Music superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood recently appeared via video on ABC’s Good Morning America to share marriage advice with GMA‘s Robin Roberts, who’ll be marrying her fiancée, Amber Laign, soon.

“One of you has to be f****** miserable,” Garth says. “That’s right, and I am not happy,” Trisha swiftly responds in agreement as they both break out in laughter.

“Never go to bed mad at each other,” Garth continues before Trisha interjects in jest to ask if he Googled that.

The couple then hit pause on their banter to offer a heartwarming piece of advice.

“You want to know the secret to a happy marriage? Marry your best friend,” they share.
