It’s been a busy year for country’s super couple. Not only did Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood just wrap up the Garth Brooks World Tour in Honolulu, Hawaii, as well as commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor with back-to-back performances, but the happy couple also celebrated 11 years of wedded bliss on Saturday (Dec. 10).
Garth and Trisha, who were wed 11 years ago on Dec. 10, 2005, in Oklahoma, haven’t spent much time apart since that day. This year, the husband and wife team released their long-awaited duets Christmas album, Christmas Together, in November, continued touring the country on the Garth Brooks World Tour, performed at Christmas in Rockefeller Center and The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration and shared the stage at the 50th annual CMA Awards together.
“You just do it one day at a time,” Garth said. “[I] just want to be wherever she’s at. Love breathing the same air she’s breathing, whether we’re doing the same thing or not. But this is a celebrity thing. We’ve seen them all come and go. So every day, you put in. The difference is . . . I don’t have to remember to put in that time. It’s an honor to put in that time. And it’s something that just comes naturally.”
“We have a friendship that’s a great base for all of it. And we made a really conscious effort when we got married, to not be together to be apart,” adds Trisha. “It wasn’t OK to just go, ‘We’re married now; we’re just still going to do our own thing.’ So that meant that we . . . we make those decisions together when we married. And we’re together! I mean, 99 percent of the time we’re together. We don’t spend very many nights apart at all. And I think that’s a big part of it. And we actually enjoy each others company, which is nice.”
NCD wishes Garth and Trisha a very Happy Anniversary and many more!
