Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are the true definition of #couplegoals.
The pair married in 2005 and have grown to become one of country music's most famous, powerful and adored couples..for good reason.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are currently country music's reigning power couple, but did you know the two have been friends since before either singer was signed by a record label?
"It's strange because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I'd been married [to Sandy Mahl] for 13 months," Garth said of their first meeting in a 2013 interview on the Garth promised Trisha that she could open for him once he got a record deal, according to CMT.
Two years later, following the release of his first album, Garth kept his word and the two friends went on tour together.
The two wed at their house, in front of only family members.
“It’s the perfect Christmas gift to each other,” Brooks says of their nuptials.
They also collaborated on duets such as "Like We Never Had a Broken Heart," from Trisha's debut album, and "In Another's Eyes," which appeared on her 1997 record, In 2000, Garth retired to spend more time with his daughters. (By that point, Trisha had divorced, remarried, and split with her second husband, bass player Bobby Reynolds.)Quietly and away from the public eye, romance began to blossom for the longtime friends.
In 2002, they were spotted holding hands at a memorial service for Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard—their first public acknowledgment of their feelings for each other.
He also sang “In Another’s Eyes” with Trisha Yearwood.
And she passionately belted her classics including “How Do I Live” and “She’s in Love With the Boy.”Brooks’ recent Yankee Stadium concerts marked the first time the country superstar has performed in New York since 1997 when he played to nearly a million people in Central Park. It’s like George Strait’s “Troubadour” when he sings, “I still feel 25 most of the time.” My knees don’t, but I do.
Garth Brooks may have been standing on stage in Yankee Stadium before tens of thousands of fans, but his words had such an intimacy about them.
