  • Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood teased a studio cover of A Star Is Borns “Shallow.”

  • Brooks and Yearwood originally covered the hit song in March after a fan requested it during a Facebook Live concert.

  • The performance was such a hit that the country stars decided to cover it for potential inclusion in Brooks’ upcoming album, FUN.

A Star Is Born fans are in luck—Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood just teased a studio cover of “Shallow,” which may be included in Brooks’ upcoming album, “FUN!”

The decision to cover Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s hit song came after an overwhelming response to the couple’s impromptu rendition of “Shallow” during one of Brooks’ Facebook Live concerts back in March. At the time of their performance, they racked up more than 3 million views, causing the stream to crash for some fans, ABC News reported.

In a new interview with People TV, the couple said the Live was their first time singing the song together. When asked if they can just sing a song like that on the spot, Brooks replied, “Well, when you have her!” pointing to his wife.

Although the couple’s live cover of “Shallow” has since been taken down from Facebook, you can enjoy a preview of the studio recording, courtesy of People TV:


Brooks and Yearwood shared that, while Cooper was prepping for A Star Is Born, he actually attended one of their concerts in L.A.

“He was neat,” Brooks recalled of Cooper. “He kept talking about ear monitors, which was weird. I don’t know if it was already written in the movie or not, but he noticed I didn’t wear them, and I told him that the reason I didn’t wear them was I can’t hear [the audience].”

“Every girl on the tour was suddenly backstage when Bradley came back,” Yearwood joked.

Brooks also said he felt touched by the new romance sparked by Jackson and Ally in A Star Is Born. “In the movie, their relationship is not long,” he said. “It’s new,” Yearwood added. Brooks then choked up, reflecting on how he felt when he first met Yearwood more than 30 years ago.

“It’s 1997, or ‘98, and you meet a girl that came here for the same reason you did, trying to get a deal, you’re doing demos and passing each other in the hallway. Then you realize that, every day from that moment, as artists, as friends, and then all the sudden it turns around the turn of the century to, OK, for five years we’re going to date. And you see all that when you sing the song,” Brooks said of “Shallow.”

When asked if it was hard to sing when he’s feeling so emotional about the song, Brooks said "it’s funny because, their lyric is, ‘Tell me something girl’ and you’re just looking right at her.”

Yearwood chimed in to say that her husband is a romantic. “It’s a joy to get up in the morning, the guy doesn’t drink coffee and he makes your coffee every single morning, and if I get up and make coffee, he’s not happy about it, because he wants to make my coffee,” Yearwood said.

Brooks has yet to share the release date of his upcoming album, but he revealed that it will be accompanied by a live companion album of his stadium tour. Sounds like it will certainly be worth the wait!
