The powerhouse country couple spoke with Fox News on Friday at the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Award gala in Los Angeles, Calif. about a more modest topic — Brooks’ honey-do list and his handyman skills around the home.
“He is a whatever-it-takes-guy," Yearwood, 54, said about her superstar husband at the gala honoring music legend Dolly Parton. “He is. I saw him looking up a video on how to repair the sink in the bathroom, and he did it from watching a video.
“If I go, ‘Hey, I need a dress for tonight and I don’t have time to go shopping,’ he could buy the dress and it would be perfect. I’m telling you, he is amazing,” the “Wrong Side of Memphis” singer continued.
Brooks, 57, couldn’t help but sing his wife’s praises and offered up his own anecdote about Yearwood’s willingness to get her hands dirty around the house.
“That’s very sweet. I can one-up her,” Brooks began. “I needed some help stringing fence once, and she put some Carhartts on and we went out and strung fence, and I’ve been in love ever since.”
Yearwood married the “More Than a Memory” crooner in 2005 after two previous marriages and is the stepmother to Brooks’ three daughters from his previous marriage to Sandy Mahl.
On Thursday, Yearwood gushed about her 13-year marriage to Brooks to the New York Post, telling the outlet she doesn’t have any complaints about having to work on Valentine’s Day.
“You know, this is going to sound so corny, but it’s really kind of Valentine’s Day every day,” the three-time Grammy winner said.
“I have told him that he is my arm candy that night — he’s just going to be cute,” she told The Post with a laugh. “The Rainbow Room is going to be elegant and romantic, so I’m looking forward to it.”
