How it all began

In 1987, the couple met while recording a song at Kent Blazy's studio. When he looks back on this day, Brooks admits that he felt like he met his soul mate.

It's strange because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I'd been married for 13 months.

But they didn't give it a go because both were married, and Garth was committed to his wife and did everything to make their marriage work. So, at first, Brooks and Yearwood’s relationship was nothing more but professional. Garth’s career was taking off, so he promised the fellow struggling singer she could join him on a tour as soon as he releases an album.

He kept his promise and in two years, they went touring. Since then, the two have worked together a lot and even wrote a couple of tracks. In 2001, Brooks and his wife finalized the divorce, and Trisha’s second marriage came to an end too. Both liked to be with each other, and they had so much in common that it was hard to stay apart.

Proposal

They have been dating for four years, performing together on stage and various events. In fact, a stage is a special place for the couple. In 2005, in front of thousands of people, Garth dropped to one knee and popped the question that most girls are so willing to hear. Yearwood was shocked and the only thing she managed to say before the proposal was:

Are not you going to do this before these people?

Of course, she said "Yes." Since then, the two prove that their partnership is stronger with each day they spend together. Garth is always vocal about his wife, and he is not afraid to show his feelings. Even during interviews, he cannot help but mention his Trisha.

We wish them many years of happiness and love!
