Here’s the secret to Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks’ wedding
Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are a powerful couple in the country music landscape. But what many may not know is that their relationship started on a professional level. The two met in 1988 through a mutual friend and songwriter Kent Blazy, who worked with Yearwood before Brooks, according to Country Thang Daily. After hearing Brooks’ voice, he fell in love with it and 100% hooked. Half musical genius, half cupid, Blazy had the two emerging artists collaborate on a handful of songs. Eventually Brooks’ singing career took off and he was headlining his own tour with Yearwood in the passenger seat. The two became an instant country music duo.
“I knew him before his debut album came out, so I got to watch that hit and see it become just a bigger, more famous version of himself. And it was really precious to me as a first part. for him in ’91 to watch, ”Yearwood told The Boot. The tour not only took their relationship to new (platonic) heights, but it also deepened their mutual respect, which only further solidified the foundation for a future relationship.
