Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood were once young artists trying to break into the scene. That was decades ago. Now, with years of experience, the married couple gladly offers advice to today’s new artists.
In early September, Brooks and Yearwood received spots on the Music City Walk of Fame and spoke to the press at a media event after the ceremony.
“My advice to anybody is, there’s a fine line between compromise and not compromising [on] those decisions of where you’ll bend,” Brooks told reporters. “And the people that help you with those decisions is what it’s all about.”
Yearwood chimed in, expressing her opinion about making the music you want to make, no matter where it is.
“Every artist who is making records today and is successful at it can relate to that feeling that it’s in you, that you have to create. You have to do it,” she said. “I’ve often said that if I wasn’t getting to it on this level, I’d probably be singing down at the Holiday Inn five nights a week and be happy about it.“
Yearwood also wants every artist to keep at it, and to not give up their drive for success.
“I think it’s probably harder now than ever to get a record deal and to keep it and be unique and different … My best advice is to be true to yourself. Most artists, even at a young age, have a real sense of what kind of music they want to do. Stick with that, even when it seems really tough.”
The two singers have incredible resumes to back up their advice. Combined, they have multiple CMA awards, ACM Awards, Grammys, platinum-selling albums and chart-topping singles.
Speaking of chart-topping singles, here are each of their most well-known and iconic songs.
