Garth Brooks explained why he bows to his wife, Trisha Yearwood, after singing with her.
“When we first started singing together, she told me I had to,” he joked.
Now, he does it out of respect for her talent.
If you’re a longtime fan of Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, you’re familiar with Brooks’ favorite term of endearment for his wife: The Queen. But it’s not just a title to Brooks—he treats her like royalty too, down to the way he acknowledges her on stage.
You may have noticed that after every performance he and Yearwood do together, he gives her a bow. And although Brooks loves the repeated gesture, it was actually Yearwood who initially suggested it.
“When we first started singing together, she told me I had to. After every song, I had to bow to her,” he said jokingly on the March 29 episode of his Facebook show, Inside Studio G. “Then she probably started feeling guilty I was bowing, so she’d bow back.”
In reality, Brooks loves showing up for his wife in every way possible, and said he does it 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.” At this point, he’s done it for so long that he can’t really stop now.
On multiple occasions, the couple has spoken on how much closer they’ve gotten over the pandemic, and Brooks stays rolling out all of the loving gestures, from making coffee and doing the dishes every morning to taking care of the “Walkaway Joe” singer when she tested positive for COVID in February.
“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” Brooks said in a statement at the time. And while she was on the mend, there was no better time to work on making their marriage even stronger.
“I thought, ‘Since we’re here, and we ain’t got nowhere to go, let’s just attack some of the hardest things over the 15 years that bugs one of us,’ right?” Brooks said during a virtual appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “You couldn’t go anywhere, so you couldn’t walk away from the conversation. And I thought it was great, I think we came out the other end even closer and tighter than we were when we went in.”
