WPTV's Interview with Garth Brooks

Garth Brooks, "You can expect stupidity, as usual" at Orlando Concert

What to Expect

"You can expect stupidity, like usual," joked Garth Brooks. "You know, we're gonna stay there way too late because Orlando's always kind of a party town."

"We'll crank up the volume and hopefully stay there late," he continued. "We're going to play all the old stuff. Because we bring all the old stuff with us because, as a guy that still goes to concerts to the guys that [I] loved, I come to hear the old stuff. So play me that old stuff, and if you play all the old stuff, [the audience will] let you get some new stuff in there too."

Does his wife, Trisha Yearwood, travel with him?

"We do everything together," he said. "So we try to keep the nights that we spend apart like maybe down to four or five if we can. We both were married before. And then were saying, 'Like, why are we being married to be apart?' kind of thing. So we do everything together. Now whether I show up at a show of hers, I mean, I might be backstage as Mr. Yearwood."

"But whether [I] come on stage or whether she does is always a game-time decision and people are always sweet, but trust me, I get the feeling that people love Garth Brooks a lot more if Trisha Yearwood hits that stage," Brooks laughed.

What does he keep on the tour bus?

"Well, you gotta have your power drink and your vitamins always," Brooks said. "So Dr. Pepper and M&Ms are everywhere."

Is country music becoming more inclusive?

"Well, I think we've always been inclusive," Brooks said. "I don't know if you ever saw a movie called Chocolat. But this thing was fantastic because the young guy in town is kind of being, you know, kind of bowled over by the mayor what he can preach about what he can't. And then when the mayor gets in trouble, he gets to give his own first sermon and it's all about inclusivity. Right? And it's a beautiful speech we all need to hear."
