Garth Brooks says that Trisha Yearwood wanted to change her last name for their 15th wedding anniversary, but he wasn’t about to let it happen.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood said “I do” on December 10, 2005, at their home in Owasso, Oklahoma. Their nuptials came after years of friendship and collaborations while both were married to someone else.
The pair were introduced by songwriter Kent Blazy (“If Tomorrow Never Comes”) in 1987 when they were both demo singers recording in Blazy’s attic. Four years later, they teamed up for their first album cut together for “Like We Never Had a Broken Heart,” a song on Trisha’s 1991 self-titled debut album. Another collaboration following in 1997 when they recorded “In Another’s Eyes” for Trisha’s (Songbook) A Collection of Hits.
