Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Dish on COVID-19 Charity Concert, Plus: Their Post-Pandemic Plans
Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood are getting ready to do their part to help during the COVID-19 outbreak. The popular country music couple crashed Facebook last week after hosting a Facebook Live concert, where they sang their hits and took requests. Wednesday night, they will do the same from their Studio G, which will broadcast on CBS, donating a million dollars to charities for coronavirus relief.
“Extra's” Billy Bush FaceTimed with Garth and Trisha, who shared what fans can expect. While Trisha said she has “no idea” what will happen, Garth said, “You never do, man — that's the fun of it… We just take requests and trust me, it's like turning your head and falling into warm bathwater… So this is gonna be nothing but fun right here, hopefully in a time when we all need it.”
Trisha added, “It's natural, it's just gonna be requests, it's gonna be bumpy, but we're all just trying to connect.”
As for how they are feeling during this time of uncertainty, Trisha commented, “It's easy to just watch the news all day and go down those rabbit holes and just get yourself into a real place and we're all doing that, but then you need to pull yourself out and look at who we are. We come together when things get tough.”
Garth pointed out, “I've never seen anything like this, but what I love most of all about this, the blessing in the curse is finding out the people we can be. We can all be pretty damn good. I'm gonna put my money on the human race to kick this things ass and go on and get back to having fun again.”
The first thing they are going to do when this is all over? Garth answered, “We are gonna go out to eat.”
For now, Trisha, who has her own cooking show, is doing the cooking at home. Garth dished, “We haven't left the house. She's been going into the pantry and we don't have anything but a bottle of Coke and Arm & Hammer baking soda, and she comes out with mashed potatoes and steak.”
