Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Win Grammy for Country Vocal Collaboration

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Feb. 26, 1998--Last night at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood took home honors for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for the performance of their No. 1 hit duet, ``In Another's Eyes.''

It was Brooks' second Grammy, his first coming in 1992 for ``Ropin' the Wind.'' Last night Yearwood went on to win the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, bringing her total to three. She and Aaron Neville won in the Country Vocal Collaboration category three years ago for ``I Fall to Pieces.''

``In Another's Eyes'' was included on both Yearwood's ``Songbook: A Collection of Hits'' disc and Brooks' ``Sevens'' CD.

Brooks was not at the awards ceremony, but he was in New York, rehearsing for his upcoming role as host and musical guest on ``Saturday Night Live'' this Saturday, Feb. 28. Yearwood called him to relay the good news.

``Winning the Grammy was an honor,'' said Brooks, ``but the biggest honor for me was winning it with Trisha Yearwood.''

Yearwood said, ``It's always exciting to win an award, but to share that win with a friend is even better. I had such a great time singing with Garth, and I'm proud that our first duet won a Grammy.''
