Garth Brooks visited Ellen to promote his new box set, but ended up gushing about his wife.
Everyone in Hollywood seems to be in high spirits this week, especially Garth Brooks, who used his appearance on The Ellen Show yesterday (Friday) to talk about his marital harmony with Trisha Yearwood.

The song will be featured on Brooks’ new box set, currently out in stores. The now-couple met back in 1987, but they didn’t get married until eight years ago.
