Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Cover Prince’s “Purple Rain”


This past weekend was all about Prince when it came to music, and the Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood concert in Columbus, Ohio was no exception.

“Just give me everything purple you got!” declares Garth, as the stage is bathed in purple. In fitting tribute, Trisha dons a “Prince-esque” purple jacket before the pair discuss Prince.

“We have done a lot of Prince in our soundchecks, but we’ve never had the nerve to do it live…” Yearwood admits, before inviting the “wall of sound” to join her on stage as they honor “the purple one.” She says that the song must be done “in his key, in Prince’s key, of course.”

Despite her nerves to do Prince proud, we’re positive that he’d love Trisha’s Garth-assisted version of “Purple Rain.”
