Trisha Yearwood recalls bailing on Emmys to stay home on Father's Day

Brooks' sweet surprise for wife Yearwood

 

Family comes first in the Yearwood-Brooks household.

Trisha Yearwood revealed in a new interview the reason why she bailed on the Emmys in 2013 after her show, "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" was nominated for the first time.

"The first time we had the Emmy nomination, it was Father's Day," she told The Wrap. "I was really torn, but we stayed home with Garth [Brooks]."

She added, "Either way, I never take this stuff for granted."

The husband and wife superstars have often spoken about putting their family and marriage above all else.

"I've got to tell you, I never knew it could be like this," Brooks told Elen DeGeneres of life with Yearwood in 2013. "I never knew that everyday you could wake up and feel like this. And I have God and I have Ms. Yearwood to thank for this."
