In a recent interview, Trisha Yearwood shared her take on why her marriage with Garth Brooks is tough sometimes and how it only gets stronger with time.
"We're both very independent people who run our own ships. And sometimes when two people are driving two big ships, it can be difficult," Trisha Yearwood told Us Weekly on April 13.
The 56-year-old singer, who took some time off from music to concentrate on other projects, said that living together continuously amid the pandemic served as a wake-up call.

The couple had to learn about balance in an environment where there was no physical separation. In spite of this, Yearwood now believes their marriage is stronger than ever.
In addition, it may have gotten stronger after Yearwood had her battle with COVID-19 last February. The country singer has since recovered entirely from the life-threatening virus.
In December 2005, Yearwood and Brooks were married. Brooks was previously married to songwriter Sandy Mahl. Meanwhile, Yearwood was married to Christopher Latham and Robert Reynolds.
However, Yearwood wanted things to be as real as possible.
Yearwood didn't have any children of her own from her previous marriages. Yet, the "How Do I Live" singer became the proud stepmother for Brooks and Mahl's three daughters, Taylor, August, and Allie.
In an interview with Closer Weekly and other media representatives at an NYC event in 2019, Brooks discussed how important it was to have Yearwood by his side when he was raising his daughters.

Even though there were challenges, Brooks said he achieved the goal of being a good father to Taylor, August, and Allie with his ex-wife at their side. According to him, three parents worked as a team well.
Earlier this month, Yearwood opened up about aging with grace. After posting a selfie that had her glowing and glam following a photoshoot, her fans flooded her post with praise.
However, Yearwood wanted things to be as real as possible. So the singer followed up with a photo of her bare face without makeup to show the world her natural appearance.
The singer has revealed that when she hangs out at home, her makeup-free style is her preference. She also said she has always followed her mom's beauty advice, which is to take care of herself.
