Garth and Trisha Not on Same “Title” Page
Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood engaged in some playful banter about Garth's proposed “title” as they met with reporters on the red carpet prior to Garth’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Garth was asked what the honor meant for him.
"I look at it as trying to make country music as proud of me as I am [of it], and you represent country music the best way you can," Garth said. With a winking glance toward Trisha, Garth added, "The only difference in our life now is that she has to say 'Hall of Famer' before she calls my name." Trisha laughed and simply deadpanned, "Not gonna happen."
On a more serious note, Garth noted that induction to the Hall of Fame represented a huge honor. But he would like to see bigger classes each year. Garth's fellow 2012 inductees were Connie Smith and musician Hargus "Pig" Robbins.
"The only thing I gripe about sometimes is that they don't put enough people in," Garth said. "There are a lot of people who aren't in yet who should be in before me." Garth has previously cited Randy Travis as one of those deserving artists.
