Trisha Yearwood on Bout with COVID and How Garth Brooks Was at Her Side: 'He Would Not Stay Away'
In an interview with PEOPLE (the TV Show!), Yearwood, 56, says that although her symptoms associated with the virus were not severe, she still had to push her husband to stay away.
"I had what was considered a mild case and I think that's why we had — we were lucky that COVID didn't go into our lungs, but that's probably also why we have more trouble here," she explains, pointing at her face. "It was just no joke."
"He would not stay away from me. I'm like, 'Dude, I cannot be responsible for giving Garth Brooks COVID,'" she says of Brooks, 59, with a laugh. "'You have to go quarantine on the other side of the house.'"
"He would not do it. He was really worried about me," she adds. "But he never got sick and he was vaccinated. He took really good care of me, but he drove me crazy."
"What do you give these guys? I can't imagine the gifts they've received. Garth was like, 'Why don't we get him a car from the year they married?'" Yearwood says about the gift. "So that's what we went on the hunt for to find it."
Yearwood says she's the "internet girl" and did a deep search to find the car. Brooks made sure it worked.
Last month, the Carters' close friend Jill Stuckey told PEOPLE that the couple was "very excited" about the gift.
