Garth Brooks and his first wife met each other when they were still in college – it was a quick romance and an even quicker wedding. But…
As Garths’ career took off, so did the marriage – in opposite directions. You may be shocked at what he divulges in the video (SCROLL DOWN)
Recently he laid it all out on the Ellen DeGeneres Show:
“Being married, it’s gotta be right. This is who you went to college with and you were married in front of God and your family and everybody. Still, at the end of the day, there comes that time where you’re looking at the rest of your life and going, ‘How do you want to live it?’”
He met Yearwood a year after he was married, and makes it very clear that he tried as hard as he could to make his marriage work. Although he divorced in 2000, he and Trisha didn’t get married until 2005.
Of his marriage with Yearwood, it sounds like he’s still on his honeymoon:
“I never knew it could be like this,” he says. “I never knew that every day you could feel like this.”
Even though his first marriage didn’t work out, you can definitely tell that Brooks doesn’t take the institution itself lightly, but holds it in extreme high regard. He also loves being a dad and spending time with his daughters making sure they get everything from him that they need.
Currently, they are on tour and making albums together. Aside from Trisha being a huge country star, she also has her own cooking show.
