Watch: Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Reveal Secrets to Their Long Marriage

In Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's eyes, the secret to a long-lasting marriage is fun. 

After all, the country music couple couldn't help but to joke around when sharing relationship advice to Good Morning America's Robin Roberts ahead of her wedding to longtime partner Amber Laign.

"We've been asked to tell you what we think the secret of a happy marriage is, because we've been at it for almost 18 years," Tisha gushed in a video message aired on Aug. 30. But after a few seconds of awkward silence, the 58-year-old turned to her husband and quipped, "Are you gonna go?"

The video cut to several hilarious outtakes of Garth, 61, and Trisha bickering and messing up their lines.

"One of you have to be f--king miserable," he joked in one scene, prompting Trisha to chime in, "That's right—and I am not happy."

Elsewhere in the clip, Garth offered up the age-old adage of "never go to bed mad at each other," though his wife didn't seem too thrilled with the basic tip.

"What?" Trisha sarcastically retorted. "Did you Google that?"

So, what is the real key to a successful union? After Garth took Trisha by the hand, the two singers jointly said, "Marry your best friend!"

The sweet sentiment echoed words of wisdom the duo previously shared with E! News about marriage. For Trisha, who refers to herself as the "bonus mom" to Garth's three daughters Taylor, 31, August, 29, and Allie, 27, with ex Sandy Mahl, it all comes down to "friendship, laughter and mutual respect—and just love."

In fact, the "She's in Love with the Boy" singer noted that her husband was "flirting with me in text" as they got ready for the 2023 ACM Awards.

"You were flirting pretty hard," she lovingly teased Garth. "It's always a first date, you know? It just really is." 

To which he responded, "Come on, you can see why I'm in love with her."
