Both on- and offstage, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are in perfect harmony.
Brooks, 51, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday to chat about his wife of eight years, with whom he recorded a remake of "After the Fire Is Gone" – one of a handful of songs featured on his new box set, which just hit stores.
During the sit-down, the country crooner recounted first meeting Yearwood back in 1987 – he was already married to his college love Sandy Mahl then – and according to Brooks, his connection with Yearwood was immediate.

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are both vegan, but that doesn't stop them from enjoying a Thanksgiving feast.
"It doesn't make [Thanksgiving] harder at all. It makes it easier on the turkeys, too. They get to live," DeGeneres, 55, told PEOPLE at the Duracell Power a Smile and Toys for Tots event on Nov. 22.
So what does The Ellen DeGeneres Show host fill her plate with?
"Yams, green beans, stuffing ... any kind of vegetables. Stuff like that," she said.

Lady Gaga wants to make something clear: She and boyfriend Taylor Kinney aren't as different as people think.
The "Do What U Want" singer, 27, called her buff-bodied hottie a "hidden weirdo" during an appearance Friday on Ellen. "He is extremely strange, actually. We complement each other's weirdness. That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It's a Dr. Seuss quote. You find in someone else a compatible weirdness."
Gaga, who met the Chicago Fire star on the set of her "You and I" video in 2011, said she "looked ridiculously crazy" during their first encounter.

Is there really ever a case of too much of a good thing? Not when we're talking about a nearly naked James Franco.
The actor, 35, got the social media world hot and bothered last week when he Instagrammed a pic of himself wearing nothing but a red Speedo and a Santa hat (alongside a cat in a Santa hat).
But while fans thought Christmas had come early – a James Franco with Cats calendar would be the perfect stocking stuffer – they were sorely disappointed to learn that the six-pack abs belonged to a model, whose face had been swapped out with Franco's courtesy of some clever Photoshopping by Ellen DeGeneres' staff ahead of his appearance on her show on Monday.

Kerry Washington has graced countless magazine covers including a recent issue of PEOPLE. But who knew she was the covergirl for Chess Masters and Kale Quarterly?
Those funny, far-flung – and fake – magazines were among several that Ellen DeGeneres mocked up with images of the Scandal star to surprise her during an interview airing Thursday on Ellen.
"This is a nightmare," she says. "They're all here."
Amid fits of laughter, the expecting actress, 36, had comebacks to each of the magazines.

It will be a December to remember for James Franco, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres and her Photoshop skills!
The actor, 35, shared a hilarious photo on Instagram on Wednesday showing his face superimposed on the body of a shirtless hunk in red underwear and a Santa hat, with a similarly festive cat sitting on his shoulder.
Apparently it was the work of DeGeneres, who seems to have made Franco the unwitting star of a mildly racy holiday calendar.
