Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Planning Album, Tour Together
Trisha Yearwood says she and Garth Brooks have plans to begin work on an album that's been talked about for almost as long as they've been married. In addition to that, the singer and her husband have plans for a joint tour.
The 48-year-old Yearwood was on 'CBS This Morning' last week. The interview focused mostly on her cooking and how she changed her diet to drop 35 pounds earlier this year. Additionally, Yearwood says she's working on a solo album and is collaborating with Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson on a song for an upcoming Clarkson project.
Brooks had previously vowed to stay off the road until his youngest daughter graduated high school. That's planned for next spring. Yearwood says she and her husband are going to tour together, but gave no details about when or where.
"This will be our third go-around," she spills. "But it’ll be a whole different ball game, you know, as man and wife to go do this together. So I’m looking forward to it."
The Oklahoman is one of several outlets reporting that interviewer Jeff Glor followed up, asking if she also meant they'd record an album together. "That is part of the plan," Yearwood says. That clip is not in the video or transcript currently on CBS' website.
In July, Yearwood and Brooks shared a stage at the Oklahoma Twister Relief concert in Norman, Okla.
