Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are empty nesters and even grandparents at this stage of the game, but a certain Christmas tradition keeps Garth's three daughters coming back home to share some quality family time during the holidays.
Trisha tells us: “The biggest tradition that we've done since the girls were little is to decorate the tree together, and even though we are all in different places and the girls are grown that is still a tradition, so our tree might get decorated day before Christmas but that is the one thing that we hold true to, and the girls . . . You know when you're little — I know we're all this way — things that your parents thought were cool when you were a kid that you thought, 'Why are we doing this?' As you get older it becomes important to you so we probably would've let the tradition go but they were like, 'No, we have to decorate the tree together,' so it's something that we continue to do.”
Trisha is featured on Sunday's (Dec. 15th) Kennedy Center Honors special airing on CBS at 8 p.m. ET. She is performing for honoree Linda Ronstadt. The show was taped earlier this week, and Trisha shared a picture on Instagram writing, “To be a part of honoring Linda at the Kennedy Center last night was a lifelong dream fulfilled. Thank you, Linda for teaching me through your life and music to trust myself and follow my instincts. I love you.”
