Playing Trisha Yearwood Gushes Over Reba McEntire While Receiving Major Career Honor

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood stepped out in Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday and received a huge honor, as they were inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame.

"I'm from Oklahoma, and that is my home, [but] Nashville allowed me in," Brooks told ET at the event. "So now to get me a part of this community, get a star next to the queen -- Ms. Yearwood -- and then right next to Loretta Lynn, that's pretty cool."

The couple was happy, grateful and still unbelievably modest after millions of records sold and a sold-out tour.

"All I want to do is see people out there having fun and singing and if I have something to do with that, that makes it even better," Brooks said.

As for Yearwood, she's receiving a double honor -- on the Walk of Fame and, just steps away, an exhibit at Nashville's Hall of Fame Museum, where she once worked as a tour guide.

"I walked through it the other night with Reba McEntire, which was surreal in itself, and there's a signed poster of her in there that I stood in line in Nashville when I first moved here," Yearwood recalled. "She was signing autographs, and I stood in line and got an autograph. I hung it on my wall for years. And now it's in the Hall of Fame, you know. So when I went through with her, I said, 'I'm kind of embarrassed, but you're actually in my exhibit.' ... It's really surreal and wonderful."
