Trisha Yearwood has vowed never to wear a bodysuit again — and with good reason.

The country star, 54, tells PEOPLE her last major wardrobe malfunction involved the item of clothing, and nearly derailed a performance in front of 16,000 fans.

Yearwood said she was on tour with husband Garth Brooks, 57, when she took the stage sporting a three-snap bodysuit under a skirt.

“I walk out on stage and I feel one of the snaps pop, and I’m like, ‘Okay, I got two more,” she recalled. “I took another step or two, second one snaps. And by the time I get on stage, the third one has snapped.”

The Trisha’s Southern Kitchen host said she struggled with what to do next, since the massive crowd made it impossible for her to reach under her skirt and make a quick fix.

“I just did my show and when I left stage I was like, ‘Oh my God, my bodysuit — I’m never wearing another one of these in my life!'” she jokes, noting that she was “lucky” the bodysuit stayed in place. “I don’t even remember my performance because I was just so worried about my clothes. No more bodysuits for me; I’m done with that.”

The three-time Grammy winner toured with Brooks from 2014 through 2017 on the massive World Tour, which made nearly 400 stop and sold more than six million tickets.

Yearwood is currently focusing on her new album Let’s Be Frank, her first full-length studio LP in more than a decade.

The album features a collection of the singer’s favorite Frank Sinatra songs, which she recorded live with an orchestra using Sinatra’s microphone at the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood.

“I’ve been wanting to make this record for 20 years!” Yearwood told PEOPLE in November. “I have always loved standards, and nobody sings them better than Sinatra. I’m honored to get the chance to pay tribute to him and the songwriters in these timeless classics.”
