Country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been happily married since 2005, but sometimes you have to have patience until the stars align and the timing is perfect. Despite the sweet romance the superstars publicly display currently, their first meeting was platonic.
What’s fitting is that country music is what brought the singers together. They met for the first time in 1987 when both were still struggling artists without record labels. This encounter was two years before Brooks’ first album was released following his record deal with Capitol Records. They were in songwriter Kent Blazy’s attic studio recording a demo. Blazy would actually go on to write hit songs for Brooks, “If Tomorrow Never Comes” and “Ain’t Goin’ Down.”
