The Timeline of Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood’s Relationship
While the beginning of the first thirteen years of them knowing each other was all about little meetups, performing on the stage together, working on each other’s albums, and doing collaborations, Trisha featured Garth’s backing vocals in her first single, “She’s In Love With The Boy.” Later on, she appeared in Brook’s album, which won the title of the first country album to make it to the Billboard Top 200 “Ropin the Wind.”
Referring to their initial days, Yearwood told CMT in 2009, “We hit it off! But I had no idea he would turn out to be Garth Brooks!”. Brooks later shared his feelings: “It’s strange because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I’ve been married for 13 months” at the Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2013. While talking about Yearwood, the singer said that he “always enjoyed being around.”
In 1998, at the 40th annual Grammy Awards, Brooks and Yearwood won an award for their best collaboration with vocals for “In Another’s Eyes,” a duet from Yearwood’s 1997 album Songbook (A Collection of Hits). Their first appearance as a couple was made at the 33rd annual Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York. Brooks even received the Howie Richmond Hitmaker Award in the ceremony.
In 2005, Garth proposed to Trisha at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, California. On December 10, 2005, they tied the knot at their home outside Tulsa, Oklahoma, in a private ceremony. Brooks even said, “It’s the perfect Christmas gift for each other. We could not be happier.”.
Garth Brooks First Marriage.
Garth Brooks was first married to Sandy Mahl in 1981. They both share three daughters together: Taylor, August, and Allie. After their divorce in November 2001, they’ve been co-parenting. Their girls are grown-up ladies now. The divorce between Sandy and Garth is the most expensive one in history, but it was like a slight hit to Brooks’s pocket based on his net worth, which is around $400 million.
Sandy had no issue with him marrying Trisha Yearwood. In fact, when Brooks came up with his choice, it turned out to be a mutual choice. After their divorce, Brooks and Mahl continue to have a good friendship to date, and she and Yearwood also don’t have any walls of hatred between them.
How Is Garth and Trisha’s married life?
It has often been explained by Yearwood how their friendship acts like a pillar in their relationship. Many had doubted whether their marriage would last or not, as they both were from the music industry, and Sandy Mahl was also from the same.
In Us Weekly in 2018, Trisha shared that she feels that people thought since they both are in the same business, they would not last. Trisha does not have a kid of her own, but she has a lovely bond with Brook’s daughter. She also looks after them and enjoys having them as a part of her family. Yearwood feels like she is invested in this family, and this was all that she ever wanted for herself, and she has earned it more day by day.
The love between them can be easily sensed by the statements they make. Like Brooks once said, “I think what inspires me is that she thinks differently than me. And so it forces you out of just what you think you know, into what you don’t know, and to look over there.” to which Trisha replied, “I think what he’s saying is that he listens to me, and I’m usually right.”
The couple is like an inspiration for the lovers of the era. They’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs but were able to overcome them with the support and love of each other, which made their bond invincible. Immense love, friendship, understanding, and care have been sensed between this couple, who have been together for 18 years and counting.
