“We’re both very much alphas,” Yearwood explained. “We’re both very independent people who run our own ships, and sometimes when two people are driving two big ships, it can be difficult.”

Yearwood and Brooks have been married for 15 years. The “Every Girl in This Town” singer revealed that the couple does their best to “stay “independent.” Yearwood explained:

“So for us I think it was kind of navigating, how do we stay alphas, stay independent, do our own thing, feel like we run our own lives, but be a couple. It’s a balance. It’s a balance where sometimes one person is running the ship and sometimes the other person is and sometimes you’re going to butt heads.”

Yearwood also admitted that she was previously the kind of person who would run from relationships at the first sign of trouble. Now, Yearwood no longer sees running as an “option.”

“I was always the person in relationships, when things got difficult, I was really happy to just bail,” the singer admitted. “I was good at that. So this situation, it’s not an option, because this is the love of my life. So you sit down and you talk it through, and that gets you better when you get to the other side.”
