The Queen is in there, of course, because you can’t do it without her. But… this is – it’s been fun so far. It’s going to be a blast to finish though.”

Trisha Yearwood Opened Up About Touring With Her Husband Garth Brooks During His Long-Running World Tour

During a 2017 interview with Grammy.com, Trisha Yearwood Discussed what it was like to tour with her husband Garth Brooks, and what went into creating the exciting long-running show. 

“Garth is not like other boys so there is not a tour like this,” Yearwood declared at the time. “We are about to hit our three-year mark of this tour. It always starts with the music.”

Yearwood also said that it’s really about Brooks and less about her. “I come out in the middle [of the show] and do my set,” she said. “And it’s a much more abbreviated version of an evening with me when I do my own show. So for me, it’s thinking you’re going to be out there, you’re coming out with a big bang, what songs do I have to do?”

Trisha Yearwood further admitted that she couldn’t do the shows without performing her hit singles She’s in Love With The Boy and How Do I Live. She pointed out that with Garth Brooks, it’s always a big tour and he uses a bigger scale when it comes to performances. “I’m used to theaters, I love theaters where if you say something in the background, I can hear you and we can have a conversation,” she went on to add.
