell would come back in the following weeks. His taste did come back, however his smell didn't... until now.
He shared during The Bobby Bones Show today (September 28), more than a year and a few months later that he thinks he finally has his entire smell back. He was outside and smelled a bonfire nearby, which he hasn't been able to do since before he got COVID. He was really excited to share the news and thinks it's finally back for good.
