– There used to be Johnny and June, George and Tammy, Porter and Dolly. More recently Tim and Faith. Add Garth and Trisha to the list. That's because Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood are going to release a duets Christmas album.
The two are on tour together with Yearwood coming out to sing some songs, typically during Brooks' set. They also have recorded songs together, but this will be a full-fledged album, a rarity in country music.
When asked about the idea of a duets album, Brooks said at a press conference on Thursday at TD Garden prior to opening his Boston run of shows, Brooks said, "We are trying to get it out this year."
"We'll test the waters," Brooks said about the idea of doing a regular studio album with Yearwood.
"It'll be a duets album, but it will not be like what you've seen before. She's got a lot of strong ideas."
Brooks said the music has yet to be recorded.
