Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks fans, rejoice!
The country couple — who wowed with their powerful duet “In Anothers Eyes” in 1997 — worked on recording their new Christmas duets album over their holiday break, WIN 98.5 reported on Wednesday Jan. 20.
“To hear her do “What Are You Doing New Years Eve?” is like, ‘Oh my God!'” Brooks gushed of his wife’s singing while backstage at their first World Tour stop of 2016.

“It was supposed to be a duet… About 30 seconds into the song I just walked out of the studio because I knew it wasn’t going to be a duet,” the 53-year-old “Friends in Low Places” singer continued. “I wasn’t about to open my mouth after that, you know? It’s just her doing her greatest Ella [Fitzgerald], you know, impersonation with Trisha kinda mixed in there. It was amazing!”
Though Garth and Trisha — who tied the knot in 2005 — haven’t released a Christmas album together in the past, each have successfully recorded them separately. Garth released “Beyond the Season” in 1992 and “Garth Brooks and the Magic of Christmas” in 1999. Trisha, 51, similarly released “The Sweetest Gift” back in 1994.
