After nearly 14 years together, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks have one of the most inspiring marriages in country music. When we had a heart-to-heart with the 55-year-old Grammy winner, we learned that there’s one thing that helps hold her marriage together and, honestly, it’s really simple.
“Make sure that you keep your relationship a priority,” Yearwood told PureWow exclusively. “We have busy careers and we’re both as busy now as we’ve ever been. And we’ve both been married before. So, when we got married, we made a conscious decision not be to be apart, to be together.”
So how do the country music stars ensure that they can spend as much quality time with one another as possible? Yearwood explained, “We sit down and figure out our schedules. That means sometimes someone has to make a sacrifice and not do something they want to do in order to be with the other. A lot of people think we’re a little bit crazy because we’re together so much. But for us, that’s what we chose to do and what we want to do.”
The Trisha’s Southern Kitchen host was quick to point out that this relationship tip doesn’t exclusively apply to two well-regarded country musicians. She said, “It’s easy for us in relationships to take that other person for granted and start working on the things that are important to you. You have to remember, if you’re going to be a couple, you’ve got to think about what the other person needs. And that’s easy in the beginning but you have to remember that you can’t let that go. You have to continue, every day, making that relationship a priority.”
