For almost a decade now, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been a country music power couple with a rock solid marriage.
Recently, the couple has been plagued by rumors that their marriage is in jeopardy. Because of this, Yearwood gave an interview in which she revealed this could not be further from the truth, calling Brooks her “biggest cheerleader.”
“He’s the guy who says, ‘There’s nothing you can’t do.’ One of the things we respect about each other is that we’re both independent,” Yearwood said. “He makes more money than I do, but I’m an independent girl and always have been. I want to pull my weight in life and in the relationship.”
Yearwood and Brooks are currently touring together, and though she jokes that she makes less than her husband, Yearwood is far from unsuccessful. She has created a brand for herself beyond country music with her own cooking show on cable television.
Yearwood and Brooks’ strong marriage is something of a surprise to many, as the vast majorities of marriages in the entertainment industry end in divorce. We applaud them for showing the world what a true, loving marriage is!
