Trisha Yearwood has been serving up county music sassiness since she started her career decades ago. That sass is evident in a newly resurfaced clip of her way back in 1993 during one of her concerts. In the clip shared by Twitter user @PrincessTiffany, Yearwood appears in between songs at a packed show when she makes a cheeky remark to an audience member.
“I bet you can’t hit me with that water bottle,” a fresh-faced 29-year-old Yearwood says boldly. In response, the crowd member douses her with water, to which Yearwood lets out a playful scream, adding, “this is not a wet tee-shirt contest.” Then, almost without missing a beat, Yearwood fires off with, “although I would win,” and the crowd goes nuts.
Yearwood, who seemed like she didn’t remember all her spunk, replied to the user, making fun of herself and her outfit. “I love it! I don’t remember being that sassy in ’93 but I guess I was…and that outfit…I coulda been in Pirates of the Caribbean,” she tweeted in response.
Garth Brooks Encourages Fans To Send Trisha Yearwood Thoughts & Prayers Through Music
In light of her recent COVID-19 diagnosis, Yearwood’s playful response made fans think she was in good spirits and hopefully on the mend. In February, Garth Brooks revealed that Yearwood had tested positive for the illness after a team member came down with the illness. As a result, the couple started quarantining in their Nashville home as a precaution.
“The Queen and I have now tested twice,” Brooks said in a statement, adding that his wife is experiencing symptoms but is “on her way out of the tunnel.” Brooks says that Yearwood is in “okay” condition and has faith that his wife will get better. “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me,” he said, though he worries her diagnosis will permanently impact her singing career and requests fans send their well-wished through the power of music and prayer.
“If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing,” he said. “Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan. We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
