Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks have been country music’s power couple for quite some time, and even they can’t get enough of each other after all these years.

The loving pair, who have been married for almost 12 years now, spend a lot of their time together on the road and back at home. Although it may be overload for a lot of other relationships to be that close at all times, the two of them don’t really mind it because they just consider it as hanging out with one of their best friends.

Yearwood went on the record to dish on anything she hates about being around Brooks for the majority of her time, in which she happily dispelled any sort of connotation that she gets worn out from the constant coupling.

“We really enjoy each other’s company. We’re kind of that sappy couple. I mean, I wanna say…like people go, ‘Oh, he leaves the cap off the toothpaste,’ which now the cap doesn’t come off the toothpaste. But it’s like I don’t care! Who cares! He’s really a gentleman, so he’s very thoughtful about all of those things anyway. And everybody always says, ‘Is it just too much togetherness?’ But it really isn’t. I love to have a complaint about him, but he’s really perfect,” Yearwood gushed to People over her famous leading man.

When Yearwood switches gears from her performance live to that of being a mom back on the homefront, she feels honored to be as accepted as she’s become in the Brooks household. As a “bonus mom,” she never felt out of place and gives the same love straight back to the kids she’s gotten to raise so well.

“I had a dog when I moved to Oklahoma and I was kinda thrown into all of a sudden being a bonus mom to these three young girls,” she revealed about the benefits of the time away from the stage. “And I had no idea what I was doing. I have to say that now as these girls have grown—they’re adults now on their own—it’s been a part of my life that I would have never would have even known to dream about and it’s been so rewarding to get to be a part of this family.

Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks only have a handful of dates left on their calendar for the year, which fans can find more information about them on her website.
