Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Handled Hosting Duties for The Ellen Show

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Handled Hosting Duties for The Ellen Show

Late last week Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood stepped into the hosting duties on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

Garth has handled the guest host spot before on his own, and the last time the couple was suppose to step in for Ellen COVID stepped in and changed plans. But now they were ready, and Trisha couldn’t have been anymore excited about the opportunity.

Opening the show in front of a digitally distanced audience, they mentioned that they recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary, which in Hollywood years was like 200. Being out on the West Coast, Garth and Trisha also joked that if they were a Hollywood couple, they’d have to mash their names…like Grisha, or Tarth. They also dished out some marriage advice to the audience…

Matthew McConaughey was the guest on show, and among all the other things Trisha and Garth talked to him about, Trisha actually got to reminisce with Matthew about her music video for “Walkaway Joe” – which was one of Matthew’s first big acting jobs.

Magician Jon Dorenbos was on the show as well. Actually Jon has a history with the country couple too…he met Garth and Trisha 20 years ago, and in honor of their full-circle moment, he performed an incredible illusion that brought them back to that first meeting.

And just in case you haven’t seen the music video, here’s Trisha’s “Walkaway Joe” which features Matthew McConaughey…and also Don Henley on vocals.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
