Trisha Yearwood’s Net Worth – How She Made Her Money
Trisha Yearwood has achieved the kind of success that many entertainers can only dream of. Yes, she may not be as tall as her husband Garth Brooks, but Yearwood has achieved amazing success over the years. Most of her wealth is, of course, her music career, which she earns through album sales and concert tours.
Yearwood’s success, however, was not easy for her. In high school, where she was an A student, she wanted to become an accountant, but fate had other plans up her sleeve. After graduating high school, the Georgian-born woman moved to Nashville, Tenessee, to work as an agent for musicians. After this move failed, Yearwood decided to become a musician. She tried college, but got bored and started working at MTM Records, where she started recording demos and, after a chance encounter with a certain Garth Brooks, got her career off to a good start.
Yearwood’s self-titled debut album topped the Billboard country charts and sold over 2 million copies. Her fourth studio album, Thinkin’ About You, was an immense success and earned her the first Grammy Award ever. She has released at least 12 studio albums.
Along the way, Yearwood has earned many millions by touring with her husband on “The Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood”. The tour began in September 2014 and has been running for over 4 years. According to Forbes’ calculations the tour earns at least $1 million per stop. By September 2018, the tour has grossed over $360 million with 366 shows. Their website of the same name is estimated at about $6,000. Trisha Yearwood’s net worth is estimated at over $40 million, while her husband Garth’s fortune is estimated at over $280 million.
Husband – Garth Brooks and Kids
Trisha Yearwood is married to country ace Garth Brooks. She was friends with Brooks on the donkey for years before they finally formed a life-long bond on December 10, 2005. The couple is now known for its frequent collaboration, which has made them very successful tours together. The first time Yearwood worked with Brooks was in 1989 when she performed as a backing vocalist on several tracks for his album No Fences. Garth hadn’t yet become famous with his music at the time and promised to help Yearwood sign a record deal if his career took off. He kept his promise, and the rest is history.
Shortly after both Yearwood and Brooks struggled with bad divorces, they found love and started dating in 2000. Brooks had just divorced her estranged wife, Sandy Mahl, while Yearwood had broken up with the Mavericks’ bassist, Robert “Bobby” Reynolds, in 1999, whom she married on May 21, 1994.
Shortly after they began dating, Yearwood took a 4-year break from music. On May 25, 2005, Garth Broks proposed to her on stage in front of 7,000 fans at Buck Owen’s Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, California. It was such an emotional moment that Yearwood was stunned. When asked if she would be able to perform on stage with Grath shortly after the proposal, she replied, “I don’t think I can make it up the stairs. Her sheer excitement was visible to everyone.
Despite the very public engagement, Yearwood and Brooks held a very private wedding ceremony at their home in Owasso, Oklahoma. While it was Garth’s second, it was Yearwood’s third. Their first marriage was to musician Chris Latham in 1987. They divorced in 1991.
Yearwood has never had children with any of their husbands. Her marriage to Garth Brooks, however, made her the stepmother of Garth’s three children with his former wife. The children are daughters: Taylor Mayne Pearl (born 1992), August Anna (born 1994), and Allie Colleen Brooks (born 1996).
Yearwood’s husband Garth Brooks is considered by many to be a living legend. He has sold over 140 million records worldwide.
