Garth Brooks shares a fun tradition with his wife Trisha Yearwood on stage when they perform and that is he simply bows to her and she does the same to him.
Garth said on Studio G on Facebook, “When we first started singing together, she told me I had to. After every song, I had to bow to her. Then she probably started feeling guilty I was bowing, so she’d bow back.”
Actually, the traction is a bit sweeter. Garth offered, “It’s out of respect of her gift, of her talent, and the fact that she’s done it on her own, as a woman in this business.”
He added, “Long before I ever thought it was possible to date the woman, much less marry her, I’m the biggest fan of Trisha Yearwood’s voice you can imagine.”
The couple had been singing demos together long before they started dating and got married and Brooks promised Yearwood that if he was successful, she could open show for him.
Garth, who is in The Country Music Hall Of Fame, wants to see his bride get the honor as well. He said, “One of the greatest crimes in country music history right now: Trisha Yearwood is not in the Country Music Hall of Fame yet. That is a crime because I cannot tell you how many people have moved to this town because this woman’s voice drove them here. This is the greatest singer we have in country music, arguably, and so I’m a huge, huge fan.”
