Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have plans to record an album of duets recorded live in front of fans. In a recent interview with Variety, Brooks said the idea came about from a letter from fans requesting a duet concert featuring Brooks and Yearwood.
"I'm looking at her going, 'No, wait a minute, let's combine the two ideas. What if we cut a live duet record in front of a live audience? And that's how we do our duet record?' And then all of a sudden you have a live greatest hits duet record and people get to watch how a record is made, so you kind of bring the studio to the stage," Brooks told Variety.
In the interview, Brooks said he and Yearwood were discussing recording the album at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. He also said the couple wants to record the album in the next year or so.
We'll have to wait for more details on the album and duets concert, but given the couple's long history of collaboration, it's sure to be worth the wait.
Yearwood will release Let's Be Frank, an album of Frank Sinatra songs, in early 2019.
