It's safe to say Trisha Yearwood's new record bears the Garth Brooks seal of approval.

"I've heard him talk about this country album probably more than I've ever heard him talk about a record that I've made. So he seems to like it," she said with a laugh.

That doesn't mean he was around for most of the recording of "Every Girl" -- especially after what happened while Yearwood was making "Let's Be Frank."

"I don't go babysit him when he's making a record and vice versa," she explained. "But when I was getting ready to do this standards record... I was nervous... and I said 'You have to go with me. I need you. I need to be able to look at you and see you in the room.'"

"And he cried," she told ABC News. "I'm like, 'You can't cry while I'm singing, because I have to keep it together, you know, while I'm singing!' But I cried too because it was such a dream come true."

In addition to other special guests like Kelly Clarkson, Don Henley and Patty Loveless, Brooks joins his bride for her first all-new country album in more than a decade.

"He's on 'What Gave Me Away,' which to me is this love letter to him," Yearwood said. "Really it's a very sexy song... that talks about, like, this guy has my number. So I couldn't have imagined anybody else singing with me other than him."

Brooks particularly loves the title track and was one of the first to believe "Every Girl in This Town" could be a hit, she said.

Of course, he was right. The track continues to climb the charts after becoming the highest-debuting song of Yearwood's career to date.

"Every Girl" is out now.
