As a parent and a husband, Garth Brooks has changed over the years, and he is open about some of those changes. The 61-year-old country music legend acknowledged that he wasn’t the best parent or spouse early in his career but has since sought to make up for it in a recent interview with Billboard.
Sandy Mahl, a musician, and Brooks were married for the first time in May 1986 after dating for 13 years. After their separation in March 1999, they eventually got a divorce in December 2001, but not before ushering three children into the world: Taylor, 30, August, 29, and Allie, 26.
“I was a terrible husband; I sucked at being one. I was a terrible father. In his interview with Billboard, Brooks stated, “I had to get my s-t together.
He acknowledged the negative press he had received in the beginning of his career and said that, under different conditions, he would have been fired.
“I was a terrible father and spouse, and it landed me on the front page of USA Today. I never would have survived that without social media, stated Garth Brooks. After coming to the conclusion that something needed to change, he started dating Trisha Yearwood, a fellow country performer.
They met in 1988 and were fast friends, but they didn’t start dating until after Brooks and Mahl’s separation. Before Brooks proposed and they were married on December 10, 2005, they dated for three years. The past 17 years have been spent together in a happy marriage.
I’ll tell you this, the person you’re with does make a significant difference in your life, Brooks said of his wife, whom he described as an excellent ‘bonus mum’ to his three girls. The couple has regularly praised their love for one another over the past 20 years and knows how to keep things interesting.
In a May interview, Yearwood admitted that she and her husband still flirt a lot and that every day is like their first date. Brooks acknowledged in a subsequent interview that it was obvious why he loved his wife. He told E! News, “Come on, you can see why I’m in love with her.
In his interview with Billboard, Garth Brooks talked about the cancel culture and how he doesn’t stop listening to bands just because they are cancelled. “Just because The Chicks’ concert was abruptly postponed doesn’t mean their music wasn’t good. He stated, “They had great music.
He mentioned some of the artists, like Luke Combs, The Chicks, and Lainey Wilson, from whom he greatly anticipates hearing new songs. For those who are interested, Brooks wants to release some new music and will shortly start his new residency in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Chris Gaines, a country music performer, is set to release new music under his alternative rock character. He also has plans to produce a new duets album with his wife, Trisha Yearwood. As part of his new residency there, fans may catch him play in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Additionally, Garth Brooks is currently engaged in other endeavours. Brooks is presently attempting to open a brand-new pub in Nashville, Tennessee, in addition to his musical endeavours. The business will be called “Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk” and will be located at 411 Broadway, in the famous Lower Broadway neighbourhood.
