Garth Brooks’ ‘The Call’ About Trisha Yearwood Relationship

December 28, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

Garth Brooks is continuing to make his 2013 after he released “The Call,” which features wife Trisha Yearwood.

“It’s about that point in a relationship when you make the decision whether what you have is worth fighting for, or is it just easier to call it ‘friends’ and live life from there,” he said.

“Everybody goes through this; Miss Yearwood and I were in the middle of it in 2002-03.”

He added: “We tried cutting this song with a full band but kept going back to the Wynn performance where it’s just like two people talking to each other. The echo-type piece in this is something I haven’t seen since ‘Mockingbird’ with James Taylor and Carly Simon. I love how unique this song sounds and when you bring it down to just two voices and a guitar, the conversation happens.”

Brooks, 51, has been married to Yearwood for several years.
