EXCLUSIVE: Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Open Up About Their New Duets Album ‘Christmas Together’
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are getting fans into the holiday spirit with their first duets album, Christmas Together, and they dished about the project to ET.
“You always pick an album to play when you decorate the tree,” Garth said, describing the vibe of their new project. “This year it’s going to be Christmas Together.”
The first couple of country music will perform songs from the album for three ABC and Disney Channel holiday TV specials. The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration and The Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration will air on ABC on Nov. 24 and Dec. 25, respectively, while Disney Parks Presents: A Descending Magical Holiday Celebration airs on Disney Channel Nov. 25.
“I love this guy and I love signing with him,” Trisha said about working with her husband. “We had a lot of fun.”
The couple duet on many classic songs together including, “I’m Beginning to See the Light,” “Marshmallow World” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Yearwood shines on “Santa Baby” and “Hard Candy Christmas,” while Brooks takes on a heartwarming rendition of “Feliz Navidad.”
Garth and Trisha’s first album collaboration currently has them at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and dashed to No. 2 on the Top Holiday Albums chart, which gives them plenty to be thankful this year.
“My favorite tradition that she has is cooking and mine is eating,” Garth joked about their holiday family traditions. “That’s my job.”
Brooks’ The Ultimate Collection is the best-selling album of the week according to BuzzAngle Music. The couple’s holiday album, Christmas Together, is out now.
