Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood ‘inspired’ by Jimmy Carter to ‘bicker back and forth’ for healthy marriage

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood say former President Carter and his wife Rosalynn have “inspired” them in large ways and small, including how they “bicker” in their marriage. 

“They’ve inspired us in a lot of ways, in the ways you expect: humanity, humbleness, work ethic,” Brooks told People magazine this week. “But they’ve also inspired us by their example as husband and wife. We worked beside them for the last 15 years, and you notice right away they bicker back and forth about the right way to do things. That kind of works for us too!” 

The “Friends in Low Places” singer, 61, and Yearwood, 59, have been married since 2005. Carter, 99, and Rosalynn, 96, tied the knot in 1946. 

Earlier this month, the country power couple led the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Charlotte, North Carolina, a collaboration with Habitat for Humanity that has built more than 4,000 homes in 14 countries with more than 100,000 volunteers since it was founded in 1984. 

“The cheers and the tears — their journey inside their house has begun,” he explained. “And the Carters said it best: If you go to sleep with a roof over your head, you’re spoiled.”
