Garth Brooks Dishes on Wife Trisha Yearwood’s Biggest Pet Peeve About Him

by Matthew Wilson

They may be happily married for 15 years. But sometimes, Trisha Yearwood finds her husband Garth Brooks annoying. The country singers open up about Yearwood’s biggest pet peeve – whistling.

Brooks can’t stop whistling. Being in close quarters, especially with the pandemic, it’s driving Yearwood almost insane. The couple didn’t reveal whether Brooks whistles any of his classic hits like “Friends in Low Places.” But apparently, it’s an annoying habit that Brooks can’t kick.

“I whistle everywhere I go… and it drives her absolutely nuts and she’s been so sweet to put up with it,” Brooks told Extra.

In Yearwood’s defense, it isn’t the whistling itself that annoys her but the fact that Brooks can’t seem to stop.

“It’s not like just the occasional whistle, it’s really like a 24/7 thing,” she said.

Garth Brooks Makes It Up to Yearwood in Other Ways

After 15 years, any marriage is going to have its small moments of annoyance. And Brooks and Yearwood have known each other longer than most. They actually met back in the 1980s at the start of their careers as demo singers. The two channeled a passion and chemistry into a string of successful duets and later a long-lasting marriage.

“This was somebody I always enjoyed being around, and we had a lot more in common than I ever dreamed we did,” Brooks said. “If you like her and don’t know her, you’ll love her. If you love her and don’t know her, you’ll worship her. She’s the real deal.”

Brooks makes up for his annoying habits with the little things. The country singer can be romantic when he wants to be, especially around Christmas time. One year, Brooks bought Yearwood her own personal shopping cart so she wouldn’t have to tote groceries in at the house. To pull off the gift, Brooks consulted with Yearwood’s mother and began to search for one at a defunct grocery store.

But Brooks’ gift better be pretty spectacular this year to make up for singing their duet “Shallow” with Kelly Clarkson.
