Garth Brooks + Trisha Yearwood Committed to Making Duets Album a Reality
It seems the long-awaited duets album from Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood might soon become a reality. The Oklahoma native recently hinted at a press conference that a record of duets is one of his goals for 2015.
"We are trying to get it out this year," Brooks reveals. "It'll be a duets album, but it will not be like what you've seen before. She's got a lot of strong ideas."
Brooks first mentioned the possibility of joining forces with his wife back in 2007, when he was still happily enjoying time off the road to raise his three daughters.
"In 10 years or so, we’ll see if our children are on their own and doing great," he told The Boot at that time. "And then I’ll see if Ms. Yearwood isn't burned out and would like to go back out. I won’t go back out without her, for sure. If we get a chance to go out and light it up one more time, then I gotta tell you, that would be a fantastic opportunity."
It also seems like Yearwood has been eager to record with her husband for a while, but the timing wasn't right, until now.
“Yes, [a duets record is] absolutely on the list," she told Taste of Country at a recent media event. “That was one of the things that was important to us. We wanted to be on the same label so that we could do that easily.”
The couple will have to juggle recording with their ongoing World Tour, which is scheduled to head to Pittsburgh, Pa.; Detroit, Mich.; Buffalo, N.Y.; and Denver, Colo., over the next few months. See all of the upcoming shows here.
