Although Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood met in 1987, they didn't marry each other until 2005. Read more about how the two country music stars fell in love here.

Garth Brooks wife (Trisha Yearwood) has known Garth since 1987 and the couple had to wait several years before getting married.  Now, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been married (since December 10, 2005) for more than 13 years, they have become one of country music’s most inspirational couples. However, when they first met in 1987, neither was signed with a music label. At the time, they each were recording a demo song trying to promote themselves to different labels. Although they both instantly felt a love connection, both Brooks and Yearwood were married to other people. “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,” Brooks said in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After meeting in the studio, Oklahoma native Garth Brooks promised Yearwood he would let her tour with him if he ever made it big. A couple years later, Brooks fulfilled his promise to Trisha Yearwood, and the pair began touring together around North America. On top of allowing Yearwood to open for his concerts, he performed several new songs with his new best friend such as “Like We Never Had A Broken Heart.”

A brief retirement in 2000 coincided with Garth Brooks divorcing his wife at the time, Sandy Mahl, and less than two years later Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks went public with their relationship. Fast forward a couple more years to 2005, and the pair tied the knot in a small wedding just before Christmas. “It’s the perfect gift to each other. We could not be happier.” Brooks told People. Since the two lovebirds have such a strong partnership, there’s no doubt they will enjoy many more years together.
