Earlier this year, Trisha Yearwood fought through illness after contracting COVID-19. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Yearwood shared details of her sickness and said that she didn’t want to be the one responsible for getting Garth Brooks sick.

“He would not stay away from me. I’m like, ‘Dude, I cannot be responsible for giving Garth Brooks COVID,'” Yearwood said of her husband of almost 16 years. “‘You have to go quarantine on the other side of the house.'”

“He would not do it. He was really worried about me. But, he never got sick and he was vaccinated. He took really good care of me, but he drove me crazy.”

The “Walkaway Joe” singer also shared that he was lucky she didn’t have a severe case of COVID.

“We were lucky that COVID didn’t go into our lungs, but that’s probably also why we have more trouble here,” she explained, pointing at her face. “It was just no joke.”

During a visit to the Kelly Clarkson Show in April, Yearwood revealed that she had lost her sense of taste and smell, a symptom that is likely unnerving when you’re the host of a cooking show.

“About five days in, I’m like, ’Honey…because Garth makes my coffee every morning…honey, I love you but this is weak coffee.’ It was just like that,” she said.

Trisha called her husband “an alien” due to the fact that he never got COVID, and after receiving the vaccine didn’t even have a sore arm.

“He’s an alien and I think we’ve proved this,” she told Clarkson. “….he was like, ‘We’re in this together.’ …And he never did [get COVID]. He had the vaccine and he didn’t even have a sore arm.”
